    Those comments indicate that imminent hardware failure cannot be repaired by software "fixes". -- rolandjs
    Isn't that patently obvious? -- cereberus

    Well, when it's your data that for whatever reason is lost, one can forget the obvious; or, for many computer users, it is not obvious -- for them it's a race with software after software after software trying to recover what wasn't previously backed up, they want their stuff back NOW, they earlier did not recognize the subtle signs of an imminent HD failure. There are many wonderful new computers users out there who have not yet encountered: backup/restore, data recovery, imminent HD failure signs. [I'm in classes of 7-grade dudes, watching them like a hawk, so I might be a little disconnected today.]

    Making the backup is only half of the solution. Being able to recover the system from the backup is the other half. There are plenty of threads on this forum with the general situation of "My system crashed, but I have this backup. Now what do I do?"

    It is nearly as important to have the means available to recover the system from the backup prepared and tested before the need arises to use it.

    Because of the wealth of information provided by data recovery folks in numerous forums on The 'Net, I have these two threads [along with a few others elsewhere] for the purpose of passing on your wisdom and experience, passing on your advice and ideas.
    college cafe's Computer Technologies;
    Thread title: First Response Restore and Recovery ideas, beliefs, practices, experiences
    Dost-Tech's Microsoft Windows Support; subGroup: Backup, Restore, Recovery; Ext/Int FD&HD MGT
    Thread title: First Response restore and recovery ideas, beliefs, practices, experiences

    Anyone, everyone, is very much welcomed to add content, add comments, ask questions, etc. Those threads hopefully will awaken end-users who are in any sort of data loss crisis, to consider
    -- data recovery concepts and practices
    -- restoration and copy-back concepts and practices
    as a Unified Whole rather than linear parts and parcels.

    Also, rather than over and over printing a post in numerous threads across The 'Net, I'm going to print the vast majority of "rollerstoller"-generated stuff in two threads in those two forums. You all can from time to time visit the above two and see additional stuff.
