How to copy ext2fs from failed hard drive to good drive?
I have a Maxtor DiamondPlus 9 80GB hard drive that has failed. The partion table is corrupt and cannot be written. I can read the drive, however, and have successfully transferred all MS-Windows partitions to a new drive. Using R-Linux, I can recover individual files it finds and can, probably, capture the entire ext2fs partition to a MS-Windows partition on the new drive. What I would like to do is copy the ext2fs partition on the failed drive to an ext2fs partition on the new drive. What tool can I use to make the copy? When copied successfully, I hope to boot the copied partition and use fsck to fix the damaged inodes. Thanks for any help.
