Fix filesystem /partition


Hi
Is there any method of gaining access to data on a partition that can't be mounted, or is there a program that can access the data, or even better fix the filesystem so i can retrieve the data from the disk partition. I have already tried a live cd. Its Suse 10.2. Its not the root partition, just one set up for data
Thanks

Why can't the file system be mounted? More information about the problem would help us to understand your situation. (error messages, maybe the disk isn't spinning, the type of file system on the partition, whatever is relevant)
