HDD Recovery via SSH
Recently my server crashed for no apparent reason and well does not boot anymore, so the only thing I can do is work via the rescue CD and SSH. I thought I could just choose /etc /var and /home via WinSCP and just copy them to my home work station, but the thing is, it appears to go into a loops. The HDD is 167GB in size, but the files that it downlaods goes up to 300Gb plus and does not seem so stop at any time. The same goes if I try to tar those directories, it just tars until the HDD space runs out.
Is there anyway to just simply copy my files?
