Reiserfs data recovery


Hello all,

I am trying to retrieve data from an apparent crashed SATA harddrive. I was using SUSE 9.3 which used a ReiserFS partition. I loaded it to a windows machine which would not read the partition.

Now is there a way to read and recover the data from the linux disk/partition to the windows machine. Is there a decent piece of software that would recover the partition that someone would recommend. I have seen a few in a search but maybe someone has some freeware that would be adequate for my need to just transfer the data from the linux SUSE disk to my windows box.

Just need some recomendations....

Thanks

The easiest, cheapest and most likely successful way to
get to that data would be to boot the machine off something
like RIP (recovery is possible) or similar rescue-CD Linux
distributions.

If you search for +rescue on http://freshmeat.net you
will find plenty of others ... they're basically all
offering very similar tools.


Cheers,
Tink
