I had some trouble with my linux Fedora Core 3 machine where I did something a bit wrong and could not get the machine to boot ( some sort of permission problem). Maybe I could have fixed it however I decided to re-install Fedora 3 from scratch. In order to possibly preserve some of the data on the harddisk, I decided not to reformat the drive although the Anaconder installer did create a new partion (I think).
The install went well from there, however when I do a df -h, I get the following:
Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
72G 51G 17G 76% /
/dev/hda1 99M 21M 73M 23% /boot
none 506M 0 506M 0% /dev/shm
/dev/hdc 584M 584M 0 100% /media/cdrom
As the / mount is 76% full and I have not put much on the re-installed Fedora 3 machine, it suggests to me that all my old files may still be on the hard-disk somewhere....? Is there any way I can access the old files??
thanks in advance,
