Unhappy Old Linux ext3 Partition Recovery

Hi Linuxies !

I have an old linux partition (ext3), which has my old data backup. In my new linux system when i mount the old partition, its showing nothing. I saw through Gparted that data is still there, but unable to show up.

Kindly help, how to recover files from old filesystem

Thanks in advance,
Rajesh SR.

get a distro called RIP - Recovery Is Possible

It's got tons of tools to help you recover data. If you just want to try and recover well-known files, you can use 'scalpel' or 'foremost'.
