Your windows PC died and you want to recover data?

Here is a tip for recovering data if hard disk is fine and OS just dies down…

Before you take the expensive route of recovery, enclosure or some other technique… burn a Ubuntu install CD/DVD and load it in “Demo” mode which loads the OS from CD/DVD. Once you get into Ubuntu, you will see that it mounted Windows file system as external disk and let’s you access windows files. There you go…you can copy/backup or whatever you like to do.

Good luck!
