On Tuesday morning my HDD failed on my PC at the office. Most of my important data is in a NFS volume on a FAS6030, but my PC still had some important stuff on it. Including a Windows XP virtual machine that has all my necessary programs (Outlook, SAP, TweetDeck) and some files that I forgot to copy over to my NFS share. Using a tool called ddrescue I was able to save most of my data, I’ll go into how it works and what I did.
