#ZipGenius News - Almost a good news! Thanks to +Linux Mint 12 on a USB stick, we've successfully accessed the failing hard disk, while #Windows wasn't allowing access just after some minutes after boot. Through Linux Mint we got ensured about the failing status of the disk but we had access to our files so we could start copying them to an external HD. We're talking about 320 GB of data: source code, graphics, setup files and so on. Currently the copy operation is ongoing and it will complete in about 6 hours - even though we can access the disk, speed transfer is extremely slow but we won't inspect this because we do care more about data integrity than speed.
When we will got the new HD we will go back coding.
Thank you for your support (and many many thanks to Linux Mint )
