I am currently trying to recover three hundred media
files from a windows system that keeps rebooting.
With Puppy fire-hydrant the machine ran for a long time
without error. I could access the windows drive and the
files I wish to recover. The usb drive was mounted and
had read write permissions. the problem was I could only
copy ONE file at a time..
ON to Knoppix which also ran well, I could access the
directories and bulk copy the files but could not mount
the usb drive for some bizarre reason.
Have you tried copy the files using the command line? ie
cp -Rv /mnt/path_to_windows_mounted_file system_files/*
-R recursive (so will include sub directories)
-v verbose (so you can watch what is happening)
obviously you'll have to amend the file system paths.
