Recovering A Lost Windows Drive with Knoppix

Cedric Shock has written a nice tutorial on how relatively easy it is to recover data (or at least make the attempt) from a non-bootable Windows hard drive using a Knoppix Linux CD. Many non-Linux users may be intimidated by the idea of delving into Linux to solve a Windows problem, but the CD-bootable Knoppix is one of the easiest Linux distros for newbies to deal with and Cedric’s tutorial shows how even the most moderately tech-savvy user can at least attempt recovery of a lost HD using this method.
