Has your computer crashed and your hard drive died? Or do you want to plan to be prepared for such a drastic situation? Just imagine what a disaster it would be to lose files and other information that you have been gathering for so many years! Of course you can avoid such a tragic case scenario by routinely taking backups. If taking backups seems time-consuming you can find many programs that automatically take backups while you’re not working on your computer or laptop. Even if you haven’t been taking backups, there are many utilities available to retrieve your data and you may also seek help from a professional who knows how to retrieve data and other computer files from a crashed computer.
If your Windows computer has crashed and there is no way you can access your computer files and other data there is still a way you can save your data using the Ubuntu live CD. A good thing about Ubuntu is that you can run it from a CD and so that you don’t need a hard drive. This tutorial tells you how to retrieve data and other computer files from a crash computer using the Ubuntu live CD.
