 Best way to recover a hard drive?
Author: el_kab0ng

I've had FreeBSD 4.8 running on a server for several years now and last night it decided to crap out on me. What's the best way to recover the HDD? I'm assuming some sort of liveCD with disk utilities would be the key, but I'm struggling to find a FreeBSD specific solution that's used for just these sorts of tasks.

I would use FreeSBIE and dd the drive contents to another HDD.

Nevermind. My google fu turned up a cached copy of the downloads page. Fortunately most of the links took me to valid download options.

Thanks!
