I would expect tho, that your data you need to save is under 4G, and will fit on one DVD.
The drive is bigger than 200GB, so actually... the data I need to save
is close to 200GB! I buy spindles of Taiyo Yuden DVD-Rs, like 100 discs for about $0.41 US each shipped - way cheaper than anything else, and it's 1000x better quality. Where's my spare 250 Terabyte drive....
Put in a 2nd drive just big enough to xfer files asap, Chilled original HDD in a relatively warm freezer (in case it's physically failing) and I'm currently backing up. When it wouldn't boot Windows or mount in Linux, all I could seem to get was the firmware data like the serial #, drive size, etc. so I think the head is failing to park/unpark just like every other drive I've seen fail
Currently waiting while listening to Collective Soul's Seven Year Itch
, one of the few CDs I've ever decided was worth paying for. Buy this one (or at least download it) today!
Edit: BTW, NTFS is read-write with this Knoppix disc
