Grub Customizer is a new graphical GRUB2 settings manager which we've told you about last week.
Starting with Ubuntu Karmic, Grub2 is used (for clean installs for now), so THIS how-to on recovering the GRUB no longer works for the new GRUB2.
Let's face it: you can sometimes forget a password, because well... it happens! I can't help you with all of them, but I can tell you how to recover your lost Linux root password thanks to Tips4Linux. Just follow the below steps to recover it:
iPod drive data recovery tool is non-destructive and read only software that provides full recovery of your accidently deleted media files and folders. iPod corrupt disk mode retrieval tool revives your lost mp3, mp4, m4v, m4b, m4a, apple loss less audio, video songs and audible audio book.

Hopefully, today's title didn't give anyone the wrong impression. If you've gone and thrown your monitor off the balcony in a fit of rage, this post can't help you, except to offer the following advice: Go to the store and buy a buy a new one (they're much cheaper now than when you may have bought yours, which will help offset the counseling, therapy and court-ordered community service expenses ;)
You turn on your trusty old Linux box, and things are going well as you pass through the book loader, until the disk check reveals that your hard drive partition table is corrupt, and you are unable to access your machine. You need a good rescue disk -- and the best way to get one is to create your own.
If you've started using the beta of Firefox 3, you've probably already seen the new Smart Bookmarks folder that is created by default. This folder can be useful for looking up sites you just visited or bookmarked… but how do you get it back if you accidentally deleted it?
Ever deleted an important file? I haven’t recently done this on Linux, but when I used Windows I had a utility for recovering deleted files. Ubuntu Unleashed reported on some data recovery methods on Ubuntu, so I decided to try one of them out.
This article deals with lost or missing bookmarks, recovery methods and prevention. If changes you make to your bookmarks are not being saved or if you can't add new bookmarks, see the article Bookmarks not saved. If you got a message that your profile was already in use, created a new profile and now your bookmarks and other data are missing, read the article Profile in use.
We all hope not to lose any of our valuable data; documents, pictures etc. Well sh*t happens, right? Accidental deletion of files, system or software crash, you name it. In those cases we need a data recovery software tool. So, how about a Free-Libre Open-Source data recovery software toolkit based on Ubuntu.
If you've ever had that sick realization that you made a mistake immediately after emptying your Trash or deleting a file with Shift-Del, then Magic Rescue may be the cure you're looking for. Magic Rescue searches block devices for particular file types, then restores them to a designated directory where you can sort through them.
Disk failure, on the hardware side, is too broad to cover in any great detail here, but the following basic steps should be followed (of course, as noted, your setup may require otherwise). The scenario here is that one of your disks has just gone "bad." It's beyond recovery.
Foremost is a console program to recover files based on their headers, footers, and internal data structures. This process is commonly referred to as data carving. Foremost can work on image files, such as those generated by dd, Safeback, Encase, etc, or directly on a drive.
A full system crash (hang) is very rare on Linux. Here’s the bad news: It is still possible for programs on Linux to misbehave themselves (they are not spoiled, probably just coming down with something, or maybe growing). Perhaps the application went into an endless loop because it was feeling lonely, or just stopped responding because it was pouting when I accidentally mentioned something Microsoft-related.
If you forgot you password for your ubuntu system you can recover using the following steps:
I wanted to recover data from a failing hard drive, and asked on IRC if any good tools existed for Ubuntu. Someone pointed me towards GNU ddrescue (named
gddrescue in Debian and Ubuntu), which is designed for rescuing data from any file or block device.
After reading this article at HappyLinuxGuy’s Happy Linux Thoughts page, I thought I might share with you a way to recover password on a *nix system. The commands and screenshots here will be Ubuntu oriented, but this basic process should work for any distro.
