Data Recovery without Windows

Hi ppl.

Currently, we recover data by removing the clients Hard Drive, inserting it into another PC usinging an adapter and pulling the data.

Is there any bootable cd/dvd iso application the will allow me to pull the data to a shared network folder or USB Pen/Hard Drive without removing the hard drive?

REMEMBER, Windows can not be accessed due to viruses, corruption or too dam slow?

OK, I dont think I made it clear enough and ppl are doing quick google searches and copy pasting.

These links I'm already aware of but I want to beable to copy data over a Network and none of these can do that.

[Admin Edit] has lots of applications but still none work over a network including WinPE

@ jdraad:

Why copy and paste all that from a website? Just link m8.

The second link I provided allows you to copy to a network location.

Do a data recovery with GetDataBack without having to install a complete Windows operating system. Boot from a CD-ROM and run the data recovery entirely from there using the RAM for dynamic data. Copy the recovered data to another hard drive or - if you have network access enabled - to a network destination.

why don't you try to create a bootable usb with any linux distros. mount the drive which has all the data you need and save it in the usb or burn with to disc (if your cd drive has write capabilities).
I did try to create an ubuntu bootable usb  using pendrive http://www.pendrivelinux.com/ 
then boot the pc through the usb and mounted the drive i needed, got all the data i need.  
Best thing is: I am able to format and partition my pc through the usb ubuntu also. enjoy

The most practical way for me to do this is with Ubuntu. Using a windows PC you can create a pendrive installation, on a usb-stick. You can then use that stick multiple times to access your hard disk, without having to burn cd's.

If you need the tool with interface that can mount network and recover data from drives (even if the drive is detected as unformatted sometimes) then look at Rescue Kit: http://www.paragon-software.com/free/rk.html

@ wubsieonline

Tell me more.  I'm certain I can run Linus from a usb or straight CD.  Any links for a quick ISO?  Once I have the ISO, I can build the USB boot.

BartPE has the ability to create a boot CD-ROM that provides network access. have you tried it? I guess it will work.

follow this tutorial:

1. download the usb installer:
http://www.pendrivelinux.com/downloads/Universal-USB-Installer/Universal-USB-Installer.exe
2. download the ubuntu iso file:
http://www.ubuntu.com/getubuntu/download
3. once boot files are downloaded run the usb installer
4. the usb installer will ask you of what distro to put: select ubuntu and find the ubuntu .iso file you just downloaded.
5. just wait for the installation to finish and walla you have an bootable usb with ubuntu on it.

You can then boot the computer that you need to recover via usb.
Note: make sure that the computers bios is set to boot from usb first. enjoy

BTW, H**n CD is illegal and its references are prohibited here.
Moderator, please remove the name of the tool from all posts.

The problem is that H**n Cd has cracked or pirated software (no license). That's why EE does not allow it.

I am going to weigh in late on this but I like knoppix to do this exact thing.

Consider the Linux based sysrescuecd it's good for this and other recovery purposes. Just download and burn the iso

Hi guys,

An update:

I've purchased and using Active Boot Disk Suite v5.05.  This allows you to burn an iso, boot into its OS (Purpose Built Linux) and use specific Active@ tools to recover data.  Excellent tool for many scenarios including file File Transfer, Partition Recovery, Lost Data Recovery etc.
