finding a tarball on a fat-less fat partition
I started up on this a couple of weeks ago, and got swamped.
I have a new big drive, and my old one will go to beef up the kids
computer. In the process, I'm switching it from FreeBSD to Debian.
I created a new primary fat partition, tarred /home to it (without
compression), and then overwrote the fat when I tried to use the
cylinder numbers to make it part of an extended partition (we got this
far last time :).
It was a brand new partition, and only two files should ever have been
written there (tars of /home and /etc), so I presume that they were
Any suggestions on how to recover these?
