 Drive recovery comes to Linux

"Both companies agree, for recovery purposes, a drive is a drive at the component level. Both companies work with a variety of drive manufacturers and maintain inventories of parts and clean room facilities. However, there can be variation at the file system level. Both companies handle a range of Linux file systems. "OnTrack supports EXT2, EXT3, XFS, and ReiserFS," says Ontrack's director of software and services Jim Reinert. "Our tools and procedures become specialized for each file system." When asked what file systems DriveSavers supports, John Christopher, a data recovery engineer and spokesman for DriveSavers, answers with a simple and unquantified "all of them.""
