Most business running Unix will hopefully have a disaster recovery plan in place but if not some companies will also be able to offer Unix support as well as raid server recovery and remote support and retrieval where appropriate.

About Linux

Linux is a generic term referring to Unix-like computer operating systems based on the Linux kernel. Their development is one of the most prominent examples of free and open source software collaboration; typically all the underlying source code can be used, freely modified, and redistributed by anyone under the terms of the GNU GPL and other free licenses.

Linux is predominantly known for its use in servers, although it is installed on a wide variety of computer hardware, ranging from embedded devices and mobile phones to supercomputers. Linux distributions, installed on both desktop and laptop computers, have become increasingly commonplace in recent years, owing largely to the popular Ubuntu distribution and to the emergence of netbooks.

Whilst some companies and individuals extol the virtues of open source software given the many benefits both financial and technical others prefer the stability (if there could be such a thing given the complexity of modern software) of closed proprietary Operating systems such as the windows platform.

There will be arguments for many years as to what is the best platform (BSD, Debian, Novell, Red Hat Fedora, Solaris, SuSE to name but a few) and just like any form of software most technicians will argue for what they know best as it is virtually impossible for any single person to keep abreast of all developments across all platforms.

If you need to find out more about Linux and Unix based platforms there are a number of useful resources available including:

Linux Gazette

The name "Linux" comes from the Linux kernel, originally written in 1991 by Linus Torvalds. The rest of the system usually comprises components such as the Apache HTTP Server, the X Window System, the K Desktop Environment, and utilities and libraries from the GNU operating system (announced in 1983 by Richard Stallman). Commonly-used applications with desktop Linux systems include the Mozilla Firefox web-browser and the OpenOffice.org office application suite.....read more

Linux is UNIX-like operating system that uses the Linux kernel of the monolithic type. OS will be installed on a wide range of tablet computers, mobile phones, videogame consoles, mainframes, supercomputers, etc.

Although, statistics say, server OS, Linux accounts more than 50% of the entire global deployments. Also over the years, the Linux operating system had reasonable amount of popularity among the common home user with Fedora, Ubuntu and openSUSE distributions. Moreover, with egression of smartphones, netbooks etc running on embedded Linux operating system has been closer used by many users. Although Linux has advanced technology and features that sometimes, certain errors lead to data loss or inaccessibility, and you should look for any Linux Data Recovery software to recover back your valuable data.

In the day to day use of a Linux system, there can be enormous opportunity for data loss situations, and you can not always succeed in debugging the system to access your data. Therefore, if you do not have a valid backup available, or fail to restore data from backup, Linux File Recovery is the answer to bring your data
Joint loss situations in Linux.

Error – Mount wrong fs type, bad option, bad super block exemption regulation on / dev/hdb2.Error – Far too many mounted file system systems.File error.Grub Error 12 – Invalid device requested.Grub Error 17 – can not mount selected partition.

There may be many such errors, leading to loss or lack of access to your Linux data. In such cases, if you are a technical person, so you can trouble shoot in the low level. You can run “fsck” command to detect and correct such errors. Before you run ‘fsck’ command, first, go to single user mode. Then you unmount the file system partition, you can get to work on if it is not the root. If you do not take enough care to unmount the file system, the ‘fsck warns you, such as-’ filesystem is mounted, you continue anyway? “Saying yes to the message, can result in losing your data because sometimes ‘fsck’ writes directly to disk.

If you need to check the root file based partition, you have to start the system in single user mode and run ‘fsck’ with a ‘-b’ option so it will run in a read mode. Also, the ‘-b’ option to go directly to ‘init’ and makes an emergency start-up, while the others jump start up scripts.

Sometimes, ‘fsck’ fail to run or exits without running at all. At the time, force run the utility with ‘-f’ option. This is a case of serious corruption, and you must provide additional information to ‘fsck’, as the size of the alternate superblock or the address of the superblock to retrieve data and correct the error.

However, sometimes these low-level recovery process is tedious and risky in terms of your valuable data. Therefore, you can go to any Linux Data recovery software can recover the data to you safely.
