Subject description: Backing up data to HDD
 

I'm running Slacko 5.9.3 on an HPG56 laptop, recently I started experiencing great difficulty switching on the machine, I can hear it powering up but nothing else seems to happen, I've changed the battery, and the Hard drive, neither seems to solve the problem and occasionally it seems to spontaneously recover. So I'm going to start backing up my HDD. The only problem is Search as I might I can't find anything about backing up data on the HDD.

Is there a simple way of doing this please? Thanks

Have you changed the Hard Drive? But you want a copy of it? I do not get it.

You have any idea what is the trouble? Is the CPU falling out? The graphic card? (Try to startup without X.) Did you clean the inside?

To copy, some ideas:
Best to startup and run from usb, so the HDD is not in use. If that does not work (cpu bad) you may have to take HDD out and rescue the data with another machine!
To copy, I can think of 2 principal ways:
- just copy (command cp) what you want to rescue
- if you want to keep the filesystem and all, use the command dd
If your HDD is damaged or the data on it is corrupted you may need special rescue tools. Hopefully not! There is a PupRescue.
