What I would like to recover is onle a bunch of files on the /usr partition
like the web stuff for apache and some other files.
So, now I get the feeling that the installation is completely screwed.
connectors. In general I find that the connectors for the ps mouse and the
sata connectors are rather mickey-mouse... they are often getting bad
connections and without any intervention to the computer housing or
innard... gremlins or strange vibrations?
What are my options? is there a way I could access these files?
It is rather strange, or is it, that I have had problems with sata hdd
There's not enough information to conclude exactly what is wrong with your
machine but if you have hardware problems, you should immediately buy a new
drive (USB drive will also work), boot the machine in single-user mode,
mount the relevant file systems read-only and transfer important files to
the new drive.
If you still want to reinstall /repair the existing system, AFAIK,
FreeBSD's default installer has an "upgrade mode", in which you'll need to
tell it which partition/slice was originally mounted where and it will
proceed to install the base system. It will not touch your home directories
