Ah, I see. So it's primarily intended for diagnosing and recovering from physically defective disks. Good to know, because there are times when you exactly need to do this. So it's much more "hardware oriented" than the usual candidates for recovery programs. So the strange mentioning of "Linux and other file systems" just seems to be of a marketing nature. :-) -- Polytropon Magdeburg, Germany Happy FreeBSD user since 4.0 Andra moi ennepe, Mousa, ... _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-questions-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
