When I plug in a removable 1TB USB disk in my laptop, the operations led keeps blinking for a while and then you can hear the servo mechanism resetting with a short "tack".
I'd like to recover the data.
I believe there might be some way to get the data through low level IOs.
What I believe is that the mounting process assumes the disk is OK and I should prevent this before using ddrescue or something similar.
Does anybody have a solution to this problem ?
