comment Text editor to edit 4.3 GB plain text file
You seem to have linked the wrong question.

comment Mistakingly Erased Hard Drive
Aside from restoring a backup, no.

comment Failed to mount UDF
Can you mount other dvds in that drive? Either the disc or the drive seems to be broken.

comment Possible Memory Leak on Ubuntu 10.04 LTS
You have 3.5 gb os free memory there.

comment Failed to mount UDF
Looks like the disc may be no good. Check dmesg for more details.

comment kernel panic due to IO error
Most likely you don't need to reinstall; you need to replace the defective hard drive. Boot from the livecd and check the disk's SMART health in the disk utility and you will probably see it is failing.

comment Disk image without wasting space
@Adeline, the "user" who owns the file is just an integer. The mapping from that number to a name won't make sense ( i.e. tools can't translate it to a human readable name, so they will just show the number ) on the live booted system, but it doesn't have to. Once you boot the restored system the names will make sense again since /etc/password will be restored to the state where it defines them.

comment Thunderbird does not delete mails on the server
@user262898, either you aren't seeing it, or you aren't using pop. If you are using IMAP, then the point of that protocol is to keep the mail on the server rather than download them locally.

comment Disk image without wasting space
@Adeline, you don't even have to install; you can just boot from the install cd, format the drive, untar, and reinstall grub. See the link I added to my answer for details.

comment How to make a disk image and restore from it later?
While I am a fan of dump, it is not an image based backup.

comment How to install specific Ubuntu packages, with exact version?
@Cookie, you can't use = since the repository only contains at most two versions: the one that was there at release, and the most recent update. If you want two wholly different releases to use the same version there is no supported way of doing that, hence why you have to build it from source yourself and deal with any problems that may arise from that.

gparted doesn't see the disk at all? What does see it?

comment Choosing which hard drive to boot from
Question is unclear: "a way to get windows to use the windows boot manager"? What else would it use? "is there an easier way to make grub recognize the bootloader on another hard drive": easier than what? You already said this worked fine.

Check /var/log/syslog for more details on the cause of the failure.

comment How to speed up rsync/tar of large Maildir?
@MikkoRantalainen, the ordering is not a requirement of the application, it is a requirement of the filesystem, hence, why the filesystem should order them however it is best.
