My hosting provider has told me that the server harddisk that I am currently using is crashed and they failed to recover most of the data and they only managed to recover some files or folder from the crashed HDD (Less than 1%) by utilising the forensic recovery toolkit.
They claims that they have tried several methods such as ext3grep, linux rescue, fsck and multiple recovery tools but without success.
All my data in this 6 years is gone and they will just extend the hosting expired date to another 90 days.
Is there any other way to retrieve the data from the crashed harddisk?
I am a webdeveloper and have limited knowledge on the IT side. Basically I am using slax live CD to copy all the important files from the crash window to thumbdrive or another PC through network.
As I know mysql is storing under "/var/lib/mysql", if we manage to copy all the "table.frm" and paste in in another server, is this is going to work out?
Need your helps. Thank you.
