I recently burned a copy of Inquisitor 3.0, a .ru originated distro.
I used it to test a questionable HDD I thought might be ailing. The
appy indicated "failed" and I replace the HDD. Problem is, I forgot I
had a flashdrive mounted!! ...the one with all my backed up Slack 13
files I was saving prior to an upgrade to Slack 13.37. I didn't worry
at the time, thinking I was gonna do a fresh install, but I forgot
that damn back up flashdrive was mounted. DOH!! The problem now, is
my flashdrive compromised? I have so far not remounted it to my new
Slack install, but am aching to access finely tuned config files and
tons of photo jpg's.
My question to this group is: Am I worring needlessly about the
Inquisitor live CD? I notice Softpedia does not give it their usual
safe rating. Any bad press/rumours about this distro?? If this distro
IS questionable, is there any way I can safely access my backed up
flashdrive files w/o risking the integrity of my new Slack install.
