Having learned through this excellent site how to create an Ubuntu LiveCD and use it to recover files from a badly crashed Windows 7 x64 laptop, I have one final problem. The main Outlook .pst file for my profile (which I last backed up about a month before the fatal Windows 7 crash) will not move from the laptop to my NAS drive owing to an input / output error.
If the file has indeed become corrupted, I would ordinarily use the Scan PST utility in Outlook to see if it can be fixed - but since I cannot boot the Windows OS, that option isn't available.
Can anyone suggest either (a) a tool for moving the file from the laptop HD to the NAS drive that will bypass the I/O error that is preventing the same; or (b) some application or tool I can use for mending the PST file while still running Ubuntu from the LiveCD?
I guess one variation on the second of these would be to install Ubuntu fully - so if that would give me a wider range of possibilities, I would be willing to try it.
