    i'm trying to recover some data from a laptop harddrive before i reformat it (corrupt system directory from what i can tell). if it were a desktop i'd just slave it and recover but i dont wanna pull the laptop apart. would booting it off of knoppix see the windows directories?

    From there you should be able to copy the data out onto a network share. Knoppix has allowed me to recover data from "dead" drives a few times.
