about AlternativeTo and TestDisk Jan 2011

Had a major issue with my HDD this weekend, general HDD failure, false failures, RAW formats, so on.

I was searching the forums for the necessary info, I had not clue what was going on, I was finding lots of theories, and possible apps that could solve my issues (filesystem changed to RAW), for a price. Found too many pay applictions with large downloads, limited trial features and the like. Upsetting to say the least. I needed something quick, free, and most of all, small.

Then I had a massive brainwave, and checked AltTo for said applications and their counterparts, eventually found a couple viable tools, but found Small TestDisk iconTestDisk to be the best of all worlds. No recovery, but I could fiddle with a corrupt MBR, boot sec, and such and such. Which was exactly the problem. And almost no forums detail the causes of these issues properly, or their (easier) solutions.

Turns out, at the end, all it really needed was a good ol' CHKDSK via DOS, something the forums said won't work. Fixed!

Thank you, and everyone involved, you saved my ass.
I'd like to start a thread of similar stories, where AlternativeTo actually saved you time, lots of money, or changed the way you do things on your PC. Call it a testimonials thread.


\EDIT: Check my blog post for what happened to my electronics this weekend. Not good things, I can tell you.
