Linux FTW



So I was setting up win2k on my parents' old PC so I can give it to my sister as her PC totally crapped out. I went to copy her hard drive contents and it just told me it was corrupted right when I tried to open it. It did not even try.

I decided to boot up with Ubuntu to see what would happen, I mounted the drive, it gave me a warning about some corruption, but that it fixed it, and mounted it anyway.

The files are copying now. Go Linux!

Faster to copy through the linux command line anyway. Windows copying is so slow, and if there's one single error it craps out and stops.
