The disk arbitration file will attempt to mount any device it sees connected to the Mac, so one way you can stop disk arbitration from mounting the suspect's drive is by hiding this file. Simply renaming the file may not work. To do this, store a backup copy of diskarbitrationd.plist under the root directory and then delete the original.

ext2 or the second extended file system is a Linux filesystem designed as a replacement for ext. Note that ext3 is mostly compatible with ext2.

The SleuthKit and R-Studio can be used to perform recovery of data from the EXT2 filesystem. Various data carving tools like Foremost and Scalpel also support the ext2 filesystem.
