'''Data Compass''' is a hardware and software data recovery tool produced by [[SalvationDATA]]. The product uses a "3+1 Data Recovery" to restore damaged media. The product is intended to recover data from hard drives with multiple bad sectors, platter surface problems, head instabilities, or are making clicking sounds. The vendor claims to spin up hard drives using an emulated [[firmware]] rather than the drive's own firmware. This could enable recovery from damaged hardware, but this claim has not been independently verified. A software component is available for filesystem repair.

vgexport makes volume groups ''unknown'' to the system, vgimport makes exported volumes ''known'' to the system. See also [http://www.tldp.org/HOWTO/LVM-HOWTO/recipemovevgtonewsys.html this]. You should also remember, that both vgexport/vgimport alter the data on the physical device. I also added "loop" option to the mount command example, since "-o ro" may alter the data in the file system (replay the journal, etc) [[User:.FUF|.FUF]] ([[User talk:.FUF|talk]]) 10:19, 7 May 2014 (CDT)
