Hi Phil,

 

I managed to boot up from the puppy cd, had the puppy logo on my screen, but my mouse and keyboard (both wireless) weren't responding, so I couldn't do anything. I plugged in a usb wired mouse, but not even that worked.

 

I am tantalisingly close, but can't figure out how to get the mouse/keyboard to work. Are drivers required to help puppy interact with them?

Try restarting with the USB wired mouse connected - if your computer has both USB 2.0 and 3.0 ports make sure that you use the black USB 2.0 port/s.

Hi Phil,

 

I managed to start the computer up in puppy and used the mouse with the black usb port.

 

Puppy recognises a new usb drive that I want to transfer the data to and also another usb drive with accessible data on it, but it's not recognising the memory stick with the RAW data on it that I want.

 

Maybe Linux isn't the solution?

I`m afraid that it was the last free role of the dice RSP  :(

 

If you go the route of paying for the recovery software I really do wish you the best of luck and would appreciate it if you could let us know if it works out for you.

Hi Phil,

 

I've decided to see if my local computer shop can sort it out. I think they only charge if they can successfully recover it, so if it doesn't work out, there's no cost.

 

I reckon that's less of a gamble than buying the software myself.

 

Thanks for all you help. I have at least learnt about Linux, which has interested me for some time.

 

Regards

I've had to start from zero and taken it as a lesson in the importance of taking backups.

HI RSP,

 

Sorry to hear that  :(

 

Backing up your data is a good idea but backing up your back ups is the best policy and ideally you should store one set of back ups securely off site, the Cloud being the most convenient.

 

Thanks for the follow up btw  :thumbsup:
