How To Fix A Corrupted Windows NTFS Filesystem With Ubuntu How many of you have had that sinking feeling as your PC boots up? You know, a slight niggle in the back of your mind that says “this is taking longer than usual” before Windows drops dead in front of you, and refuses to play ball. Me too, and much of the time the original Windows CD/DVD/USB you used in your original install can’t fix the problem. There’s a good few reasons to have Ubuntu on a CD or USB stick somewhere in a draw. When it comes to fixing your broken Windows install then Ubuntu has its uses there too. Download, Install & Boot Ubuntu Those of you who already have a dual-boot Ubuntu and Windows machine can skip this step. If you’ve not got a Live USB stick then you’re going to need to get hold of one. If you’re dual-booting, then this is a simple step of choosing Ubuntu over Windows at boot. If you’ve done everything correctly you’ll see the UNetbootin bootloader appear. Fixing A Corrupted Windows NTFS Partition First install NTFS-3G by typing this command: sudo fdisk -l

Three Ways to Access the Windows 8 or 10 Boot Options Menu The boot options have been consolidated in Windows 8 and 10 into a single menu, called the “boot options menu,” providing access to repair tools and options for changing Windows startup behavior, such as enabling debugging, booting into safe mode, and launching into a recovery environment. The days of pressing a function key or Esc to interrupt the boot process and get into the BIOS configuration (in UEFI enabled systems) are gone. There are three ways of accessing the new boot options menu in Windows 8 or 10 and we’ll show you how. Hold Down Shift While Choosing Restart Instead of going all the way into the Settings screens, there is a faster way to access the boot options menu. This even works if you haven’t logged into Windows at all, as long as you’re on the login screen and can access the restart menu. Once you’ve done this, instead of fully rebooting, the blue boot options menu displays. You can choose to Refresh your PC, Reset your PC, or access Advanced options. For Windows 8:

How to recover data from a Damaged Drive or Filesystem In the previous article I told you a couple of methods to recover a lost partition. This is the case when you have a fine working hard drive. Now, what if the media concerned(CD, DVD, Hard Disk etc) is damaged. In this article I will tell you how to recover data from such media devices using GNU ddrescue. According to the software's man page – GNU ddrescue is a data recovery tool. Features of GNU ddrescue Ddrescue is fully automatic i.e. you don't have to tell it what to do after every step. If you don't have GNU ddrescue installed you may install it from here or you may install it from your favourite package manager (apt, yum etc), it will be available by the name of gddrescue. The basic syntax for ddrescue is [shredder12]$ ddrescue <options> input_file output_file <logfile> e.g. if you need to recover data from a damaged drive /dev/sda then use it as an input file and since you can't write on the same disk use another as an output file e.g. a USB drive /media/USB/file where,

How to Declutter the Right Click Menu the Easy Way On a fresh installation of Windows, the Right Click Menu (also called the Context Menu) is relatively clean and organized. However, as you install more and more tools onto your system, you may find that it quickly gets cluttered. For example, in the screenshot above, you can see that my own Context Menu is packed with a bunch of shortcuts — many of which I’ve never used and never intend to use. Wouldn’t it be nice to clean it up without having to uninstall the programs? With ShellMenuView and ShellExView, you can! ShellMenuView lists all of the menu items registered on your system and allows you to disable them on an individual basis. Both programs are portable (no installation needed), so you can carry them around on a USB drive for convenience wherever you go. And it’s not just about clutter. Did you know about this?
