I've  seen several  programs that  rescue  primary partitions  but what  I'm
really interested in is a program that rescues logical ones too (those are a
linked list on disk)
I've done this by hand with a  disk editor once, repairing the partitions by
writing bytes on disk in the right places, and it took many hours.
