testdisk is what you're after.

You can install testdisk in a LiveUSB session
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install testdisk
then instructions to get it to find lost partitions can be found here

Software & Applications / Re: Right-Click Menu Cluttered
« Last post by kataclysm on Today at 05:22:43 pm »
No, I tried the Reset to System Defaults and I still have 23 options (counted 25 yesterday, so it might have eliminated 2). The "programs" that appear in the right-click menu are not even proper programs--for instance, Spider Solitaire, which is not an installed program but just a link to an online game that seems to have been preincluded with Peppermint. LibreOffice Writer offers to open the HTML, which makes a bit more sense, but I'm never going to use LibreOffice to edit an HTML, so given manual control over the list, I would remove LibreOffice. Just an example.

Advanced Topics / restoring "deleted" Linux partition and swap file
« Last post by davexnet on Today at 04:36:43 pm »
Hi all,
I suffered some kind of "glitch" while using my  PC, the screen froze and filled with a strange diagonal pattern.
I had to clear CMOS and remove the motherboard battery before I could even get the PC to POST again.

When I attempted to boot my Linux boot loader (Grub) I get the grub-rescue > prompt.
Trying to boot Windows just a black screen.  To cut a long story short I used a rescue disk to save
and review the master boot record.  It had been partially overwritten with garbage, including the
partition table unfortunately.

Here's an image showing my disk layout.  AT the end of disk1 is 49GB of unallocated space,
that's where my Peppermint Linux partition + swap are supposed to be.  This drive also contains the Windows 10
boot loader.  I have grub installed on disk 0

All those Windows partitions were also lost but a program run from Windows on another PC
(Easeus Partiton Master) after connecting this drive successfully found them and restored the partition table.
Unfortunately this program did not find the Linux partitions.

I'm wondering if there are any recommendations of anything else to try that might be able
to restore the Linux partitions in a similar way?  I have tried Testdisk which actually does find them
but i'm concerned about some reported overlapping of partitons that I have not yet attempted using it.

I have created the Knoppix DVD 8.1. but I have not found any useful tools.
Any suggestions appreciated

Code: [Select]
lspci -vnn | grep -i net
and

If you right-click on an html file, then select

Open With > Other Application

Then click the "Reset to system defaults" button.

does that get rid of all the spurious entries in the right-click context menu ?
