I am working on trying to recover some data from a hard drive (FAT32
formatted). The drive can be mounted OK (mounted in a USB external
drive housing), but the data is not accessible. When I do an ls -al,
I get this back:

==============================
/media/usbdrive> ls -al
total 32
drwxrwxrwx 5 root root 16384 2008-06-21 17:28 ./
drwxrwxrwx 5 root root 16384 1970-01-01 01:00 ../
?--------- ? ? ? ? ? Backup
?--------- ? ? ? ? ? Vids_1992
?--------- ? ? ? ? ? Photos_1992
==============================

So... something is seriously wrong... obviously... but the question
is... is there any hope? Does anyone know any method, or tools
(Linux, Windows, whatever) that can be used to recover at least some
of the data?

Hi,

- not long ago this was discussed on this list. I myself did a recovery of an erased USB(fat) stick some time ago. I think I used this:

http://www.pcinspector.de/file_recovery/uk/welcome.htm
or
http://www.rfc1149.net/devel/recoverjpeg
or
http://www.remote-exploit.org/backtrack.html

And Ubuntu is supposed to have a thing called Magicrescue...

Hope these links are of help.
