In a Linux system, files, blocks, directories, sockets and other items are referred by corresponding file descriptors. If your system is reporting errors that the file descriptor is bad, one of possible causes is that file system is corrupt and thus, you require restoring from backup. But if backup is not valid enough to restore complete information, you need to use advanced Linux Data Recovery applications. As an instance, you might encounter the below error message with your Linux based system: “Bad file descriptor” You might receive this error while trying to access a file or while trying to boot the system. Cause Possible reasons for the ‘Bad file descriptor’ error to occur are: Linux systems use a special file, called /dev/null (also called the null device). This file removes all the data that is written to it after reporting that the write process has succes... (more)

Linux Recovery - Tips & Tricks

Partitions created in the hard drive enable you to install different operating systems. A partition table is positioned at the first sector (cylinder 0, head 0 and sector 1, Master Boot Record) of every hard drive. This table contains the information about locations and sizes on the hard drive. Corruption in a partition table can occur due to improper system shutdown, file system corruption, software bugs and more. Once the partition table is corrupted, the user may not be able to boot a particular operating system. Furthermore, the data saved in the unbootable partition becomes ... (more)

Linux Kernel Image Not Found

Linux boot process proceeds in steps. At first, BIOS selects the boot device and loads the boot sector. The boot manager then loads the kernel image in RAM to execute and run the setup code. Kernel initializes all the installed devices, switches the CPU from Real Mode to Protected Mode, loads the compressed kernel and performs further boot process steps. But in case if system cannot find this kernel image, it will fail to boot. In such situations, your system either hangs or displays error messages and eventually, you cannot access your data. Data backup, if present, valid and u... (more)

Stop Error “0x0000C1F5” May Cause Partition Loss in Windows Vista

Kernel is a critical component of a Windows NT-based operating system. It sits between Executive and HAL and offers multiprocessor synchronization, interrupt and thread scheduling and dispatching and execution dispatching and trap handling. This is also in-charge for initializing the device drivers on boot-up, which are required to get the Windows up and running. MS Windows uses kernel-mode drives that allows it to interact with the hardware resources. But in some situations, where some kernel files may get damaged or lost, system may not boot up and all your hard drive partition... (more)

How to Handle File Indexing Corruption in Microsoft Windows 7

Microsoft Dynamics on Ulitzer File Indexing is an allegedly useful feature of Microsoft Windows operating system. It extracts critical information from files on hard disk and creates the “searchable keyword index” that Is used for making the file search more efficient. Using file indexing service, you can easily searching for a phrase, properly or word in a document, even without knowing name of the file that you want. In some situations, the indexing of file may get damaged and may access all your files inaccessible from Windows hard drive partition. In such cases, you need to ... (more)
