Toshiba Recovery Emulation?

NexS
Hi Folks,
Long time no see.

I've been meaning to research this for a while now, but when I got around to it I couldn't form my Quoogle (google search query) well enough to get any decent hits.

Basically, I have an older toshiba satellite (a100 or 200 or something) laptop whose video adapter on the board has carked it. I had made a recovery disk prior to the decease and was wondering if anyone has come across an emulator of sorts, or an explorer that I could use to access files from the recovery disks?

ANy ideas would be appreciated.

Go Team!! [_]3

    I can't do that because the files aren't currently on the hard drive. and I need to restore from the recovery dvds to get the files I want.
    I guess i forgot to mention that the drive was formatted for performance before it died.

    Kind of ironic now that I think about it!

    Is everything dumped into one large file? If so, what type? (wim?)

    I guess the question is "What sort of recovery disks are these? What application made them?"

    They're the Toshiba recovery wizard disks. The laptop has a recovery partition that's used for creating and restoring from these recovery disks.

    But that's a very good point - I haven't actually plugged the disks in to see if i can read them. I'll give that a go when I get home from work.

    Thanks Sean!
