    How to get data off of bad drive?

    A friend of mine had a bad drive which had ext2 on it. When he boots up, it says "bad super block" or something similar. Since I do not have physical access to the machine which is sitting at South Carolina, I'm guessing the file system is going bad. Is there anyway I can mount it via RAW and retrieve data? Any suggestions?

    TIA

    My crime is that of curiosity. My crime is that of judging people by what they say and think, not what they look like. My crime is that of outsmarting you, something that you will never forgive.
