I have a RPi B that I haven't used for a while, with a Citadel e-mail server and some of my e-mails on the SD card. The card has bad blocks now that prevent RPi from booting.

Supposing that there no part of the e-mail database in those bad sectors, how can I rescue my e-mails from that card?


Mount the card on another Linux machine and copy the files to a safe place.

  • Thanks, that's a first step. Do you know where Citadel keeps it's e-mail database? – Anton Lyubinin Jan 26 '17 at 17:48
  • No, it depends on how it was installed. But there's documentation on the net. Google! – jogco Jan 27 '17 at 8:16
  • Thank a lot! Of course I googled, not sure why I could not find that page. – Anton Lyubinin Jan 29 '17 at 5:02
  • It didn't show up in the list of google hits, but I dug around on the Citadel documentation site and found it. – jogco Jan 31 '17 at 12:41
