ChecklistsChecklists, which outline specific data recovery procedures. Checklists do not
provide any "how to" information. Understanding and following them requires
substantial experience with filesystem structures, manual disk editing, and
data recovery in general. However, they outline some "required minimum of
effort" when performing a particular task and ensure that you are not going to
miss some routine (yet important) step. It is possible (and common) to add
some extra steps when going through the checklist. On the other hand, skipping
part of the checklist must be backed up with a significant reason.
