I am in possession of a windows harddrive that was recently infected and as a new user to Linux, I wish to salvage as much data as possible from the harddrive. A few questions though.
- Can the viruses affect my Linux installation in any way?
- What is the best way to salvage as much information as possible whilst ensuring the files I am attempting to save are not infected and that do not infect my installation of Linux?
Appreciate any other advise and tips.
