    Personally when I do data recovery, I just simply take the boot drive/affected drive in question and plug it into my system. Run data recovery on it, STD check it, and then copy data back over onto a fresh drive to use back in the PC in question.

    Hi there

    we are speaking here about SURFACE PRO - not "Any System" in general. Most people here can read threads on data backup / recovery / system restore but that IS NOT what this thread is about.

    So please understand the thread before volunteering (in this case irrelevant) information.

    1) Please explain to me if you've ever removed the SSD from inside the Surface Pro - and how did you do it.

    2) We aren't restoring to a PC but trying to BOOT a Surface Pro with a DIFFERENT OS. A surface Pro might have some PC like features but isn't quite like a "True PC" in the classical sense.

    From what I've seen of the device I'm not sure if I would even THINK of attempting to open it.

    Cheers

    Right Jimbo. The question was really about being able to boot a persistant Linux USB flash drive with the Surface pro. But since that was not clear, I did not mention it in the tutorial.
