While working on a LINUX based computer system, sometimes, at the start-up or during the shut down, the system suddenly starts behaving abnormally. In the due course, an error message gets flashed on the screen and the system hangs. As all your data lying with the hard drive of the troubled system remains inaccessible, you have to look for any LINUX data recovery software to recover them back.
The system processes that are related to the booting process and the shut-down process have been terminated and the error message pops up on the screen leaving the system hanging at that point. The error message that gets flashed on the screen can be read as below:
"Can't Locate Module "
The error is quite clear and it is due to the unavailability of modules to the files modprobe, insmod or rmmod. The result is that the required system files could not be accessed by the system and hence, failed to boot or shut down. There is a fare chance of possibility that the discussed system files are corrupted and the reason may be sudden or unsystematic shut down, virus attack, file system corruption etc.
Modprobe is a system file which looks in the module directory "/lib/modules/uname -r" and adds or removes the modules intelligently. Insmod is meant for taking modules from the standard input and inserts them in the Linux kernel. The problem occurs when insmod tries to link the modules inside the Linux kernel. Rmmod works to upload the modules that can be loaded from the running Linux kernel, with certain yardstick, such as currently, neither the modules are in use nor they are referred by any other.
In the above discussed problematic situation, in order to resolve the issue, you have to format the partition and install the operating system once again. Formatting will erase the data from the drive and you have to restore it from the previously taken backup. However, if some data is yet to be backed up, it is best suggested to use Linux data recovery to recover back all your lost or inaccessible data as a whole without taking much risk.
LINUX recovery utilities are completely risk free and the data is never harmed in the course of their recovery process. Stellar Phoenix Linux Data Recovery is a trusted data recovery utility that recovers lost, deleted, formatted or inaccessible data from almost all LINUX based partitions. Moreover, the software has an instruction based GUI and is compatible with all available flavors of LINUX.
