Recovering Files from an Unresponsive Hard Disk!

Hello
My laptop's hard disk became unresponsive after a few power outages. I took it out and connected it to another machine through USB as an external drive. It spins and reads. The 4 partitions seem to appear, alas no info on their sizes or contents or on any other of their properties. In fact, it causes the entire machine to hang too.
 
I do not believe the disk has endured any physical damage. I have important files in one of the partitions. The first partition is what Windows creates for its boot management and it's about 100 megabytes in size. The second partition is a Windows 7 partition holding those important files. The third partition is also a Windows 7 partition, probably without any important files, though I'm not sure. The fourth partition is unallocated space, and it's never been formatted.
Thank you !!

HP 15-ba053nr laptop

Hello
uses the xserver-xorg-video-amdgpu package, not available in debian jessie, but available in stretch. Currently running arch though for best compatibility.
 
- backlight needs special kernel parameters.
----- " acpi=force acpi_backlight=vendor "
And the usual echo ### > /sys/class/backlight/amdgpu_b10/brightness
where ### is 0 - 255 changes the brightness of the LCD, 0 being off
xbacklight doesn't seem to recognize the device, although same issue going from debian jessie to stretch for my hp stream 11.
The /sys/class/... is root:root by default, so change that after boot if you want the user to use it, otherwise only as root does it work.
 
Thank you !!

Which scanner to buy

Hello
I have an old Epson 2450 Perfection scanner that did a decent job of scanning 35mm color slides. On Windows. But I don't have a Windows box anymore and don't want one.
 
On Linux, with XSane and other such programs that scanner does a good job in flatbed mode but it fails to turn on the backlight when in "transparency" mode. So for transparencies it doesn't work at all.
 
I bought VueScan and that doesn't work in transparency mode either.
 
Wine dies trying to startup various twain dot exe drivers from Epson.
 
I'm ok with that. It's a 15 year old scanner. I'm happy to buy a new one but I want a scanner that will do 35mm slides, from Mint Cinnamon Linux. Actually I don't care about linux distribution.
 
I just want a scanner that works, and I don't have a Windoze box anymore. 
 
Any suggestions?

Password App

Hello
 
In view of the Yahoo hack (i have an old defunct account), I was thinking of resetting password for the zillion logins I have. There are options to use a password tool which can generate random passwords.
 
Which one would be the right option considering, access would be needed on desktop (Chrome), mobile phones (apps, chrome, safari)
 
OnePass is probably the most popular one, but they were hacked recently. Didn't Google have something similar?
 
 
Thank you !!

Music Streaming Service

Hello
 
Well with the news that pandora is coming out (finally) with its premium streaming service I still feel lost as ever. I have a student Apple Music and Spotify through a friends family account. I have tried to get into Apple Music but it just doesn't seem to get my tastes no matter how hard I've tried. If I like a tribe called quests old albums I get lil Wayne recommendations. With Spotify I haven't had the same success people have with their discovery lists. It's very hit or miss.
 
Maybe I'm doing something wrong? What music service do a you use and why? Anyone have the same issues of not feeling like a service "gets them" but figured out how to fix it?
 
 
 
 
Thank you !!

Spotify app is unintuitive garbage.

Hello
 
 I don't want to hide it, I want to remove it. Current shuffle (wtf is a fucking shuffle and why do you subject me to it?) song still plays, I swipe right then I swipe left nothing happens, I long press the song nothing happens, Ah look a TRIPLE DOT on the song! If I press it then a menu opens where there must be an option to stop and remove the current "shuffle" or whatever the fuck it is. Nope.
 
Oh and the "you discovered a premium feature" BS. If everything is behind the paywall then having a pointless unusable "freemium" app is just fucking with the consumer, just make it a one week trial out of the gate if you want people to "experience the app".
 
Thank you !!
