    [hard-drive-recovery] sounds more like the click of death problem, whereas [partition-recovery] more like "I deleted my Windows partition when installing Linux"

1 Answer 1


I do not think that [password-recovery] should be combined with [recovery], as we all know that good passwords are not stored in a recoverable manner, and it usually either:

  1. Gets deleted and a new one gets made
  2. User clicks Forgot password, deletes old password and makes a new one

I do agree with the others though

  • Since this site doesn't handle web applications, password recovery might be applicable for getting saved passwords back from web browsers, FTP clients, etc.
