I would like to merge recovery into data-recovery.
A good ~90% (at a glance) of the ~500 questions tagged recovery are about data-recovery.
The other ~10% are about things like password-recovery or recovery-mode.
Obviously if you think this is a silly idea, make it known quickly, but failing that, I would appreciate some help scanning through the current recovery questions to make sure questions that aren't about data-recovery have appropriate tags before the merge.
I don't expect (or want) anybody to go through 500 questions but there is a lot of low-hanging fruit that the search function makes easy to identify. You still need to check (because not all of these will apply).
- 51 questions that have "password" in them. Probably need the password-recovery tag instead.
- 73 questions that have "recovery" and "mode" in them. Probably a mis-tag.
There are probably other searches that identify good candidates. Add them to the list.
And again, unless it desperately needs other editing, if it's about data recovery, just leave it.
The tag merge will deal with these without bumping them up to the front page.
First question I looked at from the second list was about recovery partitions (eg bootable install media that OEMs stick on their disks). I'm not sure how we tag those.
