ZERO ASSUMPTION RECOVERY
Both will freely show what they can get back.
Just wondering. Are these precious enough to backup?
I have 2 IDE hard drives in my system: 80GB, 250GB.
The 80GB is for my C: drive, the 250GB is partitioned into two sections.
I reinstalled XP Pro today (SP2) and noticed the 250GB drive shows up as D:. When I click on it, Windows tells me the drive isn't formatted and asks if I want it to format. Seeing as how it holds tons of precious files, I obviously don't want it formatted.
Anyway, in the computer Management window, I can see both partitions. D: shows up as Healthy and Active, where was the other partition is "Unallocated". However, neither parition can be accessed through Windows.
I'm currently running OnTrack EasyRecovery, which sees all my files, but it will take forever to recover them, since I don't have enough room on C: and will thus have to burn them to DVD and delete them, about 60GB at a time.
Does anybody have a suggestion as to how I can get XP to recognize these partitions without going about it the long way, as I'm doing now?
