Win95 partition is corrupt and fdisk won't work!
Posted on 1997-05-14
I've got a WD 1.6 GB hard drive partitioned in three-> c, d, and e, all of which are approximately 500 megs big. Up until last week, c and d were both running fine in Win95, and e was running fine in Linux. Well I decided to get rid of the Linux partition using Linux's nifty "self-destruct" feature. ie. I used Linux's fdisk to make what I thought would be a nice Win95 partition. That partition (my e: drive), under Win95, has given me no end of grief. Every other day, the partition becomes inaccessible or corrupt, and I'm forced to reformat it again in Win95. My fdisk in Win95 doesn't want to work, and my Dos fdisk won't work either (weird). I'm thinking the only way to get my third partition (my e: drive) to work fine is to remove it and then create it again using a Win95 version of fdisk. Can someone think of any other solutions or where i can obtain a working Win95 fdisk on the net?
