host for a drive
Posted on 1998-04-12
I originally have a Western Digital Caviar Drive 31200 which is a 1.2 GB drive. This drive is not partitioned but it has an Edrive letter that say "host for drive C. I donnot understand how this drive appeared this way with a host drive letter E and occupying about 300MB of disk space.
One day I bought a microsoft software called,"Backoffice for Small Business", I try to browse around the CD and for some reason the installation started so I terminated the installation immediately. This is when the problem started. I can no longer boot on my system since it is looking for a Windows NT file which is not in the Hard disk.
To bypass this problem, I took out an old hard disk which has 500MB capacity and tried to make it my boot drive. and installed the problem drive as a slave drive. When I did this, I can not enter into the slave drive at Dos or windows but it is a slave drive in the setup.
I removed the 500 MB disk and reinstalled the problem drive,this time I can no longer see the data in drive C anymore but see data that was in drive E and the drive C directory now say "host for C drive". I know the old data is still there but how can I get it is the big question.
