The second partition of my HDD (which I store all my data!!) failed .  The primary partition seems OK.  I can still boot the machine and run all the application. Is it possible to rescue my data files from the damaged partition.HELP !

First what OS do you use? Second can you see your partition with fdisk and what are the parameters of this partition?
Pls give more info.

terryho,

referring to rbr's comment:
at a Dos prompt, type FDISK /STATUS...please post shown info here.

If fdisk does not show you any partitions on the drive, then the partitions have been deleted.
Get Norton Disk Doctor, (NDD.EXE) and run the DOS based NDD. This will automatically attempt to recover lost partitions. (Make an UNDO DISK !)  When this is done, reboot, and check the drive for partitions again.

Regards

These utilities are very good and will probably accomplish what you are trying to do.  However, I use DrivePro 3.0, and extremely powerful utility that will enable you to recover ANYTHING!

Check out the question, (and answer I gave), on the same type of problem:
