how to recover FAT
Posted on 1998-09-03
I have a Conner FP1060S (1GB, SCSI).
Since the system files (DOS6.22) have been deleted, I connected a IDE HD to the machine and tried to transfer sytem files to this SCSI HD to be able to boot from it.
Unfortunately, all data is lost now !
Dunno if FAT is destroyed...have tried to repair it with Norton Utilities, but told me that the FAT cannot be recovered.
Is there any possibility to use DiskEditor and edit the HD entries manually ?
Any further suggestions what to do ?
- there was just one partition on this HD (1,08GB) with approx. 800MB data...important data !
- when I tried to copy the system files from the IDE HD to the SCSI HD (with SYS) system told me that media is not recognized.
From this moment on, FDSIK told me that the file system is "unknown" (system was FAT16 before)
PLEASE DO NOT POST AN ANSWER UNTIL I ADVICE SOMEBODY TO POST HIS COMMENT AS THE ANSWER !!!
