Hard Drive Recovery HELP!
Posted on 1999-01-26
I have a 6.4GB Drive & a 1.7 GB Drive. The Boot drive Is the 6.4. It has Win98 running FAT32 and the 1.7 is Fat32.
The partition on the 6.4 was deleted. Booted with a Win98 start up disk and ran FDISK. It shows the partion as active.
The machine does not boot W/O bootdisk. When it is booted with the bootdisk and drive C: is accesed an invalid media error comes up. Now before the C: drive partition was deleted the data was put onto D: drive (and there is some REALLY important stuff on there). D: drive was formated with this data on it but not overwritten.
What is my best option here? If I can, should/could I recover the data from C: or D:
I tried downloading some Disk utility software but all of it
will only let me view the disk contents and not copy it.it(trialware).
Is there any freeware or other utilities I can use??
Pleaz give some help & advice on this.
