how to recover data on a scsi disk following boot crash?
Posted on 2003-03-04
I have this atlas IV scsi disk which used to be a c:
drive. Last week following a series of blue screens
I got boot error stating that the loader could not locate
the os (or something to that effect).
I guess that during one of the blue screen somehow the
boot, partition or format information on the disk was
Now I have installed a new c: drive which is IDE but I
kept the "old" scsi drives. Now I have 3 drives plugged in.
One IDE upon which I boot and 2 scsi...
But only one of which is recognized by disk admin utility
of windows 2000. Of course it is NOT the scsi disk I want.

one which is NOT recognized by windows 2000... Yet when
I enter the adaptec AHA-2940 config utility I see that
there is indeed 2 scsi disk, and the size information is
This leads me to conclude that maybe if I could rewrite
the old partition information over the lost scsi drive
maybe I could see my data again ???
So in desperation I turn to you. Is there any way to
recover the data on the disk (which was NTFS by the way)???
Any miracle software? Any solution? Any hope at all?
