Hard Disk Partition
Posted on 2003-10-26
I have a very peculiar problem. It started with my hard disk developing some bad sectors and has now resulted in my Hard Disk Partition being locked. The size of the Hard Disk partition is about 3 GB and it had about 1 GB free when the problem occured. At present the system is unable to write to the Hard Disk, it is only able to read from it and the partition shows up to have a 0 bytes size ! The second Partition is working absolutely fine !
The main problem is that i have all my Windows system files and a lot of sensitive data on the HDD partition and I dont want to reinstall it on another HDD.
If you can, I would be very grateful for any help that you can provide.
