hello... the history of my problem is recorded here...
basically, i ruined my partition table ( i think ) and now i must find software to help me un-do what bootMagic did to it.
please see PartitionMagic screen shot here.
the NTFS drive (drive E in the pic) should only be one partition. there is 87.xx gigs of data that. it is crucial that i recover this data.
A nice program called Virtual Lab is able to see all of my directories and files, just the way i left them, but i do not have the $535 that it will cost to proceed w/ their recovery process.
does anyone have advice on how i might manually recover my partition table?
i have several data recovery/ system utilities. any suggestion is appreciated.
