Norton Ghost Restore also removed my extended partition
Posted on 2004-04-02
My Hdd was partitioned into 2 - Primary Fat32 and extended/logical Fat32
I used a "system restore pack" based on Norton Ghost 5.1c - fully expecting it to restore the c: drive partition only. (My data backup was in the D: drive in the extended logical partition)
After the restore, the drive has reverted to a single partition and my data has gone.
Does anyone have an opinion about whether the data might be recoverable? Do you know if Ghost simply overwrites the partition table or does it rewrite all sectors of the drive?
ANY SUGGESTIONS for recovery software to try? Any helpful advice gratefully received!!!!
