Got a 160GB drive, on one partition of 50GB(not the boot partition) it has become unreadable.  Any utilities to help me recover data?  That doesn't cost too much?

You can try the free software "GetDataBack for NTFS ", if you have NTFS, or " GetDataBack for FAT " if you have FAT!

Both of them are free from " http://www.runtime.org/gdb.htm "

Hope  I helped you out,

Best Regards

You can also try diagnostic software supplied by your hard drive manufacturer (if the problem is bad sectors, not file system corruption only).

Get Back Data For NTFS gave me a little data and the European file recovery would only crash my system.  Thanks for the responses.
