I used PartitionMagic to create a new partition in the free space I thought i had at the end of my hard drive.  When I rebooted, I found that my primary c: partition had been truncated and cleared, and my computer would no longer boot XP Pro.  When I went to recover the data, I used Acronis Partition Recovery and it told me that I had a corrupt block bitmap, but i found that all of my files were still intact.  I was wondering how I would be able to fix this corrupt block bitmap without writing the other files on my hard drive.

Have you tried running chkdsk from the Recovery Console?
