Partition data lost using fixmbr
Posted on 2004-10-12
As you see from the title, I had problems on my HDD which had system files on the primary partition and data on the extended partition.
As a last resort to get the drive to boot, I ran Fixmbr without realising that the partition data would be lost.
I have managed to recover part of the data with Ontrack's easyrecovery but the directory structure is lost, along with the filenames and, it seems, some of the files.
There is a lot of data and it will take weeks to go through it all and rename the files. In addition, certain time-sensitive files were held in directories named as dates. These dates were the only references to the time-frame of the files and I need to recover the directory names if at all possible.
I have not carried out any operations on the drive other than running easyrecovery with the raw data recovery option.
I have seen sirbounty's list of recovery progs but I get the impression from opinions expressed on this site that I have used the best of the bunch already.
Can you help, please?
