If the D: drive is a system drive on which windows is installed then its better that if you take out the drive and slave it in another working system and then install any of the above tool on the primary drive of the other system to recovery the data from your slave drive.... as it will not cause the data on your drive to be over-written by the installation of these programs! :)

The situatuion is as follows the D: is the XP which is the primary drive and the C: drive Windows 98.

Now when we boot the mach we see

Windows XP
Window 98

We log into 98.

I have not tried to log into the the XP yet.

So what should I do, I do not what to mess this up.

that means when you open D: drive from Win98 in explorer, its all empty ??
if yes then considering that the XP D: drive was formatted as FAT32 you can install any of the above tool in Win98 and then can try to look at the D: drive for restoring data!!

Win98 cannot read NTFS drive system.... you will be unable to look at this drive then i think =\
you will have to hook this drive as slave in a Win2k\XP system to read the NTFS file system....!!

now MFT is related to NTFS system..... what's going on here.... how did you convert it back to FAT32 ??
i will still ask to hook the drive in a Win2k\XP system and then get GetDataBack for NTFS and try with it to look at the drive to recover the files.....!!
