Windows Explorer sees partition, but cannot access.
Posted on 2005-04-28
My problem is this:
I was accessing my D partition, before I reformatted to get a few pieces of infomation off of it.
After I reformat, I notice the drive shows up in explorer but the "filesystem" is left as RAW.
I cannot access it through windows.
BUT I can see ALL of my files through Active Directory Recovery ( But it isn't free )
I have tried fixmbr but it doesn't work.
I have tried PC Inspector, and am currently scanning the drive now. Unfortunately, the filenames end up being something like sector_345345345file.jpg or whatever.
Does anyone know what else I could do to make explorer show my NTFS drive?
Below is a copy of diskpart:
DISKPART> list volume
Volume ### Ltr Label Fs Type Size Status Info
---------- --- ----------- ----- ---------- ------- --------- --------
Volume 0 E BartPE CDFS DVD-ROM 289 MB
Volume 1 C NTFS Partition 128 GB Healthy System
Volume 2 D Partition 105 GB Healthy
Volume 3 F Downloads NTFS Partition 75 GB Healthy
Volume 4 G Others NTFS Partition 75 GB Healthy
Volume 5 H NTFS Partition 149 GB Healthy
As you can see, partition D also shows up in DiskPart, but does NOT show up ( with size ) in explorer. and it doesn't have a FS.
Any help is greatful.
