Lost connection with Harddrive and can't find the files after reconnection
Posted on 2006-03-27
I've got a problem with a Server of mine. I've got Windows 2000 server installed and got two drives. C and E. C contains the windows OS and E contains some important data. Unfortunatly, this morning the E: drive suddenly was unaccessable for the users of the domain. I've looked with computer management to see what has happend to the drive and weard enough the drive didn't have a Drive letter anymore. I could access the drive as well.
When i reactivated the Drive letter i got the question if i wanted to format the drive. I've cancelled it ofcourse because i really need the data. Is there anyway how i can get the information back from the drive? And...i found that the mirror drive i've installed suddenly is unavailable tot the system. Don't know how that's came...but the fact is that i'm unable to recover my data from this harddisk as well...
I found some other information. While trying to checkdisk the drive i get the message that the drive is RAW instead of NTFS. Is there any tool or commandline i can use to reactivate the disk...
