We have a sony laptop that would not boot up.  We removed the harddrive and put it into an external enclosure.  The original harddrive was partitioned into 2 parts.  When we look in windows explorer at the external enclosure, we can see F:\ and G:\ and we can see all the files on G:\.  However when we try to view the files on F:\ we get the error message "error performing inpage operation".  When I go to disk management, I see the following information for F:\:
Layout: Partition
Type: Basic
File System: (Blank)
Status: Healthy (Active)
Capacity 13.97 GB
Free Space 13.97 GB
% Free: 100%

On the laptop, we tried to use C:\ for programs and D:\ for data.  It was a 60 GB harddrive.  G:\ is showing 36.91 GB capacity so my guess is it was 40 GB for D: and 20 GB for C:\
