Unknown Partition Type Windows XP
Posted on 2010-08-19
I have an urgent issue. Power failure corrupted my boot partition. I was originally getting a "boot, retry, ignore" error. Booted into the recovery console. Could not not see any files on the C:\ drive, so I ran a chkdsk /r. It got to 26% complete, and then I got an unrecognizable disk error. I booted up with ERD commander, and I can see the disk in disk manaager, but it says the partition is active and healthy, although it is an unknown type. I can't see any files on the disk, and explorer in ERD says the disk is 0 bytes. I have a lot of data that is not backed up on this partition. Any ideas/ help would be greatly appreciated!
