I'm working with a disk that has been quick formatted or at least that the format was initiated on. The files are not visible, but I have recovered with a file recovery utility what appear to be all of the files from the drive including the Windows 7 OS files and metafiles. I've recovered these files to another hard drive (with the exception of the metafiles) in the hopes of transferring them plus the metafiles back to the original drive after formatting it in the hopes of getting a bootable drive out of it. I realize that, because of permission issues, I'd probably have to use a Knoppix disk to transfer the metafiles that are on a flash drive now.
Is this possible to do, and, if so, how?
