In Reply to: XP Lost A Harddrive! posted by Jeff on January 19, 2002 at 08:37:41:

: I have an 8 gig primary master harddrive and an 20 gig secondary master harddrive. I Recently reformatted my C drive, installed Windows 98, then immediately installed XP on top ( since I knew of no way to install XP without DOS.) When I did, XP lost my second harddrive, which I had in 3 partitions. I can see the secondary master drive in disc manager: it shows me a 20 gig drive with only one of my partitions (6.3 gig). However, I can not access this harddrive under "my computer"- it isn't shown there! In disc manager, both drives show up in FAT32. What can I do to get XP to let me access all of my saved files on this second drive?! Please help!
: Thank you!

I lost my partitions recently,

Luckly i had Norton Utills on, booted up in Dos navigated to the Norton folder and used an undocumented switch.

NDD /rebuild

This worked a dream and found all partitions.

Or you could try fdisk.

Command used to rewrite the Master Boot Record.

Recreate Master Boot Record on specified disk. Performs the same functions as FDISK /MBR except can be used on other disk drives

Have a look at:
recovery tools, problems and drives
scroll down to RECOVER download Windows9x MERC.ZIP

TRY resqpro Download

Hope this can help you
