  2. Help recovering data from unknown partition

    Thank you. Will definitely give it a shot.
  3. I don't know if this topic is relevant here but I desperately need help. Hopefully you guys can help me out........... My computer setup: Pentium II 350 Mhz with 32 + 64 MB memory HD 1: Maxtor 40 Gb partition 1: primary NTFS Windows 2000 (my system) = 6Gb partition 2: primary Fat32 Windows 98 SE (my wife)= 4Gb partition 3: primary Fat 32 Windows 98SE (my Son)= 4Gb partition 4: logical, containing: 500mb fat32:swap file 100mb XOSL 1Gb fat32:photo files 1Gb fat32:data files 8 Gb fat32:downloaded stuff rest empty HD 2: Quantum 3.2 Gb empty space logical partition First problem: While booting to "my wife", system hang (& I heard loud strange Movement of HD) & upon restart HD 2 is gone - also from "my system" & "myson" (even bios only saw one hd). I first thought the aging HD 2 broke ...(but I later on found out that HD 2 is still working perfectly. I disconnected HD 1 & made HD 2 as primary, BIOS immediatelly recognized on boot & I can also install win 2k on empty space. But also this system could not recoqnize my logical partition on HD 1 - that I put as slave now) Second problem: Several days later all 3 systems crashed (completely failed to boot). I can only get to "my son" in dos. What is worst, suddenly logical partition got converted to unknown partition (partition magic reported as one EB type partition) My big concern: HOw to get all my data (photo, data files, & downloaded stuff back)? Please help anyone !! Another question if I delete that EB partition using partition magic floppy, will it destroy all data on it or it just delete the partition so that I can make the logical partition & try to recreate those partitions? Prior to this problem I had different setup with Similar problem: HD1: primary 1 : Win 98 my system primary 2: Win 98 my wife primary 3: empty Logical: 1: XOSL 2: Linux swap 3: Linux 4: Photo file 5: Data file 6: downloaded stuff HD 2: at first : empty space + one logical then it became: 1: primary Win 98 game (my son) 2: logical old stuff Using XOSL I hide both partition of HD 2 from "my system" and "my wife" I also hide all partitions of HD 1 when on "my son" No problem with this setup. Probably due to virus infection, "my son" crashed. I deleted it s0 HD 2 is back to original setup, i.e.: 1: empty 2: logical = old stuff Here comes odd problem: If I unhide logical old stuff both "my system" & "my wife" did not boot (just hang). However Linux has no problem whatsoever reading old stuff. I then ghosted "my system" to empty primary 3 for my son. Strange enough, the new my son had no problem with logical old stuff but instead It cannot read any partition on HD 1 logical partition (Photo, data, & downloaded stuff). I had partition magic installed on "my system" & it read all partitions with no problem but the same partition magic ghosted to "my son" read logical partition on HD 1 as EB partition. 2 months ago I decided to reformat & created the above system & had no problem untill couple of days ago............. Please anyone help me rescuing those valuable data back. Thanks.
