Im having a 160Gb Seagate Hdd and a 400Gb Hitachi Hdd with 3
partitions each. I had Vista installed on the Seagate hdd while
there was no OS on the other hdd. Something happened and my
Seagate hdd stopped booting suddenly. So I was left without an OS.
On trying to use the Vista Recovery CD, the Seagate Hdd was shown
as one single partition as RAW and when I tried to open the
partition, the recovery asked me if I would like to format the
drive. I could not do that since theres a lot of valuable data on
So I used Fedora Linux CD and emptied the contents of one of the
400gb hdd onto another partition to have an empty partition on
that hdd and then I installed Vista on that hdd.
So, I was left with the 400gb hdd with Vista and my old 160gb hdd
which wasnt accessible no matter what I tried. It just shows as
one drive which is actually 3 drives..
I used GetDataBack software on the new hdd to get my data from the
old hdd and I noticed that the software actually managed to read
my hard disk since it detected a lot of my files. I tried to
recover them onto the safe hard disk but none of them work. Jpgs,
avi, exe,....none of them open in their respectible softwares.
But now I want to repair my Seagate hdd coz a lot of my software
settings were saved in that hdd which would be lost now. Im still
unsure of what really happened but I believe that there would be a
work around for this.
Please help, people.
