Partion problem? don't know if ocn can help...

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Allright long story short, i was reinstalling vista on my temporary machine till BD comes out, since it was being a POS and i happend to have a vista key around, and it was designed for vista, yada yada yada yada

I left a 2TB WD Green drive plugged in during the reinstall that happens to have alot of stuff on it that i don't want to lose, after the reinstall was complete i went to start installing drivers, and guess what, that 2tb drive is now 'raw' Any ideas on how to fix? because all the images for my games, movies, game screenshots, written works and what have you, are kinda on there.

Sounds like it got formatted, because from raw to normal will require a format anyway. Sorry

whats worse, is i have Easus partition master running, and it says the drive is fine, it can see the volume label, how much of it is used, how much free space, and even some of the directorys there, and a chkdsk says the file system is NTFS

Please could you list everything storage related about your machine, I may be able to help.

Please list:

What controllers your motherboard uses,
What controllers you're using,
What RPM the HDD is,
How many partitions you have,
How much space those partitions take up,
What your BIOS configuration is with regards to the HDD's,
Do you still have your 100mb system reserved partition?

You say that it's classed as RAW data now, is that what the program is saying?

I think what may have happened is, the files are read only, and you may not have administrative rights to that information, did you have any encrypted files? A password on your old install?

Anyway, you could try giving it permission, go to that partition, right click, go to properties, go to security, and click edit, then allow for Full Control. There should also be an option for enabling/disabling read-only. It's usually a check box.

If these quick fixes don't work, it's something more serious, if I can't help you, I may be able to ask my friend who can get data off almost any HDD, he'll surely know. He's not an OCN'er, so I'd have to make a call! Let me know if it's sorted !
