post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I merged two of my paritions using parition magic 7.0 , the program then put the data of one of the paritions into the other partition as a folder, but now i cant access the data of the other partition, it says that is in accessible.
What can i do about it ?
Thanks for any help in advance .

If it "merged the partition" then you should be able to use an unmerge and fix the associated data.

If it moved the data then combines the partition you have corrupted data on your hands.

If you have recent backups I would revert to them and get all your data just in case something got corrupted.

BTW, I have heard of this before and it seems to be a standard thing with PM if you combine partitions with data on them the data comes out worse for the operation on the second partition you are trying to rejoin.

I'll ask my buddy who uses it ALOT tommorow.
