Question about Microsoft Windows XP Professional With Servise Pack 2 (e8503040) for PC

1 Answer

Lost partion I am using a windows (Xp-sp2). I have drives C, d, e and F in my computer and all of them are FAT32 system. I used partion magic to resize my drives C and F so that free space in F could be allotted C drive for increasing the size of C. Partion magic completed all its tasks and when I started the computer it shows modified capacity for all drives but drives d,e,f are shown as not formated (raw disk) in windows. When I see these drives from partion magic it shows the drives as inactive but shows the drive contain data. I am not able to access any of my d, e, and F drives. Please advise me how do i recover my d,e and f drives.

You have to format drives d, e and f. Go to my computer;then right click on the raw drive (d,for this instance); click format, disk capacity and allocation sizes will be shown; select either quick format or full format. You may also compress the disk. Do the same for drives E and F. Formatting may take a few minutes depending on the size of the drive.Hope this helps.

Partition problem


In my humble opinion, the best option is to install a second (blank or larger) drive. Install some recovery software such as "easy recovery pro" or something that will be able to read files from a filesystem that has had the partition table written over. Start with trying to scan using FAT32, and in failing that, try NTFS. Restore the data to the second drive, format the first and partition as required. Copy the data back to the first drive to the partitions that you specified, and erase the data from the second drive. A free option may be pandora recovery, available at http://www.pandorarecovery.com/features/

Partition Problem


Yuou must backup the data of d:\ in another harddrive or volume before doing this backup your data in another volume and then merge the data you can even copy the sectors from partion magic .Data can be recovered by using data recovery softwares.

Partition parameter


From the data you provided, the D drive is deleted and is newly created. But it is not yet formatted. So the data is virtually deleted. Why I said virtually is because, the data is still there on the drive physically and you can recover it using third party tools like OO disk recovery tool. That is why partition magic is still showing data on it.
And it is also obvious that the task which Partition Magic started (splitting drives) is not finished properly. That is why K partition is incorrectly formatted. It is natural that it asks format of D drive because D drive belongs to no file type and it must be of FAT32 or NTFS or other file system.
The solution for your problem is try recovering your data on D drive using disk recovery tools. Then format it using FAT32 or NTFS. Format K drive also in FAT32 or NTFS. Use either partition magic or Computer Management. Since already PM caused problems on your computer, try computer management. It is safe.

RAW file system


RAW file system is typical of an unformatted hard drive and is the default state for most new retail drives because the manufacturers won't know which operating system their customers are going to put on the drive or use it in conjunction with.

Most operating system installations come with utilities to partion and and format new drives see fdisk from MSDOS (specifically versions 5 and higher) And MS Windows 3.1 through 95,98 and ME which all used the FAT32 file system as default and would partition and format during installation. Windows NT similarly would partition and format the drive during install to the NTFS system, as do all versions of Windows XP.

if you are not installing a new OS but setting the drive as a slave to a currently installed drive then you can use a program like Partition Magic or similar to detect the installed drive and partition / format it tou your requirements

Formatting


NTFS if you are using Windows XP since this allows you to have support for larger drivers and faster read and writing capability

FAT system is actually for older drivers that have smaller capacity as well as for thumb drives.

FAT32 is a file system to use if you are planning on having dual OS meaning running Windows 98 and Windows XP at the same time so that you can switch files or share files.

Generally FAT32 is only used now for this reason if that will not be done then NTFS is the best one to go with
