problem regarding partition





schahid
Hello!
I have a problem regarding partition. i was merging two partition with partition magic on 1 disk and unexpectedly the electricity went off. i had a large number of data files on one of the partition i was merging. and you can guess the rest. it ofcourse didnt got merged and i cannot access my data files too... when i re-run the partition magic program, it just hangs up everytime i try to recover the files as it prompts me that it has marked the drive for safety. it doest show in dos or explorer .how can i recover them? please help!

What type of partition was it?

I found this forum post, which had similar circumstances to your situation, it may be of help (however it's on ubuntu...)

What software did you use ?

I would have tried Recover my files.

First, take the hard disk out andput it as a slave on another computer.
Then use Recover My Files from the new computer to check this hard disk for files.


It recovers a lot of files from partitioned and formatted partitions.

Be careful about the power supply when partitioning, formatting or when installing Operating Systems
