    While trying to resize my Vista Home Basic hard drive's (2) existing partitions (NTFS), The resize completed successfully for my bootable partition ("C") but I've received a red "C" in the 2nd partition (data). This partition is now unviewable by Windows.

    Spinrite 6.0 found no errors. Windows command "chkdsk d: /r" aborted and reports that there's a corrupt "master file table" when run on my 2nd partition (data) but was completed successfully on the boot partition ("C").

    Is there any suggestions you might have on restoring/recovering the MFT or retrieval of the data off the partition?

    Any insight would be greatly appreciated,

    Hello ballen,

    Thank you for choosing Acronis Disk Director Suite 10.0

    Please accept our apologies for the delay with the response.

    Corrupted MFT can be recovered by running Checkdisk as you did.

    - Go to the Command Prompt (Start -> Run -> cmd)
    - Enter the command: "chkdsk DISK: /r"
    where DISK is the partition letter you need to check. Please note, that
    checking the C: drive may require you to reboot the machine.

    If this does not help, Please create Acronis Report as it is described in Acronis Help Post. And attach to your message in this thread.

    Thank you.
