    My PC died, so I stuck the drive in as a slave in my new PC to access old data. The main partition was (AFAIK) NTFS, with some smaller FAT/FAT32 partitions.

    The main partition does not show up under Windows. Disk Director says under General that the partition is a type 0x7 (NTFS, HPFS), with no File System. Under File System, it reports that the file system has an invalid format.

    I had used TrueImage to clone this drive just a day before (as I thought the disk may be failing), and both disks show the same error - even though the PC appeared to work normally (until the total crash) with both old + new disks.

    Any thoughts on how to restore the partition would be appreciated.
