I had a recent disk failure but was able to fully recover my data thanks to TI. It was my first recovery and was nice to know it works when needed! However, I've come across an interesting problem which I am not sure is a mistake on my part or a quirk of TI. My previous drive was unpartitioned and I made a full backup of the 38Gb of data on it. The drive itself was 186Gb. I bought a new 320Gb drive which I partitioned, but couldn't get the 38Gb into the first 40Gb partition. TI didn't highlight the drive as it seems there wasn't enough space. I found out why when I reformatted the 320Gb drive and took out the partitions. When I revovered the data, the image wasn't just of the 38Gb of original data, but of the entire 186Gb drive (with all the free space). This is why it wouldn't fit into the 40Gb partition. However to make things worse. My nice big new 320Gb drive was now only reading 186Gb in My Computer, which is the size of the previous drive. In answer to a previous post Ralphie gave me this solution which worked for him. However, I couldn't get beyond stage 4 when using the bootable TI Rescue cd as the drive wouldn't highlight. I got further after booting into windows, but I don't seem to have the extra space reallocated. I'm still reading the same 186Gb. I'm sure I can't be the only person with this problem, and I'd like to hear what other ways people have about this. If I had bought a new hard disk bigger than my backed up data, but smaller than my previous disk, then I assume I would not have been able to make a recovery.
