    Dear you,
    During the operation where I tried to convert one of my partitions from FAT32 to NFTS, power failure happened. It's a large external hard disk, 1T, and I can't find dirs and files on it:'( . How can I get my data from the partition? Is there any opportunity to resume the converting operation?

    Thanks

    Victor

    Please take a look at this thread covering a similar situation:

    You will likely need to use a data recovery tool to recovery the lost files. There is no way to resume the conversion operation, also you should NOT run chkdsk(with the /f or /r options, without options is ok) on the drive, because it will not properly detect the file system and could cause further corruption of the data.

    Thanks for your kind reply.
    Well, will chkdsk without options work well, and could I retrieve my data on the portable external hard disk ( WESTERN DIGITAL)?

    I found this---"Power interruptions while running a Partition Manager operation"

    But, I dont know how to perform it and am not sure whether it will work well?
