  1. I am trying to ascertain in your product is appropriate to my situation prior to purchase. I hope to recover or partially rebuild a lost FAT table. The FAT table was lost when I resized a partition with Partition magic. No error s were reported & 99%+ of the files in the partition are intact but the file system now reports as 'RAW'. I have a printout of the drive/partition geometry, FAT size, address, etc before the changes, should that be helpful (manual editing?). I purchased another product (easy recovery) but due to drive fragmentation, many of the recovered files are truncated. Is there a reasonable chance of success of recovering or rebuilding a FAT with Acronis in this type of situation?
     
  2. On closer examination it appears that the FAT tables are okay. It is the boot block that seems to be corrupt and preventing access to the file system.
