    Hi
    is there a way yo discover a hidden partition?

    i mean it's enough use a boot disk with partition magic 8 or paragon partition or acroni disk director , to see the hidden partitions?

    i mean it's enough load partition magic and i can see hidden partitions
    or should i do a small procedure?

    this because i wanted to give a try to Farstone DriveClone Pro , and during the install it make a partition without ask


    thanks

    First uninstall Farstone drive clone,may that will recover the partition.
    Then use Acronis Disk Director Suite to find out the partition present ,try to recover it.If it does not find the partition.

    U may have try Active partition recovery.Most probably u will recover the partition, unless the data has been wiped or overwritten.

    I have a hidden partition, and standard Windows XP Disk Management utility sees the hidden partition and correctly reports the size and status (healthy) - but can not modify it.

    For partition manipulation, I use and recommend Paragon disk management utilities. For partition management, you can create, shrink, expand, merge, wipe, format, image, image-recover, etc. I'm using Paragon HD Manager 2009 suite, and highly recommend it.

    Hope this helps!

    Based on my own experience with this app, I'd recommend you consider Paragon Hard Disk Manager 2009 Suite. It provides a rich combination of partition-management functions with image backup/restore functions.

    It provides two separate boot CD versions:
    - Linux/DOS version.
    - WIN PE version.

    All features of the two apps you mention are enrolled in this suite.

    When I installed this app, my drive had left-over protected backup/restore partition from previous Acronis TI10. I had complete control of that partition.

    Hope this helps!
