Originally, I had a 120gb IBM hard drive portioned into 3 NTFS partitions C:\ E:\ & F:\. I used Acronis’ Partition Expert to create the partitions. The other day I tried to repair winxp and that’s when the problems began. Before I continue, The C:\ was originally 65gb with 25gb free. I had to repartition this drive and make it Primary - Active, thus giving me a new C:\ of 20gb and a new partition H:\ of 45gb (Old system files). Now the original C:\ (Now H:\) formatted NTFS contains all my installed programs including Windows XP. Windows would neither repair nor start, so I installed WinXP on the new partition (new C:\ of 20gb) and now the Local Disks E: F: & H: CANNOT be accessed. When I click on these I get; “drive:\ is not accessible. Access is denied”. Effectively, I have TWO Primary Partitions on the same disk. Is this a problem? I also have separate 20gb hard drive partitioned into 2 X 10gb, installed and formatted in FAT32, but there are no problems accessing these disks Using Disk Management of the Microsoft Management Console shows the Status of all disks to be Healthy and gives me the capacity and free space figures. But if I right click --> Properties on either E: F: or H: I get: Type: Local Disk File System: RAW Used Space: 0 bytes Free Space: 0 bytes Capacity: 0 bytes Does anybody know what’s happened here – I am stumped, and there’s a lot of files on them drives that I need. Any help or suggestions would be helpful.
