Hi there, I am attempting to recover a 250GB hard drive that was partitioned as one NTFS partition on Win2k SP4. The drive magically died one day. Using various Linux-based utilities, I can see the partition and see all of the files. The problem is that the partition table reads that there is a 15 MB FAT12 partition on the drive, and the remaining 249-odd GB drive is empty. Win2k Recovery Console Chkdsk won't touch it. A directory listing in the console reports back garbage. Fixboot tells me it's a FAT partition and writes a MBR accordingly. What I need to do is manually configure the partition table to see the whole drive as one NTFS partition. We purchasd Disk Director today to do this. However, when using disk editor, we cannot get it to save the right parameters for the first partition. It keeps knocking the number of Cyl's back from 32300 to 558. Any assistance in getting this partition back would be great. Thanks!
