Hi,

Recently i got 2 partitions in a single HDD (E: & F:)for data storage purpose. I realised that whenever i reformat the winxp hdd, upon booting up into winxp. It will prompt me errors in F: and advising me to do chkdsk. Upon doing chkdsk, it will always hang at a certain index causing me to reboot again. Upon booting up, i skipped the chkdsk this time round and i realised i'm unable to explore the files in F:. The weird thing is that the files in E: is still accessible.

I need advise in retrieving the files in F:! Is ghosting possible??

Thanks

It sounds like F is on its way out. If you cannot see the files, you can't copy them or ghost them.
If E and F are on the same HDD, I would quickly back up the files on E, else you might lose them too.

Thanks for the reply. Did a scan on E and its fine. Now trying to retrieve the data using data recovery prog :)

Ghost will typically fail if you have bad sectors, but there is a option to let Ghost ignore bad sectors. Are you getting bad sectors?
