    C:=80GB ... 60GB XP ....20GB Linux

    My backup drive (200GB) became corrupt the other day and I'm trying to figure out how
    to restore it. In the past, normally when this happened in the past I would run a recover program and then store those files on my third HD...but the third HD crashed a couple of months ago. So now I'm left with trying to recover 120GB of data from the 200GB and put it on the remaining 60GB partition of XP....follow?

    Here is my question, the 200GB drv was formatted as NTFS but is now listed as RAW within
    My Computer...is the MFT for that drive corrupt? If so, is there a way to restore? I dont have
    the means to buy another HD at this time. What would be the most efficient way to recover?
    Thanks in advance. :)
