    Hi everyone,

    I've got a major problem that I need help with! I have a Samsung 160 gb IDE hard drive that was loaded with about 90 gb of music. I tried cloning this drive to a brand new Maxtor 250 gb with a ******** cloning program on the Ultimate Boot Cd 3.4...The clone took about 6 hours and when it finished, it said it completeted with no errors.. The problem now is that when I plug EITHER drive in, it does not show ANY of my files!!!! I immedietly focused on retrieving my data from the OLD Samsung drive and for some reason when you connect it to Windows, it only shows it as having ONE 30gb partition that needs to be formatted!!?? How did this happen!? Surely all my music has not been lost! Has the parition that was holding my music become damaged? How do I access it again!? Its making me sick to my stomach to think I may have lost all this music. I have tried a few freeware programs to "rescue" the drive but it doesn't seem to help. Thanks for reading! :confused:
