Corrupted Hard Drive

  Liteman 14:21 21 Jan 2007

I have recently installed a Lacie remote (USB) hard drive

I run XP Home Edition, Lacie is formatted NTFS.

I have recently transferred some Photoshop files across to the Lacie for safe & final storage, each file being anywhere in the region of 150 to 500MB. Having moved them I deleted them from their original position to free up space.
Have just tried to access one of these files, to be greeted by "K:\is not accessible. The file or directory is corrupted". I know that the disk is working (in part) because it's second partition (L)is fully readable. Is there any way of getting into drive K without having to reformat?

Keeping files just in one place cannot be considered "safe". You should always keep a back-up.

Cuddles, It looks as if Drive Rescue has been discontinued, only to be replaced by a successor costing many dollars.

Batch, I know your're right, but I had planned do do backup with my weekly backup this weekend - best laid plans etc.

Woodchip, bit thick probably, but can't work out how to use TestDisk.

Could you try a 'Undelete' prog on your hard drive to recover them from their original position?
