External Hard Disk

I have a LaCie 250gb External Drive - originally I had three partitions, one of 100+GB (G), one of 50+ (P)and one at 1gb (O). The latter proved to be too small and, using PartitionMagic 8 I resized it to 2gb (O) -taking the extra, I thought, from the 50+ (P)partition. However, in the process I seem to have 'lost' the largest partition (G) - containing my backup image.

Anyone have an idea what happened? I have run Partitionmagic again - it lists the drive and unlike Partitions O and P which are marked as status 'None' the G Partition is marked 'active'.

Please assist in unravelling this problem.

Below are the entries as they appear in Partitionmagic - hopefully this will give someone, better equipped than I, a clue as to what has happened.

(*.) Extended 51,011.1 51,011.1 0.0 none Primary

Disk partitions merged and then reformatted.
