recovered drives

Hi there,

My father tried to install an update on his PC from microsoft (possibly SP3 but not sure). The PC would then not boot up. It went into a PC repair place who diagnosed the motherboard to be knackered and possibly the two HDD's as well. They were recovered and given back to him. One was 160GB drive running programs and XP. the other, a 200GB, was added later for extra storage.

He has a device that can mount an internal drive as an external via USB. So we've plugged it into his laptop and it is actually reading the disc fine and we can copy files from it.

The problem is the second of the two discs (200GB storage) was partitioned into 'E:' and 'F:'. When we plug this disc in it only reads 'E:'. There is no trace of the F: partition. I need to find it and recover a large AVI file that was in the F: partition.

The disc is formatted NTFS.

Can anyone help?
