    My computer turned off while another computer on my network was ripping an ISO to its hard drive, now the partition that the iso was ripping to can't be opened, is the drive #@%ed or is there anyway to get back on it? I would really hate to lose all the stuff on it considering it was a 50gig full of mp3's and movies of mine.

    any programs? utils anything!?!?! please some one!!!

    Have you tried doing a check disk on the drive. That might fix any errors that were caused by the shutdown.

    All seem to have a free trial or are read only but hopefully you might find one that is able to show that your files are still there..... or not.

    I don't know if this is possible for you, but if it is not a primary drive, try mounting it in another computer

    windows says that the file system is "raw" it used to be NTFS now I can't get to any files on the drive and every pc I have has XP on it.

    There are programs for free to restore data. Unfortunately I don't remeber which ones. Try searching with Google. Perhaps www.sourceforge.net knows something?
     
  15. i've got something, but not sure

    I've once got that problem on my computer too, but here i go. First of all, I've got this program called GOBACK!. This program was installed before this mess comes up then i use goback to go all the way 1month along. I got my thigns back completely in order. If it still happen and you installed the GOBACK before it happen then you're a good luck guy. If not! here's a little tip and trick, but it only work soemtimes and depend on the harddrive. Push your harddrive all the way, not too hard. The handle should stuck and be readed when you try to send the item or when you still doing something. This is important because sometime, the harddrive might *&^^&^@. Well, good luck!:cool:
