I have a 60 gig (secondary) h.d. that I partitioned 20/40 w/ Partition Magic. In order to save space, I merged the partitions, saving the contents on a sub-folder of the first patition. When I attempt to access the folder w/ my files from the 2nd partition, there's nothing there. Viewing the drive , the amount of space the former partition took is listed as "unallocated". Other notes: both part.'s were NTFS, I have tried the rescue disks both when I created the 2 partitions, and another set I made after merging, but I keep getting a "missing batch file" error . I haven't attempted to use or change anything on this drive as I hope to possibly recover the files from the former partition. Any help or suggestions are greatly appreciated.
