I have Windows XP Pro on my computer. I ran Partition Magic 8.1 to resize partitioned drive d and e on one disk. The process froze, so I shut down and restarted the computer. Now apparently PM renamed the E partition as pqrp and partition E does not show up at all, neither does the data on E. Have been unable to recover. Downloaded PTEdit32.exe and tried to run it but that fails with error #5 starting PowerQuest Engine.

Have not been able to chat with tech at Symantec, as their chat engine does not load.

Help is much appreciated.

First off, I NEVER perform multiple operations with disk management software. There's too many variables involved and one slip can render everything unreadable (as you've found out). It may take longer to do it one step at a time - but in the long run it'll save you effort.

Take a look here for some of the freeware solutions. Look for the Hard Drive & System Utilites Section on the first page: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic3616.html
