I am new to the forum and new to PC diagnostics so I am seeking your help. In trying to clean up a computer with Windows 2000, I used ntfs resize to put a partition in the hard drive. The drive has some very important data on it. Previously it had no partitions at all and was full of viruses. (mistake) I wanted to reformat the computer without zipping tons of files so I used the resize tool. After defraging the drive and using the software, I cannot get the computer to recognize anything on the drive, even when the drive is put in another computer. I am told the drive is clean, has no partitions, and no file systems.
But I think (hope, prey etc...) the data is still on there, I just can't access it. Does anyone have an idea on what I can do?
Any help would be worth its weight in gold.
