I was using XP on a 20GB (fat32) and my computer crashed. To make a long story short I bought a new drive. Now Iím using XP on a 80 GB drive (NTFS)

I was using a 10 GB drive (fat32) as a backup drive to my 20 GB drive. How can I recover or access these files on this drive?

Please take into consideration of my limited knowledge of computers and operating systems when answering my post. I hope this picture is readable.

Try this data recovery tool:

The D: drive you show is the 10GB backup drive, is that right? The File Allocation Table looks to be corrupted and it may not be a simple task to access your data.

What does Disk Management say about the drive? Control Panel>'Administrative Tools'>'Computer Management'>'Disk Management'


Soltek QBIC, Pentium 4 3.0GHz, 512MB RAM, 200GB SATA HDD, ATI Radeon 9600XT 256MB, Netgear 54Mb/s WAP, ridiculously expensive Satellite Broadband
