My PC is dual booted with [Windows 7 Ultimate/Ubuntu]. While in Ubuntu a text file went missing but the Partition was still there, I booted into Windows & could not find the file although the Partition was there. Then Windows "Blue Screened", after re-boot Chkdsk tried to run & gave this message:

"corrupt master file table, chkdsk aborted"

When I click on the Partition drive letter:

"E:\ is not acessible.
The file or directory is corrupt and unreadable".

BlueScreenView identified the cause of the crash as "Ntfs.sys" & "ntoskernel.exe", I booted back into Ubuntu & the Partition was gone. When I got back into Windows BlueScreenView had no data & Windows Minidump folder was empty, how can I recover the Partition? :unsure:
