I've used Disk Director successfully before. This time I attempted to shrink my C: partition so that I could clone to an SSD. I had 148 Gb on 299Gb that I was trying to resize to 238Gb. When the dust settled this bleeper reported Corrupt Master File Table. My gut feeling tells me that 5 years of programs and tweaks are still there. Does anyone know how to recover? So far Acronis Recovery Expert, TestDisk and Seagate File Recovery no help. DMDE shows daylight but what is the proper procedure to work it's magic?
I'm currently copying the D: partition of the afflicted drive just in case.
