I recently decided to restore my PC to its original glory after having some trouble with Spyware and also some Spansih Norton software I couldn't remove. I used the system restore disk that came with my computer (restoring it to Windows XP home edition, i was on Pro before). Once I got it running some of my disks are now unreadable. I have three hard drives and now only one and a half are readable. Drive C is fine and so is the first partition of E. When i try to access the second partition of E (labelled F), however, it says 'F: is not accessible the file or directory is corrupted and unreadable. When I try to access D it says thaty the drive is not formatted and would i like to which i certainly would not as there is a lot of important music projects on there and i am, regrettably, slightly behind with my backups.
Now i thought windows Restore should only restore drive C and leave the others as is. Is it something to do with the settings in windows. I ahven't yet downloaded SP2 cause the site keeps giving me errors. Would installing back to XP PRO make any difference.
Both the drives that I am having trouble with were divided into partitions under Partition Magic 8. I installed that to see if it would help recognise and read the drives but it hasn't.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
