i have 2 hard drives, a 60GB master and 40GB slave. last night i formatted my master drive which had win2k on it, and installed win xp pro onto it. i backed up my data on the slave drive first, and once windows was setp up i tried to access the slave drive and it tells me that access to the drive is denied.
the slave drive was either obviously NTFS or FAT32, but when i right click --> properties, it says the file system is now RAW. i can't run scandisk, the slave drive doesn't show up in the defrag utility volume listing, but if i run diskmgmt.msc, the slave drive will appear as "healthy (active)" and listed as NTFS.
no one i have asked knows what's going on..
could it be, that whilst i had wink2k installed on this machine, the access to the slave drive was only given to me and my username. i didn't take this permission off before formatting (it slipped my mind) and i was thinking this may be the cause, but i really have no idea.
can anyone tell me if it's fixable, or a program that can extract the data (remembering it's saying it's RAWFS) to my master drive so i can format the slave again?
thanks a lot.
