The link is a direct download just like the first one. You should just get a blank page and a "Save" dialog window should open.

I do, but it says it can't open it when I try to d/l or save it.

Let me ask you this...Why wouldn't they all be the same if one is NTFS shouldnt they all be the same?

Try HERE...the download link is about half way down on the right. GetDataBack for FAT.

They both work for me, too.

I don't know why they would be formatted differently, but you've got some missing data and some missing partitions. We're just trying to find them. The first GDB program doesn't see FAT partitions so we're using the second GDB program to look for any FAT partitions on the disk.

Ok before I go there, I had tried to d/l it again and I clicked on open. It seemed to have worked, but when I went to open it and run it, it said...

Run virus check and reinstall...File corrupted.

How do I uninstall it now before I go further?

Also, I am running the NTFS one doing a mirror image to my external HD.

Ok, I got it uninstalled. Will now go and try the other one you gave me.

And thanks again guys.

start, control panel,add or remove programs. Clik on remove.

No, Just forget about the NTFS one for the moment. We are just going to concentrate on seeing whether you did format your other partitions as FAT or FAT32, and see if the software can find your files.

Ok this is saying the same thing...

File corrupted
Please run a virus check and then reinstall

Any suggestions?

Could it be having a conflict with the other one running? Or do I need to wait and run a virus scan? The NTFS is only about 7% done so far.

Very well could be a conflict. Since your not going to be puchaseing this anyway. Kill the other one.
It will NOT affect any of your files.

Ok a couple of things

First what about that I'm copying it to my external HD? That will mess that up.
Second, IE went down and it won't come back up on that computer.

When I tried to refresh the page, it went down and won't come back up. That acts just like a virus that was on it to begin with when all of this started in the first place.

What do you suggest?

BTW, I don't mind shutting down the other one, but at this point I'm more concerned about the possibility of another virus attack.

I juumped the gun, the other one was 7% finished.
It hasn't scanned the whole drive yet?
That's why you may not have seen the files on your other partitions.
