I have Win98 System and installed PArtition magic 5.0 I wanted to install new operating system Win 2000. I gave 4 operation in Partition magic to make 1GB HD free for Win 2000. Format to FAT32. And make that partition as primary.
I also installed Boot Magic and made 98 as default Boot.
After that the system rebooted it self and operation 1 started for making place for Partition.
As it was 40 % complete i got an error "unable to read file".
And i was expected to restart as the Partition magic has failed in continuing the operation.
When I start the computer I find the whole Win98 has been renamed with some characters and I cant reboot. Luckily i had some Boot Disk I booted and found in fdisk that the partition is made. Then I surface scanned My system. The scandisk fixed the deleted directories. Now I have the partition with all Filech0001.chk files. There are somany files. Can you advice me how to recover from this problem.
Can i get my lost data back?
Can I get my Win98 Back ?
Is there any link to any such problems happened earlier?
I think that many might have faced the same problem. Since Partition magic might have failed in many systems.
Waiting for a reply soon.
