Author Topic: Changing Hard disk drive letter  (Read 4030 times)

I've recently changed my HDD letter from H: to G: . I did it, because for the lack of time i.e. copying, pastying etc. And now windows XP seems not to respond to the hard disk (Tried different machines -same problem, because firstly I thought it was problem with OS registrers). DiskManagement shows that there is unformatted empty disk. But when I connected HDD to linux based system (OSX if to be precise), it was fine: the disk was readable, data was there, i.e. the fully functional drive. So my question is: How I can repair this error without loosing any data, that windows OS will read it again.

Thank you.

Linux is far more forgiving than Windows when it comes to certain types of file system damage. As you can access your data, the obvious solution is: backup the data, reformat the disk, then restore the data.

We can try see if we can repair this, but then we need a DiskPatch support analysis logfile.
