|Hi There - been away for a a couple of days with work - still no joy here|
In answer to the previous questions
The primary drive is a SATA (Intel SSD)
All drives are SATA in BIOS
Running Windows 7 Ultimate
I am logged in as administrator.
I installed the drivers from the new motherboard.
Another point i forgot to mention was that this drive was never configured to have 3 partitions. there was always only one - 3 just appeared when i put the new MB in.
So after running Ubuntu through the flash drive, I noticed last night that the drive was now recognized as an ext2 type drive, not NTFS. I've no idea how that happened.
I used minitool partition wizard to convert it back to NTFS. Then when i looked at the drive through the Windows Disk management it was now listed as Raw ????
Totally frustrated, I deleted a small partition and rebuilt it with minitool partition wizard. The partition suddenly appeared on windows explorer but without any data.
Can i recover what was there before.
Help - there is about 4 years of important data on this drive for my sons business
