Hey, I was using GParted to shrink my partition and make a new one for a dual XP Win 7 boot.
But durring the process GParted had an error. Now when I go to disk managment it is showing my hard drive as RAW instead of NTSC. I absolutally HAVE to keep the data in this partition. Please tell me there is a way for me to do this!

Thanks a lot

Did you realize that Windows 7 Ultimate has an XP mode?

"my hard drive as RAW instead of NTSC"

NTSC? Isn't that for televisions? I think you mean NTFS.

hard drive changed to RAW

Okay, we've corrected my abbreviations. The link was nothing more than search results...I know how to work google.
Is there any way to get my data back?

"The link was nothing more than search results"

Exactly. Did you read any of them? People with the exact same problem as you & how *some* of them where able to fix it.

I am pouring through google results, and have been for over an hour. And to have someone reposting search hits is a waste of time. if you dont know, then just say so.
Dont pretend google is your own personal secret.

Don't be such a fvkin dweeb. You're the numbnuts that didn't back up his important data before running GParted, not me. T the very least, you wiped out the partition table. Try searching for recovery software.

You may be able to recover the data by using a recovery program, but I doubt it. You should have made a backup of any data you wanted to save. We all learn the hard way. If the partition is raw, you have to format it to use it. And don't be sarcastic, Jam forgot more about computers than you will ever know.
