I have a system running two hard drives.

O/s is XP with sp3 fat32 NTFS

The first drive has windows o/s on it and is ok.
the second drive has converted to RAW.

How can I convert the drive back to NTFS without buying software and without loosing files.

Any advice would be appreciated .

Hi there,

When a HDD reports "RAW" data, the File system as compared to the Partition or Partition table, has become corrupted. AFAIK, there is no application that will reFormat a partition without losing the data. It's the file system rather than a partition problem.

I like EaseUS also, very good products.

You really have to go to a Data Recovery application, like the EaseUS Data Recovery Program, which will identify the files which you can them move to a functional HDD.

Here is the URL of the EaseUS Data Recovery program. Problem these program give you 1GB of free data recovery, then you have to purchase the product if you still have data to retreive.

The other application that could be helpful is Piriform's Recuva. It is free and worth a try. Here is it's URL.
