I have a portable HDD that is split into 2 NTFS partitions. For some reason, when I booted Linux (Ubuntu) to clean a locked virus on each partition, mounting was fine, and the virus was deleted. I tried booting to Windows XP afterwards, and what I found was that one of partitions became RAW, and I need the data on it.
For now I haven't touch the RAW partition. The other partition works fine.
Can someone suggest a way to recover the partition or the data inside it?
PS: freeware/open-source solutions are preferred.
Edit: Strangely enough, I tried to read the portable HDD on Windows 2003 Server, and it recognized the partition, but not with XP. I will backup all files before trying to fix the boot sector.
