Re: How to recover a missing partition

Hi Derek,

PM8 is not compatible with Vista and should not have been used in the first place. You might try mbrwork from to recover the lost volume. You'll find it in the free tool downloads.

Best of Luck,

When Partition Magic 8 fixed my hard drive at start up, I found that one partition missing after Vista SP1 was bootstrapped. From within the Disk Management tool, the missing partition can be seen in the lower list(it is not listed in the upper list). Vista displayed an error when I right clicked the properties of the missing partition.

I am very frustrated with Partition Magic for causing such disaster. Despite trying some softwares to recover the missing partition, the problem persists.

Can anyone help?

Best regards,
