    HELP! Lost partition

    When I went to bed last night, my disc looked like the top panel. When I booted up this morning, it looked like the bottom panel. The lost partition contains all my data, and was an NTFS volume (I've only just noticed that even last night it had already seemed to have lost its drive letter, for some reason). The only thing that happened in between was using EasyBCD to try and add an entry to the vista bcd, but I didn't think that should mess with the MFT.

    Is my partition retrievable? My data is not so valuable that I would stretch to professional recovery fees, but it's more than just a bit annoying.

    Could this be OS related, particularly in that there was unallocated space in an extended partition before the volume in question, or does it mean that my (new) hard drive is dodgy?

    Thanks

    Which version of EasyBCD do you use? On Sep. 5, 2007 version 1.7 was released, which has a fix for "EasyBCD Errors-Out on Non-Mounted/Missing Partitions"

    You can download it from http://neosmart.net/dl.php?id=1
