    Lost Partition (Partition Magic 8.0)

    I was trying to resize my primary partition last night to add some more free space to the partition. The operation was not successful (508 error) and I was left with 10 GB of unallocated space that was supposed to be added to my Primary C: partition. I attempted to reallocate the free space and got that 508 error again (I don't know the meaning of that yet) so I moved it back to the partition it came from and closed Partition Magic for the night as it was late. This AM I attempted to store a photo I got off the net on my Storage partition and was told it was not available. A quick check showed it had disappeared from My Computer. I went to Partition Magic and the partition was there minus it's drive letter but still titled Storage. I was unable to browse the partition in PM, and am now wondering, short of restoring from an image that is about 2 weeks old, how to get my data back ??

    Any ideas ??

    Can you see it in Disk Management? If so then try assigning a drive letter from there.

    Hi Stuart,

    Never mind, Stuart. I decided to be smart and read the help file. <img src=/S/bingo.gif border=0 alt=bingo width=15 height=22> Worked like a charm. Thanks for the direction and usual solid advice. <img src=/S/thumbup.gif border=0 alt=thumbup width=15 height=15>
