Hi nuber,

read the following very carefully.


I fear you may have already lost your data if it is only showing the drive as RAW now????????. ;)

Hi Wolfie,

Thnx for the tip :) downloaded the FREE Partition Wizard version, see what it can do, $99 is not what I call cheap but it's light in the tunnel

Hi nuber,

a good 100% free partition tool is GParted (Linux based partition tool) which you can use for all (as far as I know) formats. download the ISO image file and either create a bootable USB stick version or DVD, whichever you prefer, it is very good and I have used it for years!.
