  1. hey guys. i will explain what i did, i was playing around with a linux install and i removed my tables of allocation by accident, i believe i didnt write anything to the drives. i have two 200g seagates on raid 0(sata) one 20g fat32 partition i think and one 350g ntfs partition. now the thing is i have tried to undelete them using partition magic 7 and also used ontrack file recovery progs. when using Pm7 i get an error when trying to undelete it(a read memory access error i think). and with ontrack it just quits out when scanning for drives. i dont know what to do it is a silicon 3112 chipset on a ga-7n400pro2. there are a lot of files on those partitions and i am stuck for answers anyone know how to do it?. thanks for any input.

    You could try writing a new partition table but I'm not sure it will work in this case.

    You can try using Runtime Software's GetDataBack for NTFS v2.31 (there is a FAT version also). It wll recover your files if they still exist. There is also RAID Reconstructor, which might be required (not sure if you need that though as your RAID set is not broken). You can find free trial versions over here ...
