  1. Hi!:wave:
    Im new to techspot env but quite keenly looking for a solution...hope u guys can help me out.....

    i have read similar threads too but coudnt find a solution to my prob:( so writiing mah own....

    i have 250Gb Hard disk into 4 partition of 50+50+100+50 Gbs each.
    I recently upgraded to Windows vista from windows Xp-SP2.Bt found former a big crap n reverted back to WinXp-SP2.

    But to my amusment when i first booted back in Winxp the 100Gb partition is although shown in My Computer but double clicking it says : "E:\ not accessible parameter not correct"!!!! or sometimes if i skip the disk scan at boot up it says ""e:\not accessible the file or directory is either corrupted or unreadable"

    *File system is NTFS
    *The disk is shown as logical in Disk Managment and all recovery tools i tried!!!!:giddy:
    Please help me get it working back on track as i got loads of my data on it!!!!

    try this: right click on my computer, click on MANAGE. click on disk management on the left when the management console loads up. scroll down to your disk/partitions, right click on one of the drives/partitions, and see if it lets you INITIALIZE them. if so, this will restore functionality of your drives. be careful you don't do anything like format them though.
