Correct me if Im wrong,
So it sounds like no AVAST does not have this make a rescue disk feature ?
Now remembering this took place years ago, and now I want to hook the "bad"
Drive up as a Slave and hopefully see if I can burn the files on a CD,
Which is why it's on Windows98SE, for that computer.
I did make this AVG rescue disk, infact 2, 1 on a floppy and 1 on a cd, those
were choices AVG Free gave me.
I used the AVG Floppy I made and it found and cleaned or deleted whatever it
found, it's been so long I can't tell you what it was.
I watched it as it scanned, and it scanned every area of both partitions,
inlcuding the secondary partition and files that when I used my Windows 98 Boot disk to check the partitions didn't show, it could only see the primary partition,
So the MBR partition table information was missing, But ofcourse the files are
still there, the only option Windows boot disk would do is create a new
partition, and I believe IF I did that I would lose the files, since ofcourse it has to be formatted before you can use it etc.
Infact I think that if I boot the Hard drive it will write something to the mbr Partition Table, then I might lose all the files,
IF ONLY I could partition it exactly the same and it would take place, with out
having to format, or create a partition with the remaining with out having to format or something along those lines.
Even though I think the hard dirve will boot to the C: Partition, I think the D:
Partition will be lost, probably definitely inaccessable.
I probably need a good program that would read and extract
the files on a inaccessable hard drive.
But I have no idea, I am ready to try and hook it up as a slave, but I am leary, because of the partition Table. The D: Partition is where all the files are
I want to get it was the storage drive so to speak.
Hoping that if somethign went wrong I could format the C: drive,
reinstall and be good to go...Bzzzzz Wrong answer. :)
