Cannot Write Partition

#1 Post by kirantnath »


I have used Analyze function and succesfully found my lost partition.
Everything works fine, even "P" to show the list of the files but when I go ahead and click write partition info and enter "Y", it says "Error in writing partition" or something of that sort

Please help
The log file is attached.

The missing partition is:
dir_partition inode=5
L HPFS - NTFS 69124 80 17 166731 9 25 1475813376
NTFS, blocksize=4096, 755 GB / 703 GiB
