Which partition to choose?

#1 Post by Protino »

I have two same partitions marked as Deleted, when i choose p to list the files both of them show all the files and folders.

Now which one should i mark as Deleted and which one as primary. One of them says it has been found by using backup sector.

Usually it's better to choose the partition not using the backup boot sector.
