Not able to access one partition after Partitionmagic resize

#1 Postby raulz77 » 06 Jul 2012, 08:10

I am currently in a midst of troubleshooting my old 80GB Seagate HD (initally consists of 1 bootable FAT32 partition and 3 NTFS partition). I tried to enlarge the size of FAT32 partition using Partitionmagic by taking some of the spaces from one of the NTFS partition. However, the process didn't go well because the HD are close to its max capacity. As a result,
the FAT32 partition is not working anymore (cannot boot and many files are missing). After purchasing a new 1.5 TB, and make that HD bootable, I attached my old HD to the motherboard. I was able to run DeepSearch using TestDisk. Please advise on what to do next. The following is the screenshot I obtained running DeepSearch.


Please help ...

An update, I was able to retrieve the NTFS partition whose size was taken out to contribute to my FAT32 partition size. Files from that particular NTFS are still exist and can be retrieved. Thanks to TestDisk. However, I still cannot recover files from the FAT32 partition. Can someone help me ?

Please don't use Partition Magic anymore.
It's obsolete and doesn't support NTFS 5.1 (WinXP) nor megabyte boundary since Vista-Win7.
Your screen only displays not recoverable partitions endimng after disk limit and wrong partition type.
It's only a message that they're not recoverable.
Did TestDisk find your FAT32 partition?
Screens form Analyse (your current partition table) Quick and if TestDisk didn't find your partition from Deeper Search also.

Fiona,
Thanks for your prompt reply, TestDisk found my FAT32 partition, please scroll down my attachment picture (as in fact I put two screenshots on the above attachment). However that FAT32 partition's file system is corrupted. I ran the PartitionWizard (free edition) full search. And it gives me : unallocated overlapping partition.
My wild guess is my other data is on that unallocated overlapping partition. Please advise. The following is logfile obtained after running DeepSearch.
