NTFS recovery

#1 Post by krasimir »

Hello, I am new to this forum and software and I believe I should ask before doing anything.

Here is the issue: I have external usb drive that I almost formatted instead of my usb key drive (trying to prepare an installation for my eeePC). Initially it had NTFS system, but after the mis-formatting, it is shown by the software as RAW FAT. There are few questions popping up:
1. Is it possible to recover the filesystem as NTFS?
2. If yes - would you help me recovering it? And if no - is it possible to recover the files, I tried some other software solutions, but they did not work as well as expected?
