I recently accidentally overwrote part of my NTFS partition
Steps taken, but unsuccessful?
- I've tryed Scandisk/Chkdsk, both couldn't recognise the partition.

I recently accidentally overwrote part of my NTFS partition (the header to be more precice) with an extended partition, while trying to recover from a messed up partition table.

I am now unable to access the data on that partition from either Win2k or Linux.

- I've tryed Scandisk/Chkdsk, both couldn't recognise the partition.
- GNU PartEd doesnt support rescueing NTFS partition (not much of a surprise) :-(

I am sure, that only a few bytes were overwritten after the partition was accessable, so the files are all still on the harddrive. As such I am now looking for a way to either repair the NTFS partition header, or at least extract the files to another harddrive.

I would greatly appreciate any help, thanks in advance.

if you are having one more PC either with you or with your friends connect your HDD in that PC as slave , after booting you can access your data even you can repair HDD in slave mode.
