View Full Version : [SOLVED] HELP, partition table recovery on external USB

Gods of terminal tranquillity please help ASAP! For me GUI is best when possible.

Last night I was formatting and installing 9.04 Jaunty onto a USB external with the LiveCD. Somehow it, well I, messed up and lost the partition table for 2 USB drives:

1 USB drive got the new system installed;
the other USB drive only has a boot folder with BCD and BCD.LOG;

If I can recover the drive data with just the boot folder, I am OK
