I have a 160GB drive that for some reason or another has a corrupted NTFS partition table. The NTFS partition (about 129GB) is inaccessible, (I get an error message stating that I need to format the drive inorder to use it.) and the remaining free space is in RAW format. For some reason the normal tools will not recognize the original NTFS partition and I cannot repair/recover the partition. Can anyone recommend any tools that they've used to repair/recover NTFS partition information? Part of me is thinking of just formatting the drive and then trying to recover what I can through recovery software. Any idea's?
