  2. Corrupted NTFS Partition Table

    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?

    Move Win7 64 image from a partition NTFS to a new drive

    EDIT: After reading your first post again, is there any reason that you would now need GPT? Are you just trying to move the windows install to a new disk or is there a new motherboard involved?

    If you are already booting to an NTFS partition, then it makes me wonder if after copying to the new drive, the partition isn't getting marked as Active.

    Following the same steps I posted above for startup repair, you can get to a command prompt and use diskpart to see if this is the case.

    Code: In the command prompt: diskpart list disk select disk 0 (disk number may be different if you have other disks connected.) list partition select partition 0 (partition number number may vary, but you want to see the boot partition which is the same as your windows partition according to the screenshot on the OP) detail partition (This should have Active: Yes or No. If it says no, since we have the partition selected, you can just use the following command in diskpart) active[/quote]

    How to convert RAW partition to NTFS partition.

    Hi,

    Welcome to Microsoft Community and thank you for your interest in Windows 10.

    I understand the inconvenience that you are experiencing. I will definitely assist you.

    Please try the below steps to convert the RAW partition to NTFS partition.


    • Press Windows key + X and click on
      Command Prompt (Admin).


    • At the command prompt, type convert drive_letter: /fs:ntfs, where drive_letter is the letter of the drive you want to convert, and then press Enter. For example,
      convert E: /fs:ntfs would convert drive E to the NTFS format.

    • Type the name of the volume you want to convert, and then press Enter. You must use the existing name of the volume or the conversion will be canceled. You can view all available volumes in the
      Computer folder under Hard Disk Drives
    Notes: After you convert a partition to NTFS, you cannot convert it back. If you want to use the FAT file system on the partition again, you will need to reformat the partition, which erases all data on it.

    Although the chance of corruption or data loss during a conversion is minimal, you should back up all data on the partition before you begin.

    Hope this helps. Post us with status we will be glad to help you.
