Here's my problem - I was converting a fat32 partition yesterday into an ntfs partition when the power went out and fubar'd the partition. So any hope at salvaging files with the FAT or MFT are more or less totally dead. When I was fumbling around with the backup CD it landed on the floor somehow and I put a chair leg on top of it. It is now also fubar'd. So none ofd the data on the partition is gone, just the FAT. I now need to reconstruct the drive sector-by-sector. Whether it recostructs a FAT of a MFT does not matter. Does anyone know of a reliable open-source utility which is designed to reconstruct drives after a catastrophic failure like this?
