IDE HDD boot sector failure
a member of staff had a HDD failure and a well meaning friend ran fixboot from the recovery console.
They now have a c: partition but no data.
Anyone recommend a cheap/free product that could recover their data as they have no backup and so no work.

Re: IDE HDD boot sector failure
I'm guessing they had seperate data and system partitions?
Check what fdisk thinks is going on. If the 'data' partition is missing try recreating it.
