What version of Partition Magic did you use?

Do you have the ability to download another utility? If so, try Partition Wizard. There is a home version that is bootable. It seems to work well in Win 7 although if the other utility caused a problem, it may not be able to fix it.

After you get it burned, boot to the CD and look at your drives from outside Win 7. Maybe it can fix the problems.

I think you friend is right, but I did get one user denying this.

Partition Wizard has a partition recovery utility. If it was me, I would try that. It also can rewrite the Master Boot Record if you right click on the actual drive name you should be given that option.

If you wanted to check the *Paragon site*, they are into hard drive repair utilities, but it might take a purchase...or perhaps there is a free download.

I don't have any other suggestions. Just go slow and be careful.

Have you downloaded Partition Wizard?

If you booted to the Partition Wizard CD, were you given the option to recover a partition?

And yes, you are at risk of losing your data....

Since the error message in Disk Management requests the computer be restarted, I must assume you have already done that....
