We have an HD with 3 partitions, 2 are correctly identified but the third one is being reported as "unrecognized file system" by the WindowsXP Recovery Console.
This third partition was used to install the operating system. and by trying to enumerate the partition's files I get an error which indicates that the directory structure index is corrupted. unfortunately the partition also contained valuable data (we all love our bosses)
So, is there away to-rebuild the directory structure? can I use some sort of "live CD" to boot and run a utility to fix the problem?
p.s. All 3 partitions where NTFS. and the problem occurred after a power failure.
