Today my main WD Caviar Black 1TB drive decided to report itself as a 32 GB partition only. It has somehow created this empty partition in front of what was approx a 927 C :> drive partition now making access to my OS and data impossible. I have looked at the partition with Acronis 2010 and it clearly shows two partitions so I presume my data is still there and I am currently trying to backup the data even though I cannot see it. This is really serious WD and needs to be sorted out urgently. You just cannot expect end users to deal with this sort of stuff up randomly happening
and placing data at risk - its really very bad. There must be a way to remove that 32Gb partition without damaging the partition behind it but I cannot find any software that sees past this 32gb partition - only Acronis True Image 2010 sees it. If there is a tool out there that will put my drive back as it was I would appreciate any advice.
I am not happy at present.
