So we use passport ultras for storing windows 7 images and use Acronis Snap Deploy to deploy those images.
Recently I used the Snap Deploy 5 CD to reimage a machine, and once I selected the .tib image file to deploy, it said it was corrupted and now the Ultra is not recognized by windows. I can see it in hardware manager, but under disk management it just shows as totally allocated.
Does this mean the data is lost? I find it hard to believe Acronis would just automatically wipe the entire drive because of some error. I also understand people asking ‘Why don’t you go ask Acronis since it was their software that messed it up?’.
I’m not worried about why it happened as much as I am getting the data from the drive back. Is it possible?
Things I’ve tried:
-There is no ‘assign drive letter’ to that disk like so many online guides seem to think helps’
-I can create a volume on it, but I have to format it to use it and I don’t want to lose the data
-Tried using that one wizard (I forget the program name) to partition it but to no avail
any way to get the data back? I ran the WD drive scan on it and it seemed to be fine.
