My portable hard disk has been divided in two part, today i connect it to my desktop, one part can be open, another part can't be recognized!!! ](*,)
My doc. and photos in that, although 20G, i don't want to miss them.
Would you tell me how to do to find files back?
Thanks a lot!!!!

When you connect the drive, does the second partition show up in "My Computer"?
If it does, what error do you get when you try open it?

If it's not listed in my computer, r-click "Computer" or "My Computer" then click "Manage"
Go to "Disk Management" and click on the drive there.
Doe it list 2x partitions there?
Is there any warning sign? If there is, what error does it say?

If it's not listed in "Disk Management", you might have to boot from a linux CD.
Knoppix or Ubuntu would be easiest to use.
