I will try my best to answer questions on installation, maintenance, debugging and salvaging of internal/external hard drives. I've had experience recovering data from damaged disks and recovering disks after being diagnosed as corrupt/damaged. Just drop me a line and chances are I'll be able to help you or direct you to some one who can.

Hi,    Afraid the error prompt doesn't have any info. All I can suggest is to try using a third party utility like GPARTED or PARTITION MAGIC. Create a live disc and run a check to find out what's wrong
