NTFS isn't what it's cracked up to be
After running ROBOCOPY, Windows XP SP1 decided the disk I was copying *from*, was whacked. Suddenly XP can't see the drive is formatted. A reboot solves nothing. It contained the only copy of all our pictures from our last India trip. And I was just about to burn them all to DVD.
So I bought GetDataBack for $119. It tries, but fails, to get much off the disk.
So now I'm left with writing my own program in C++ to read the raw disk data to see if I can extract the images. I know the data is there.
I'll post the program, and the results of the search, once I'm done.
