Hi What do you think are: a) the best data recovery tools b) best tools to REPAIR defect FATs etc. For a) I think the R-Studio Editions are the best ones. Anyone knows better tools? For b) I don't know, actually. Any recommendations? Please let me know urgently. One of my HD partitions died (Window said 'Master Table defect') but I like to get not only those data back but REPAIR that Master Table as well. CHKDSK does NOT work on it. It is not drive c but on another's drive 3rd partition Thanks R.
