no, i installed the partition utility after I started having the problems..
Seagate tools results
File structure tests failed on both partitions:
partition1: the active and primary parition w/ winxp on it said : there are one or more errors found in metadata file records.
partition2: (the part. that disappeared, and is now an empty, unformatted, "raw" drive) says : basic structure corruption
seagate tools did not give any kinds of options to fix the problems though.
