Problem with partitioned hard drive
Hope you can help,
On my old PC, I used Partition Magic in Windows 98SE to partition the drive for Linux. Something went wrong or I made a mistake, so now my whole drive is non-DOS according to FDisk, I can't boot Windows, and it says Error reading C: Abort Retry Fail, presumably because the drive is no longer FAT32. There seems no way of changing it back without losing everything.
I had Linux installed until a few days ago when I was servicing another person's drive in my machine, and looked at the wrong one in PM and deleted my own Linux. It was when setting up the drive for Linux again that this happened.
Questions: Is my originally stored data still intact, but only accessible if I install Linux? (It's FC3 I've got on CD). Is my existing data saved under Windows onto the FAT32 drive all gone? Is it possible to convert Linux partitions back into FAT32 without data loss?
There was a lot of stuff on the drive, but I don't think any of it was overly useful as it was an old(ish) machine, but the thought of losing it troubles me greatly.
Please help me if you can.
