Post WinToFlash corrupted my hard drive
Hey,
I was trying to get wintoflash to transfer an xp install disc to a seperate hard drive partition so I could boot from it, however, wintoflash told me it couldnt lock the drive, so I cancelled it. My computer (ASUS g74sx running windows 7 x64) then proceeded to shut down and refused to boot up my windows install anymore, giving me a blinking screen with a j. I then tried to boot up from a windows 7 recovery disc and tried to run a chkdsk but it told me that checkdisk couldnt be used on partitions that are RAW filesystems. Half of my life was on this laptop, is there any way I can recover the data, or has wintoflash corrupted my entire install permanently?

User error? Maybe you chose to format your Windows 7 partition by mistake. That or it's a bug since it is still in beta.

Heya, It fooked up my external HDD too;
created a 4gb partition on it for the W7 installation and now after trying wintoflash it couldn't format it because "it was in use" and now BOTH of my partitions of my external HDD is "unformated". Anyone know how to fix this? Is it even fixable? :shock: :shock:

This same issue happened to me. All 3 partitions were lost after rebooting and now I am trying to recover all those lost files. The problem I am having with data recovery wizard right now is when it asks me which partition are the files previously located. Of course the brilliant wintoflash software deleted all partitions so how am I to select? Imagine searching through almost a terabyte of hard disk for all files. Itr didn't even give a significant warning of what it was gonna do. yep not just you got the effing j sign. honestly, i don't think there's anything else to do other than install a new version of windows. the idiot who created that stupid software must be laughing at us now. domn you!!

Post SOLUTION Re: WinToFlash corrupted my hard drive
Hi guys fixed it thank God! :)

So basically ran across the same problem with my partitions wiped and some extra random partition created and was pretty pissed because I had a lot of work on there, so I was searching on the web and only came across this thread...Then I thought, windows was loaded so I can't have wiped the partition as it was locked and in addition when I mentioned this issue and my frustration in regards to it at home my mother said, "data is never lost only the address to it" so I figured maybe there is some kinda layout like the MBR - yes is the answer, it is know as the partition table. Here is the free software which will recover your partitions in a few seconds:

EaseUS Partition Recovery

Hi, same issue here , i downloaded wintoflash, tryed to create a boot-able windows os on my EXT HDD and now
it does not appear to read my drive at all, powers on, disk spins, but nothing.

1. My computer does not show the device
2. Disk manager does not show a raw/ntfs/ or fat32 anything other than my main c/ drive
3. powers going to it - disk spins but its completely dead

result - no matter of trying to new computers - recovery tools will do anything but waste over 3days of hassle and stress will recover this drive back to its original state as it clearly just does not register AS a drive at all

thanks for that.

My advice use a windows disk and a CD drive not ur lovable externals, in my case it cost me a good £40
