How to repair FAT table?
I have a problem with my SATA HDD (only store data) which used to work normally some days before.
My PC have 2 HDD, one for booting win XP(1 partition), one HDD for data (2 partitions).
If there is only boot HDD, it work well, it can boot win XP and work normally.
But if I add the data HDD to the system, the booting time become very slow, when finish booting and open File explorer it seem the PC hang (infinite loop...), and there is no error msg. After about 5 mins it show up only one partition of data HDD, and again when I go to a folder in that, it hang or read very slowly.
I tried to use a boot CD and boot to DOS. Load Patition magic, it say error and can not see the partition table.
When use another partiton tool(arcronis partition manager) to check, it can list all partition but one have error details: "File allocation error - Overlaped" for the partition 2.
When I use a file commander (Norton...) it can see all 2 partition (on the data HDD) with all folders and files. I can copy some files to the boot HDD, however some files can not be copied with error msg: "File allocation error".
I would like to know how to repair the FAT table (from DOS) so that from Windows I can access to my data HDD normally, I don't care the corrupted files, just ignore or delete them.
Anyone experienced this, pls help me.
