Windows 7: Need info on a program to fix Partition records

Need info on a program to fix Partition records

Hello People:

I remember a while back (9 months to 1+years) I ran across a program that would scan a hard drive that showed in disk management as an unallocated drive, and at least attempt to repair partition records. I have such a drive from a laptop. I have used easus to recover most of the data but would like to see if I can fix the partition records before I format it. I will most likely boot nuke it but I was curious if it could be saved to make backup of data and setting easier.

Thanks for you time and input.

I'm lost but that is easy to do to me.
What is/are a ( partition records)?
Are you trying to remove all partitions and remove all information on the hard drive?
I'm not sure what you are trying to do.
Did you replace the hard drive because it was giving you problems?

I got a laptop in that says "no operating system" on a black screen. I would like to back up the high amount of photos and music on the drive. When slaved to another win 7 machine it shows unallocated for the drive status. I used easus recovery to "find" the data on the drive and make a copy but it is incomplete at best because I cannot duplicate the user settings, email and favorites. the data is there but easus does not see it correctly. *whew* What I would like to do is this. I would like to repair the partition records on the drive because it passes S.m.a.r.t and extended tests. if I can do that I can make a proper backup of his data and the wipe the drive with boot nuke to do a "clean install" the put his data back on.

Thank you for your reply

I surly didn't mean to step on any toes.
I do understand what you are trying to do now.
Let us know if the program VisaKing has posted solves your problem. If that program does everything is says it can do you should be happy.
Have a nice day.

My apologies Layback Bear I do not feel you stepped on any toes, I welcome all input. I was and am willing to explain anything I say as I know I am not always the clearest in getting ideas to words.

So No Worries. OK?

I believe this is the one I used before VistaKing. I for the life of me could not get a clue on google or bong oops I mean bing.
I will try both and see what happens. I have a couple of older drives that I haven't formated yet and show as unallocated. if one works best I'll use that one on customers drive. I'll let you know which I feel does a better job.

Thanks a ton
