I have seen strange problems with GPT disks twice. Furthermore I don't know much about all the GPT-structures on disk. What I do know... you can simply copy a GPT data partition to a MBR disk partition (using PW).

MBR stuff is much easier to troubleshoot... at least for me.

Again, thanks Kaktussoft. As Jumanji pointed out, you suggested copying off my data with PW. And at the end of the day, recovering the files is what counts. And no offense, but I hope I don't have either GPT or MBR disk partitions again any time soon :-) Be well, April
