Re: Recovering Lost FAT32 partition (Urgent)

Yes!!! I managed to recover the partiton 100%!!!

Thanx a lot to Ghane and Leo for their valueable inputs.

I had to do it manually by adding a new partiton at the *exact* same position
(start and end sectors) using fdisk.

And was I /happy/ or what when I saw the results of an ls after mounting the
newly edited partition table.
