In Topic: Run 32-bit app on 64

28 June 2009 - 04:01 AM

Basically - if I have the installer for a program, say photoshop trial, which seems to be made to run on windows 32-bit, can that same installer be used on 64-bit versions of windows, without any issues, or decreased performance?

Yes, without any problem. Perhaps the performance will be even better.

In Topic: NTFS partition accidentally formatted with HFS+

When you format a partition, usually it's only write the index and nothing else. So, you have to fix the ntfs index info (mft) I think there is 2 copies of it, in case, so with a tool to fix a ntfs partition, perhaps you can fix it and then retreive some files. If you loose your partition also, you have to find it before (perhaps with http://www.cgsecurit.../wiki/TestDisk) testdisk.

Try it with testdisk, that's the only hope you have.

mmm! You now should try ntfs recovery or utility like that in linux (try google) and hope you can get your files.

In ubuntu, the ntfsprogs provide ntfsrecovery, but the man page said:

ntfsundelete cannot perform the impossible.

So I'm not sure it will be possible to get it back.

There is also ntfsinfo which will tell you if there is anymore inode table (index files) or the mft.

Try to boot with a LiveCD of Linux, set your partition to 7 (ntfs) (with fdisk) and try to mount your partition into linux, you will see if the data are still there.

good luck!
