Hi all, been a really really long time. My Windows 7 computer just died on me yesterday (will get to the Ubuntu part), just when I need it to finish my papers for my finals next week. Wonderful. Partition table got screwed up, one thing led to another and eventually I was standing on the edge of a knife looking over the chasms of "Free Unallocated Space" where it used to be "Kai's Essential Drive". To skip a long story short, a partition of mine is screwed up. My external drive, to be more specific. All other screwed partitions have been rescued. My external drive can be viewed fine in Ubuntu. Files can be accessed, written and modified fine. However, I can't seem to fix the external so that my Windows 7 can read it. It shows up as a RAW drive and asks me to format it. I've tried using the terminal sudo gpart /dev/sdb, followed by sudo parted and using the sectors I've gotten to try and "restore" it. Doesn't work. Help! All my assignments and junk are there. The former and latter equally important.
