Hard Drive showing RAW format instead of NTFS or FAT32
A few days back my pc started freezing on the opening of even a very lite software. It just become jam for a certain time and then start working. I thought that it is the fault of my OS (Windows XP) so I decided to reinstall my windows. So when I booted the pc and after prompting of OS where to install and which drive to format I chosen C drive.
After formatting and restarting the PC it says some windows file is missing. So I again booted from windows CD and there the C drive shows RAW file format instead of NTFS or FAT. So I tried again on C drive but the results are again the same. Please help me out because whichever drive I choose It becomes raw and windows installation never proceeds to next step. I contacted my hardware manufacturer and they said that it is due to bad sector and hard disk is completely damaged. Please help me as I do not want to lose my 10 years of hard work documents present on the hard drive
