    Hard Drive Shrunk Please help

    So i have an external 1 terybyte usb i use for my wii it has 2 partitions 50gig Fat32 and 950gig ntsf after some app updates they were having trouble reading my ntsf where all my games and movies are stored. So i figured convert the 950gig to fat32 i found a program that said it would do it and not loose my data. I had like 700 gigs of games and movies on it. I used "Aomei NTFS to FAT32 Converter" it turned my 950gig partition to 8gigs at least thats what windows is seeing .. I checked with a partition program from "Hirems Ultimate Boot CD" and it shows the full size of the partition but i cant figure out what to do to correct it. It took me a long time to get everything all backed up on it and realy dont want to have to reinstall all my games... But even more so i had a ton of tv series on there i dont want to loose. Please can any help me ... And after this i did google and found some others that had same problem with "Aomei NTFS to FAT32 Converter" but i didnt find any solutions.



    !!!!!!!!PLEASE HELP!!!!!!!!!!

    Sounds like your done for. You could give acronis disc director a try, see if it can recover the previous partition/data. If that fails you can give a try with a data recovery app. Probably not a good thing.

    I remember looking into that program awhile back and I just remembered that the trial version of it would only convert the first 8 gigs. ...Wonder if that has something to do with it?

    Yeah, there heaps of cracked exe files out there for that program. Maybe you DL a bad beta version or something. And to support cjizzle, there's a free lite version available for DL at the moment, but only lets you convert 30 gigs.
