I am using an external hard drive disk on my laptop (Fedora 8) to keep a clean system in case of emergency. I tried to install Mandrake 2008 from the live cd on this disk, but I think the installation crashed at the partitioning step.
Since then, when I insert the drive in both Windows and Fedora, it is impossible to see its content.
A new device /dev/sdc appears (I only have one disk on my system, why is sdb still present ?), but it is not mounted.
Also, gparted live cd doesnt show the device and parted and hexdump don't give any output.
fdisk /dev/sdc returns "unable to read /dev/sdc"
Has anyone got any idea on how I can recover the disk ?
