If you are now using a 32 bit file system
(Win 98, Win NT, Win 2000) the old DOS 6.22
tools won't work.

You need a 32 bit recovery tool. There are
many on the market. I can personally attest
to RecoverNT (http://www.lc-tech.com/) which
saved critical data for me when a software
striped set refused to be recognized by the
OS. Recovering deleted files is childs play
for this tool. BTW, although called RecoverNT,
it works on both FAT32 & NTFS.

Good luck.
