    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    Sorry. Really busy with work. So, you ran fsck on it. Did it report anything? You say you can't get to windows with it. Is it a boot disc? Or do you mean you can't get to it from Windows?

    Hi
    windows wont load/show the drive. its completely gone from windows.
    only shows at boot and in linux Live CD.

    fsck didnt report anything except date.

    i wonder if making symlink to ntfsck for ntfs-3g was correct.

    Well, you should not have had to do that. How were you running fsck? From some other tool? Did you try running ntfsck directly?

    What was the exact command string that you used?

    Code:
    ln -s /usr/sbin/ntfsck /sbin/fsck.ntfs-3g
    fsck -f /dev/sda3
