Corrupted DHx:

While attempting to run the KCS Power PC board software (http://eab.abime.net/showthread.php?p=1426157) my Workbench briefly prompted a read/write error on DH0: before showing a Guru message.

Now all my partitions are missing and I am stuck on a Kickstart screen.

It was a Workbench 1.3 setup using a SDCard + adapter in my ACA500+.

Is there anyway to restore / retrieve on my Amiga / Mac or do I need to start from scratch again?

It very much depends on what caused the Guru and corruption. If the SD card is dead, there is nothing you can do. Just replace it and start from scratch. But if the SD card still works and only some stupid software wrote some stupid things to it, then it could probably be recovered. Of course it still depends on what stupid things have been written to it.

Do you have an Amiga or emulator with Kickstart 2.0 or higher where you can connect the SD card to? All recovery software I can suggest needs Kick 2.0 at least.

I do yes, in some shape or form I can get it attached to a kickstart 2.0+ machine. If you have a good recommendation for recovery software that would be much appreciated. Thank you in advance.

Well, I hope it is not too scary if I suggest my own programs. There is RDBRecov on Aminet which is a command line tool to recover partitions.

I am currently finishing version 2 which is a complete rewrite with GUI. Maybe you'd like to test it (see attachment).
