Update on RAW partition.
On my computer, running Win 7, if I allocate some space on a hard drive to a partition — but do not format it, then it will show up as being a RAW partition. That is in place of NTFS designation had I formatted the partition.
When you see the RAW for a partition that you know was being OK before, that tells me that for some reason the disk is not being read 100% correctly. Until I was sure why that is, I don’t think I would do much writing to the disk
