Corrupted hard drive ntfs

80 gig drive I scanned for viruses by putting the drive into another PC

Must have been when I removed the viruses Norton's found. The file
allocation table corrupted

When I look at the drive now it still has 8 gigs used

But all I can see on the drive is autoexec.bat

When I start windows xp and this drive is slave it tells me it needs to be
checked for errors. I have not done this as yet

I used ontrack about 2 year old version and it saw the drive but it saw it 2

1 was name of drive other was unknown drive. On both drives ontrack froze
when I asked to check the drives

What software would you use to retrieve the 8 gigs of data
