    i corrupted my bootcamp win7 partition with testdisk, during my attempt to fix my suddenly corrupted osx partition...

    so, now my osx partition is fine again, but my win7 isn't.
    i can mount and read all the files, but it won't boot. fixing it via disk utility didn't work either (got tuxera ntfs installed).

    my testdisk knowledge is too limited for that. here are some screens i also attached the testdisk log.

    at this point the easiest solution for me appears for me to just format and restore the data. but since winclone won't start under lion (says, it needs 10.5 or 10.6) i'm a bit helpless. what can i use to make a bootable backup?
    disk utility? ccc?

    for any help i'm extremely grateful,

    My guess is that ntfsprogs works fine under Lion, and that does most of Winclone's dirty work. This means you should be able to manually restore from your Winclone image. I might be able to lead you through that, but probably not today.

    Too many other things going on.
