After install OS2 ver4 I only access primary harddisk and i can't access logical hard disk to use my old data. if i use Pqmagic i still see logical harddisk.

When you say OS/2 version 3 - do you mean Warp Server?? If the
logical drive was formatted with HPFS386...then you won't be
able to access the drive unless you add HPFS386 functionality to
OS/2 Warp 4 (hich is not too difficult to do).

Do you mean the logical data partition does not show up at all
in the OS/2 v4 FDISK menu??

Thank for help. My old disk didn't install HPHF386 because i tried installing it but i can't access my logical driver. My coputer is a recorder and it is a client. While i use FDISK in advance install i can see logical driver in FS type. I used ghost 8.2 to clone disk and installed in that disk. If i use fdisk for logical driver i can't access that driver but all old data disappear. How can i recorver old data? Os2 ver 3 now haven't operated. What i can try in orderto access my logical driver to use old data ? Help me if you can because i try all my best.
Please answer me as soon as possible. Thank for help ?

I have to admit, I am not quite following you here - so any advice I give
might be incorrect. But - if you can boot from floppies and see your
logical drive (and the data on it), then perhaps you could use zip.exe
to zip up the partition into a single file (placed on the boot partition).
Then boot up to your primary partition, delete the logical partition - and
recreate it/format it using your current installation of Warp 4 - then
use unzip.exe to return the data to the newly created logical partition.

Sure thing - here is a good discussion of exactly how to pull this off:

The version of unzip.exe you want to use is found here on the hobbes NMSU repositroy:

http://hobbes.nmsu.edu/pub/os2/util/archiver/uzs550x2.exe

And as for the zip.exe that is discussed in the above mentioned usenet
posting, look here for details and downloads:
