Thank you for the advise you have provided.

I did as suggested and it was no problem at all.

Unfortunately it seems as if the partitions was destroyed as well. When 
I look at the slice with the label editor it's empty. So chkdsk did a 
thorough change unfortunately.

Can you think of anything that would bring back the partitions?
