Partition Deleted in error!

  freddie911boot 13:47 25 Mar 2007

In error, using the XP partitioning utility, I have partitioned the wrong drive.

Can I get the data back?

I suggest only by using data recovery software, do NOT use your computer. When I had a similar mishap, I went to a local computer company and they charged by the hour.

Rob_25_Wales does this work on ntfs because your how to guide describes FAT32

This will work on anything man trust me.

Thank you for your replies.

What happened was that, using the XP installation CD, I removed the partition on my D drive when I meant to partition the C drive to reinstall XP.

Now, the computer does not recognise the D drive which is where all my information was stored.

Have you had a go of using Testdisk??

  freddie911boot 17:05 25 Mar 2007

Thank you (Rob_25_Wales) very much.

It worked totally easily and everything is back!
