Recovering files from a formatted hard drive

  Aiptek 22:45 30 Mar 2003

I’ve got a 40gb hard drive. And I had partitioned the hard drive into 4 parts. On the C: drive I had the windows 2000 and on the D: drive I had winXP. And the D: drive was partitioned as NTFS and the rest 3 as Fat32. So I wanted to Format the D: drive and install windows XP again. I used windows 98 start-up disk and formatted the D: drive. When I restarted the windows I realised that I had formatted the E: drive instead. Because the start up disk doesn’t recognise NTFS format. I had important documents on the E: drive. Is there anyway I can get them files back using any software’s?

Thanking the helpers in Advance

I’m having nightmare. I’ve been building pc’s for the last two years and never came across to this kind of problem.

I’ve just built a pc. The motherboard is PC Chips 810LMR V7.X 266FSB MATX Socket A Video Sound Lan Motherboard. The processor is 1.7Xp, 256mb ram and 40gb hard drive. I’ve connected all the wires and then started the pc. The pc boots up but I can’t hear the beep sound. And I also can’t see anything on the screen. So I changed the processor to 1.3ghz. The pc started and blow up the processor. I could tell by the smell. And way I built another pc replacing it with a brand new motherboard and processor. Again the pc starts and I cant hear the beep sound nor anything comes up on the screen.

Can anyone tell me where I’m going wrong?
