A HUGE favor and question!

  1. I could really use some help regarding this issue! Here's the deal: My boss's laptop crashed. I swapped the HD into a new XP PC and found that it was only recognizing one side of the partition. The other side of the partition was recognized as a drive but more like an ambiguous mass that needed to be formatted. My boss will REALLY appreciate if I can recover the 'missing' side of his partition. Many people have suggested Partition Magic for the recovery. Could somebody please tell me if this is a good idea (or provide an alternate idea) and tell me how to do it? This would mean a great deal to my future in this company if ya get my meaning. If we can solve this today, I will buy you all a beer, granted it might be a tad warm by the time it gets there! Please Help!

    If you do a little search on these boards for file recovery, you'll find a few suggestions on what programs others have used with great success...
    If you can't find them, post back, and we'll try to help.

    Good luck!
