Dear Luvhuffer: I wonder if you could help me with this: I have two hard drives on my PC (seagate 232 gb), I had all my files and information in called "s drive" and in the other drive "m drive" I had some old files stored, I wanted to install last sunday a new os in the "m drive" so I did a format, after a few minutes I realized something was not right so I stop the operation, when I realized that instead of formatting the "m drive" it did start to format the other one "s drive" so now I have a big problem trying to recover all my documents and settings, files etc. from the hard disk "s drive", I tried "file recovery for windows", it does reconize some sectors, but can´t find the files, I try repairing (from windows xp installation cd, recovery console r) boot.ini with bootcfg /rebuild, I tried fixmbr and fixboot, I tried what it is explained on the website article below: webcast.broadcastnewsroom.com/articles/viewarticle.jsp?id=8658 Nothing at all did work, still getting this "error loading operating system" on the DOS screen. I wonder if you would have a solution that I could try, without formatting the disk that means losing the data I have stored on it. (if it is not lost yet). Hoping to hear from you and thank you for your time. Best regards.
