  1. Hi !! Some body can help me!!

    I have a computer with window xp professional with a hard drive of 80GB and a second drive with 40GB. I was installing windows xp again but the installation failded because the external cd drive had a problem while running the installation process from the CD. then i started to install windows xp from the beginning and it got successful installed. But my second drive with my data was unreadable. when i click on the second HD its shows me a message *the Disk in drive D is not formatted, Do you want to formatted* i click on NO. i was checking the file system and its says *RAW*.

    How can i get my data back. i'm desperate i need my data back.

    If you want to pay a lot of money to a data recovery service, they can probably retrieve your data. You installed XP on the C drive, and the second hard drive was D, so the CD/DVD drive is E? Was the C drive and the D drive formatted both in NTFS or FAT32?
