  1. Ok so i have my 500g sata drive set up with 3 partitions. Windows was set up on the first partition and all my videos and music were on the other 2 partitions. I got a virus on my pc so i had to format the 1st partition. I installed xp and of course it only saw part of the 500g. So i installed sp2 and now what were my other two drives are showing up as one Unallocated drive. Is there any hope of getting back my info or am i gonna have to bite the bullet and set up the partition and start over again.

    Try Acronis True Image, or another partitioning program and see if you can recover those "lost" partitions
