Hi, i'm a newbie at this site and have a problem with partition magic 8.0. i have an 80G external drive named myBook(G drive) and tried to split it into 2 partitions (D, E) by using PM. Unfortunately, i forgot to back up my data before doing this. After the PC rebooted, i found that the original drive letter (myBook G drive) disappeared and none of the data is traceable . Now, i see only one partition (D) without any data in the external drive and have no idea what happened during partition. Does it mean the external drive was formatted during the process? Is the data recoverable? Thanks for your help .
