  1. Hi all !

    I was installing WinXP and forgot USB 512MB key in USB20 port. And when choosing partitions I mistakenly choosed D to delete this USB key one. When I realized that I quickly turned off computer and pull of the key.

    Now I would like to know what should I do to get the data back, if there is such possibility. I don't know exactly what FileSystem is on USB20 keys in WinXP and if Master File Table was deleted, but I can get THE SAME 512MB Kingston drive and take the same scenario as to compare data on the disk.

    I would be thankful for any software which can solve it, I know diskprobe but it is very low system software to play with ....

    THANK YOU for any response.
