1TB SATA seagate missing since goback uninstall

  1. please help, i have a HUGE issue at hand. i had recently installed norton goback, and after it not installing correctly, i uninstalled it with the removal utility. after boooting into windows xp (i have a pro and home version on two different drives, my ubuntu linux partition isnt working. im going to live cd it soon) my 1tb drive isnt showing in windows explorer.

    in disk management console it is showing as there, with 100% free and no drive letter. all it says to do is format it and help. i cannot assign it a drive letter.

    i had 300 gigs of data backed up onto this. all of this is either irreplaceable or will be extremely hard to get again. if anyone has any ideas, please help.


    edit - live cd ubuntu 8.04 isnt showing it either. think trying a program to recover a lost partition would work?

    edit2 - gonna try http://www.cgsecurity.org/wiki/TestDisk_Download . wish me luck =/
