Please someone help.. I think I've lots tons of data from my hard drive and I'm not sure how to get it back now. I had 2 hard drives = C: (4GB) and another 250 GB which was partitioned into 3 parts of ~80GB each (D, F, G). I recently got another 250 GB drive. I wanted to install win2000 on it and get rid of my 4GB drive. I booted the computer from the disc, and begun to install win2k on the new drive (with all the other drives still plugged in). When the computer rebooted and it was booting into windows, I got the black screen, chkdsk started running and I started getting a huge list of something or other going on about orphan files being moved to different directories. I didn't know what was happening and I let if go for quite a while thinking it was doing what it was suppose to do. Finally I started getting scared because I realized whatever it was doing, it was touching files which it was not suppose to, because I was installing windows on a whole brand new clean (partitioned, NTFS) drive, and I didn't understand why it was moving/touching files from my other drive! I rebooted the computer right in the midst of what it was doing. Now when I startup windows, I skip the chkdsk, and when I look at the contents of my drive through explorer, ALL those files which it was messing around with, are now missing!! I imagine that if I allow chkdsk to continue, the rest of the files will go missing as well..?? can anyone please help?? where did those files go (were moved to) and how can I restore them??
