I was installing a fresh copy of Windows, when I wasnt paying attention and accidentally deleted the wrong partition(which was my full 80g hard drive that has everything on it!!). Luckily, I noticed what I had done BEFORE I formatted it. So now the partition is an unpartitioned 80g, and I installed a fresh copy of xp on the RIGHT hard drive i meant to install it on in the first place! Can anyone help me? That hard drive is very important to me, and I know there has to be a way to get it back. For right now I am leaving the unpartitioned drive alone until I get some feedback. So if anyone can help, suggest a EASY to use program, or give any support, IT WOULD BE VERY MUCH APPRECIATED! Thankyou very much!

Thanks for replying and giving me some input. I downloaded the program and I tried to run it, but I don't understand it at all. And am I going to have to have an extra 80gb of space on another drive in order to recover all the data? Because I don't have that space. Any help there? Thanks again! I appreciate it! :eek:

The answer to not enough space for the data is easy - hook up another drive. If you can't understand it then hopefully somebody else will come up with an easier solution.

Ranish partition manager is able to display changes to the partition table in realtime - with basic knowledge about disks and partitions you could restore the deleted entry easily.

That is i you have the knowledge or the will to research.

Active@Partition Recovery is a great utility which (from my experiences) can always repair this kind of problem.
