  1. I accidentally deleted my second hard drive. Is there a way to reverse to accident? Preferable Free.

    OS: WinXP installed on HDD1: 40 Gig
    HDD2: 200 GIG - Deleted

    To restore your whole partition, there's a few good utilities out there. Unfortunately, the ones I have used are all payware.

    There is one that is pretty well put together though, and is completely free.

    When you fire it up, it will ask you for your language and then start a wizard of sorts. Choose the last option, "Find lost drive". With any luck, you'll be able to restore it. :)

    If the partition you have deleted has since been repartitioned and written to since you've deleted your data, then recovery chances become very slim.

    or you could just download Winhex and that will solve all your issues even if there are no hard drive flags on the drive you will still be able to get most of the info back.
