  1. Hi downloaded linux onto my computer and I was unable to get back into windows xp.

    Anyways.. I ended up having a to reformat to get back into Windows XP.
    I was wondering if you can recovery any of your previous files on windows after reformatting?
    I have read somewhere that you can never really delete most files from your computer...
    Is there anyway I can access those files.

    yea download a program called Get Data Back. If your file system is in FAT32 then go and download get data back for fat32, but if its got NTFS on the drive then go with the get data back for ntfs... :grinthumb:
