    Default Recover unallocated Hard drive

    I have two HD's ... First one is an 150gb HD, where I keep my Vista OS, and the 2nd is a 40gb HD, where I used to keep all my private files, photos, programs, ISO, Mp3m, AVI, etc files.
    Now, I by mistake turned my entire 40gb NTFS HD to an unallocated HD, I haven't formatted the HD, I repeat I did not format this drive yet, and I'm not thinking in formatting this HD. Now what is the best step to recover all my info in this 40 gb HD ?

    Default Data Recovery

    Hi,

    Download Recover My Files from www.recovermyfiles.com, or use this link: http://download.getdata.com/RecoverMyFiles-Setup.exe

    The first thing to try is a "Fast Format Recover" search. In the drive selection window, select and search the "physical drive" (you will be able to tell which one it is by the listed size).

    If a Fast Format Recover does not work, next try a "Complete Format Recover". Again, run it on the physical hard drive, and in the file type selection window, use only the default selected file types.

    At the end of the search in "Folder View" of the results screen you should see all your files with their full file and folder structure. Click on the files to preview their content, and if you like what you see then you can purchase a key to save your files.

    Please note that Recover My Files is data recovery software, not drive repair software. It will find your missing files so that you can save them to another drive. It will not however repair your hard drive. Once you happy that you have saved all your important files off the drive, then you can proceed to format it and copy everything back.

    Good luck.
