    Unhappy Recovering formatted partition?

    hi heres the situation..i was locked out of my windows xp (originally on one main C: ntfs drive) so i had no other choice but to make a new partition (using ranish partition manager) using some of the free space on the drive. all looked well, i proceeded to install xp on the new empty partition. the system booted up - and my c: was empty!! it shows as having 100% free space, i try downloading a file to it and it works as a normal NTFS partition.

    is it possible to recover anything? i would really appreciate any help. thanks

    Default Format Recovery

    You data shouls still be there and I think you will be able to get it all back.

    Download Recover My Files here: http://download.getdata.com/RecoverMyFiles-Setup.exe and run a "Complete Format Recover" on the drive letter. In the file selection list, use the default selected file types only (dont add any more file types to the search).

    Please let us know the results.

    Default Data Recovery

    At present the CSV file is only a record of your search results. It cannot currenlty be used to load the search results (this will be added in a future version). If you have closed it down then you will need to run the search again.

    When performing data recovery, as soon as you see the files that you are looking for, save them as soon as you can. You dont want subsequent computer use to write to the drive and overwrite files that could have been recovered.

    excellent. the program has recovered everything important and (as far as i can see) nothing is corrupted.

    thankyou so much for this program, whoever designed it, and thanks GDH for your help!
