    Hello, I was cracking my ipod and was using a program that deletes partitions, called AefDisk32. Well I forgot to put the drive # in. I did this
    aes /delete:1
    and that deleted partition one on my D: disk.

    I should have went aes 3 /delete:1 (the ipod)

    SOOOOO is there any way to get it back? Windows says its unallocated right now. Help. Thanks

    Go Start > Run - Type "compmgmt.msc"

    In the management console under Storage, select "Disk Management". This will bring up the status of your hard drives. You will no doubt see a portion of Unallocated space.

    [This is from memory, so names may be different]

    Right click the Unallocated space, and select "Create Partition", or "Create Primary Partition". You will then get the option to choose the size, and drive letter, the defaults should be the full allocation, and d:\. Select OK.

    I can't remember whether this asks you to format your drive, but if not, go to My Computer, open D:\ and it will say you need to format it, select ok, then in the Format box, make sure the file system is NTFS and press START.

    As for any data, it won't be retrievable.

    Try partition magic and see if it is able to retrieve data from the unallocated partition. Or is able to create a partition without you losing your data on it.
