    pc has 2 drives in it. c: and d:. i was installing xp pro on c: and during the install the process asked me if I wanted to delete partitions. I selected the wrong one (d: ) and deleted it. I did not format it. Is there a way to get all the data off that drive? I tried PC Inspector File Recovery but that program does not get all the files. It seems to pick up only on directories and nothing else. This d: drive is in a pc that has win2k pro with SP4 and windows no longer sees this drive. any help would be appriciated

    You need to get a program that is able to recover the whole partition not only the directory

    Hello,
    I suppose using Data Recovery tool - Partition Table Doctor or DataRecoveryWizard.
    It is imho the best one among it's family. Easy to use and powerful.
    It actually never failed me before. Recommended!
