    I was running on Windows XP SP2 working fine for me. Last week when I connected to the internet while browsing may be some virus came into it and my Laptop (Acer Aspire 5050) start malfunctioning. I decided to install windows XP SP2 again, while installing it started formatting my hard drive without prompting for it in the mean while it got restarted and I lost my whole data. I again repartitioned it and install windows XP some how.

    I have tried many softwares for recovering data like GetdataBack for NTFS, Badcopy and Ontrack.

    Can any one tell me which is the best software for recovering lost data from HDD.

    After 2 installations, you are wasting your time trying to recover anything. It is all gone. Hopefully, you had everything backed up, right?[​IMG]
