    My computer came with one great big partition, with XP Home installed on it. For four months all my data got stored on that same partition. Then I got partition magic, and decided to make a separate partition for all my files. This turned out to be too small, after I'd transfered all my music, plus my work files to it. I then tried to repartition the drive, taking most of the spare space from the XP drive and giving it to the data drive.
    Just as it started to widen the Data drive, and after shrinking the XP drive, it crashed. Now XP doesn't boot, and my data partition is corrupted too.
    I've been daft and so have no backup of my data, and no partition magic back-up floppies. Is there anyway I can get the data back?

    If it's any help, Ubuntu is also on the laptop, and working fine.

    Do you have the installation CD? If so, "BART PE" may be the solution. I have used it with success. Here is the link: http://www.nu2.nu/pebuilder/

    Thanks, do you mean the installation CD for Windows? or PartitionMagic?
