    Ok so my computer has 2 hard drives. First one is the C and is used for windows, program files ect. My second hard drive i use to store my music, pictures, videos, documents etc. So i had both hard drives in there running fine, and i decided i would reformat the C drive and put windows on it again (figuring all the data on the second drive would be fine) I was using XP and i put XP on it again, but when everything was installed it said that my second hard drive was unformatted.
    So ive tried a bunch of programs to recover the data, with no luck. I can see that all the data is physicly still on the drive, i just think that the partition information or whatever got screwed up somehow. My friend told me that i would most likely need to recover the data to another hard drive, which shouldnt be too much of a problem, i just cant figure out how to do this. (i am looking at about 60gigs worth of data i need to recover, and the only program i was able to find that would recover the data charged something like 100$ a gig, and theres no way im paying 6000$ for my hardrive back)
    If anyone can help me it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks :)

    I use Easy Recovery, it's about $500 but has no limit on the amount of data you can recover. It can recover data from a drive you've quick formatted/deleted the partitions from, or that has a corrupt FAT/MFT. Then again that's probably more than you want to spend :)
