    I am in it up to my neck now! I did a file and settings tranfer to a backup drive then did a reinstall of XP. I selected quick format and after it started I noticed that it was formatting the wrong drive. I unplugged the drive before it even got to 1% approx 3 secs. Is there an easy way to recover or undo the format?
