Hi, generally the answer is you can't recover from fdisk. There are comapanies where you can send a disk and they will try to retrieve data off of it, but this is specialized and expensive. If the issue is reinstalling after Fdisk, you can use a 95 boot disk to reload the operating system or if you don't have a boot disk, look at www.bootdisk.com Hope this helps

There is a software tool called Hard Drive Mechanic that can occasionally recover from a deleted partition, but it's a long shot.

A drive recovery service can recover some or all of the data but at a price of $500 and up depending on the amount of data.

Not good news but that's all the news I have!

This option is not available after using Fdisk,unless you did a backup,before proceeding with the process.

The most popular answer is you cant. Although there are several companies out there ranging in price from reasonable to outrageous. It all depends on how big the partition is, what kind it is and if there was anything on it since it was fdisk'ed.
There are also several 'hack' programs out there that allow you to recover or "undelete" files from your hard drive but I'm not sure if they would work with a drive that has been fdisk'ed.
