Deleted partition

By cynusps ·
I accidentally deleted the partition and installed XPPro on my main har drive. XP picked up the wrong 20 gig hard drive and I didn't realize it until too late. Is there any way to get any files off of this drive prior to the partition being deleted.All of my Quickbook data was on this drive. Help!!!

Thanks in advance

Any good data recovery program should be able to recover some of your lost data. You could use RecoverNT, Lost&Found, etc.
If your data has not been written over, it can usually be recovered fairly easy. Just make sure you dont't use your computer untill you recover because the swap file can be dynamic and "eat" more data...
You will have to be patient because it can take a very long time when recovering data.

Good luck
