While re-loading an OS on one of my desktops of which contains 2 hd's I mistakenly quick formated the wrong drive. To bad it was the one with my backed up data! The OS is Xp home. Is there a way I can retrieve the data from the formated drive? HELP!!

Since you performed a quick format, and not a full format, data recovery should be fairly easy.

I recommend that you use a utility such as the file recovery tool in Norton System Works.

You can also check www.nonags.com or www.download.com forfile recovery tools.
