restore partitions?

By asoft ·
Here is my problem:
I had a PC with 2 partitions, one for system, one for user's data. I needed to reinstall Windows Me on the system partition, however I have rewritten both partitions by using a cloning application Ghost. So now I have only one partition with Windows Me. Is there any way to fully restore 2nd partition to recover the data it had?

restore partitions?

I've heard of this utility on this site: http://grc.com/fix-cih.htm that is for fixing disasters from the CIH virus but from reading the site info it looks as if it will recover partitions. The first few releases only recovered the first partition but I've noticed that the latest release recovers multiple partitions or partitions other than the first one.

I've never used this utility but it sounds like it's worth a try and you can't beat the price.

Good luck!

How valuable is the data? Check out www.ontrack.com. They have a free utility, a commercial utility and a data recovery service(very expensive).

Do not let anyone use the computer until you have had a chance to work on it. The more files that are changed, the less you can recover.
