Please Help Me! to format my hard drive
I have formatted several computers in the past, with no problems what so ever, but today was different.I was trying to format my hard drive and install a fresh copy of Windows XP. Well, when it came to the screen that asks if I want to repair or delete the drive, I clicked delete as I uaually do. Well, I have 2 hard drives on my system, drive C: which my OS is on and drive D: which I had all my photos and music and even important papers. Well it started to run the format, I just noticed down at the bottom of the screen that it was formatting drive D: :eeek: so I hurried and pressed the cancel button. Then had to start over again to format C:, this time paying closer attention. Well, everything went fine this time with the install but when I went to check my drive D: It was gone!!! All my important stuff and priceless photos that I had saved were all gone! So I need advice Please Help ME! I want these back!

Hi Lisa,

You can try to recover your data from free data recovery tools at
or if you are not comfortable doing it yourself, you may consider professional data recovery help which is very expensive.
