I managed to wipe out my partitions when recovering with Norton Ghost.
1 physical disc with
and made system restore from backuped ghost image, it asked which disk to recover and I selected disk 1. Then it proceeded to restore to 8GB partition so I left it there overnight. In the morning the whole disk 1 had been wiped clean and made into 1 large partition except for the recovered operating system.
Symantec manuals say that there are no hope of recovering the data but is that final?
