Hi, My C Drive was formatted accidentailly by someone silly person. They installed Windows XP replacing Windows 2k.

Anyway I amazingly manage to recover loads of data using PC Inspector but it's all in cluster.

For instance when I play a recovered mp3 file called 'cluster 1004556', I get about 5 snippets of different songs.

Is it possible to repair these guys???

What I really wnt to recover are my HP digital photos. I'm finding it difficult to recognise if these files have been recovered. Should I install the HP software? Would that help me to recognise the digital photo files recovered?

The data that PC Inspector recovered does appear to be random. Is it possible to target specific locations of the previous C drive, if you know what I mean?

That of hearing various songs in a mp3 file sounds very very bad, if there is a way to recover that, I don't know it.

If you haven't write over the recoverable datas, maybe you should use a different program to recover. (My suggestion would be Easy Recovery Pro)
From my previous experiences, if your HDD before the format was defragmanted too much the chance of recovery of files completely is very low.
I think as i mentioned above, you should give another program a try and see if you can solve this problem.
