Palm Data Recovery

I need some help recovering data from the palm desktop. Here is what happened:
I was working on my boss' laptop. Windows 98 has to be upgraded to windows 2000. He has a handspring handheld device which he hasn't used in a year. But he uses the palm desktop software to handle the addresses and the calendar.
Before wiping the hard disk I exported the calendar, addressbook, todolist and the rest. The little I know that it only exported one contact, and one to do item. I believe it was on selected item instead of all.

So the hard disk is wiped, and windows 2000 is installed. Then I reinstalled the Palm desktop, the calendar is all back, but not the address book. Neither the rest.

Has anyone had a situation like this? He really wants that data back-especially the 100-person contact list.

Is there a way to recover that file.

Please help me!!!!

Thanks, Gokalp

You can try using Norton Utilities unerase to scan the harddisk. but since you've installed windows and stuff it probably would have overwritten the data. Chances are very slim.
