Accidentally deleted the external drive during WinXp Setup.
Posted on 2006-03-30
I gave my external drive to a friend so he could recover lost files fast after a format-XP setup.
During the removal of his partition he accidentally deleted my external drive !!!!!!!
Now i plugged it in my computer and there is no indication that it exists...
There is nothing in "My Computer". I can find it through Device Manager, it shows that the space in unallocated.
From what i understand the data is there but this thing probably destroyed the MBR of the FAT/NTFS.
I've tried :
PC Inspector smart recovery. NOTHING it can see only the drives win explorer can see.
Testdisk 6.3 ----> NO PARTITION found or selected for recovery.
Partition Table Doctor 3.0 ---> Currently working with the demo, didnt find anything
but it says that it might be the MBR... I need to buy it first.
160Gb of non backedup data are going to be lost... Please help.
Thanks in advance.
