I had my external HD connected to a computer I was fixing to format and reinstall Win XP on. When it booted up to the Windows CD I went to delete the old partition on the drive getting reinstalled on. Not thinking about my external drive being connected I selected it and deleted the partition.
No of of when it's connected to my pc I cannot see anything on the drive. I have Partition Magic 8.0 but it doesn't show any partitions to undelete. It does have an option to create a new partition but not sure if I will lose my data that was on the drive.
I have years worth of data/projects on this drive so don't want to try something that is unsafe.
Can someone please explain the proper way to use Partition Magic to recover this partition or a way I can go about this.
