recently i've benn trying to install linux backtrack on a usb key as a persistent install, but while tryng to partition the usb drive i accidentally repartitioned my d. drive, the one used for data storage.
i had allmost 350gb of data on it.
i'm still able to boot windows from the other hd.

The best tool I've used for this is getdataback. It isn't free, but you can scan the HD with the trial or demo version, and if it sees your files and folders, you can register it so you can then copy those files to another location. Make sure you don't write anything to the affected HD before having recovered the files, as you might otherwise overwrite them. You will probably need the ntfs version, even though at the moment your partition is listed as a FAT partition.
