I recently formatted my 80 gig western digital hard drive, and reinstalled windows on it. The problem im having is that my 250 gig maxter, which is my storage drive somehow got its file system either corrupted or deleted when i formatted my hard drive. its a IDE hard drive and i would like to know if anyone of you guys could guide me through repairing it i would be forever grateful.
