Hello again. I still don't know crap about computers so bare with me. I recently was trying to reformat my whole hard drive and i accidently installed windows xp twice on to my computer. My friend who knows alot about computers helped me or so he says. So what i did was go to the windows xp setup page and pressed enter to continue. Then i pressed f8 to accept the windows xp licensing agreement. THen i selected a partion with windows installed and pressed d to delete an existing partion. Then problem was that I had a partion called E, C, and D. I also had a drive called f and g which were my extra hard drives that i store stuff onto. So i ask my friend what partion do i delete. he said to delete e and d first and then delete c and reformat. I asked if this would delete my f and g drive stuff that i had stored and he said no. So i go ahead and do this and i successfuly install a fresh new windows xp. As i am going through my computer i noticed it dosen't recognize the f and g drive. so I go into administrative tools and then to computer management. Then i continue to disk management. I look for the two drives and all i see are the two drives and they say unpartitioned. So the question is did he have my delete all my [bleep] that was stored on my two extra drives. When i was partitioning the drives they said e and d not f and g, so did my comptuer recognize them as E and D, and i went ahead and partitioned them and lost all my stuff?
