Well, I caught windoze off guard.
Then I installed TestDisk (Wiki Page)
, and it was so simple and it went so smoothly that it made me feel like crying (although I didn't). The link is to the Wiki page which will walk you through the basic scenario and which also contains links to other scenarios. What could be more simple than that?
I tried burning a Knoppix Live CD and using it to recover the files (before I discovered TD), but it kept hanging during boot.... whatever.
-= Arc =-: I had a look at the descriptions of the progs you'd recommended, and it said nothing there about partition
recovery, only deleted files' recovery. But I didn't test them, so I can't be sure.
Is there a place on G2G where you can recommend software? TestDisk is free and it works great!
Anyways, thanks to all o'y'all who tried to help,
