So my friend hit F11 during boot-up and accidently ran System Recovery, effectively erasing the entire system. I assume it repartitioned and installed Windows XP. I am hoping a program like File Recovery at http://www.pcinspect.../uk/welcome.htm
or some other free or inexpensive program can help to get the job solved. Since any recovery program needs to be run from a seperate system, will networking work? Either via a crossover ethernet cable or by those special double male USB networking cables? This is a laptop, so I don't want to try to remove the HD and make it a slave.
Any suggestions or comments?
Any good system recovery programs out there?
