how to recover deleted partition in windows vista ultimate

R
#1
Hello,

(My computer configuration: Intel core2duo processor, Intel 945GCNL Mother
board, 512MB RAM, 160 GB seagate harddisk.)

I am from India, I have recently installed windows vista ultimate in my
computer(before I used xp proffessional). I have accidently deleted a
partition about 74.2GB size in which some important data around 12.89 GB
size. I have searched around the net, but the software to recover the data
and save it to a new place are too high for me to spend(demo versions are
only allowing to recover but not to access or save the data).I want to know
whether I can recover the partition as a whole or even the data in it by
myself.

If any body knows the solution of my problem please reply me as soon as
possible.

thankyou,

RAJU(India)

I am so sorry but the only way to recover that data is by either by using
data recovery software or by sending the drive to a professional data
recovery company. The latter will be far more expensive than the former,
although some insurance companies will cover data recovery.

You can Google for free data recovery programs and see if they work.
Unfortunately, I can't recommend any since I use Easy Recovery Pro
(expensive) in my business.

The alternative is to chalk this up as a sad lesson learned about why
backing up is A Good Thing and particularly that one should always back up
before doing something major to one's computer, like installing a new
operating system.

My sympathies,

Malke

raju, I'll add to Malke's good advice above. Even if you are not doing
something major to your computer, you should always have a current
backup of any data important to you. You never know when disaster will
strike. Your hard drive and what's on it is always vulnerable to a
hard drive crash, user error, nearby lightning strike, virus attack,
even theft of the computer.
