Re: Partition gone
I really hate to help people with Win Jerry Lewis Pro. That said, there are an awful lot of really great data recovery tools out there.
I would quit trying to do anything with that partition and stay off Win and let the box run.
Do a search of recovery tools. The good ones are LiveCDs with a linux base and lots of recovery tools on board.
Maybe others could give you recommendations but I am just a noob at this and only done any thing like that once.
All I will say is that it is amazing what you can recover.
It may be that the tools that you need are in the reops and you could install them and use them without rebooting. Every time you reboot makes recovery a little harder. Every time you try to look at the partition make recovery a little harder. Get a good tool and turn it loose on it.
