So, i recently installed vmware - made a windows xp install and mounted a shared partition in it, so that both my ubuntu and windows could have access to it.. Then i restarted my computer and the partition is gone.

I cant open vmware because the isntalled windows xp was on a file that was in the partition that is missing so i cant see it there either..

I had a lot of important stuff on this partition, what can i do.. I really need help, my exams are in 4 days and my preparation is on this partition as well :S ..

hope you can help me, sincerely Tobias F. Petersen
