    I have a problem and wonder if there is a way to fix it. I have reinstalled Windows on a HP machine. HP has a nice recovery mechanism to restore everything back to the default. Before I did it I saved everything on a mobile harddisk.
    The first time I restored Windows it looked like the recovery did not work although it took about 1 hour. The next day I tried again after deleting the partition and it worked perfectly. The problem I found out when triing to restore my data is that the recovery has restored Windows to my mobile harddisk the first time. That way I lost all my data. My question is if there is a way, maybe with Acronis tools, to get my data back.

    The situation at this moment is that I have working harddisk with one partition formatted NTFS with a default HP Windows XP setup (2GB). I used to have a single partition NTFS compressed. There was about 30GB of data on it and I like to restore the last 5GB

    Thanks in advance.
