    hi, i recovered a partition i lost using a program called testdisk. the partition had data files on and was deleted accidentally. i think it's still a dos program so there's no Graphical User Interface, just dos.

    Will this program boot with a test floppy/CD to repair a HDD if on cannot run it from windows?

    do you mean testdisk? it should run fine on windows. i think testdisk re-enables the partition table if it gets deleted, it doesn't fix errors on a drive.
