I forget exactly what I have done. I tried to experiment with creating a secure zone with true image recovery manager. Afterwards I tried to delete it manually through xp's disk manager (I think) as I didn't want to go through an option of choices before booting into windows. I found afterwards after messing about, it looked like I had deleted all my folders and files from drive d. I went back into the disk manager in windows and I can see a drive which I cannot see with my computer or acronis disk director. Anyway I selected an option to mount this drive onto another drive, now if I then go into disk director and go into the system information directory I can see all my lost folders and files. How do I recover these files anf folders as I still cannot see them in my computer.
