    First my situation:

    During a format I had an external usb drive connected and not thinking deleted the partition. I have not formatted the drive just deleted the partition - there is a lot of important information on this drive that I need back.

    Important: This is an EXTERNAL USB drive (250GB).

    My Questions:

    1. Is the data definately still on the drive and able to be recovered?

    2. Is this the best/proper software to accomplish this?

    3. Is there a link to walkthrough documentation that will enable me to do this very quickly/effectively?

    I am trying to be lazy - I just want to be very blunt, to the point about what I need to accomplish.

    Thanks in advance,

    Thank you very much for the response.

    Both your response and the software are exactly what I was hoping for. I have already put in a purchase request.

    Being able to recover 200GB of absolutely crucial material is invaluable, the low cost of the product makes it an absolute must in my opinion.

    Fantastic product, 3 thumbs up.

    Thanks again,

    What if the partition was formatted and a new partition was created?
    Can I retrieve back the older partition content ?

    Hello hitu,

    Thank you for your interest in Acronis Partition and Disk Managing Software.

    I'm afraid that in this case it will not be possible. Acronis Recovery Expert included into Acronis Disk Director Suite 10.0 will not detect any lost/deleted partitions on your hard drive if a new partition was created in the same place.

    Thank you.
