    Hi,

    Yesterday I upgraded my old 60Gb IDE system drive to a 300Gb SATA drive. Decided to install XP from scratch to clean up some junk from old applications, games, .net sdk, etc. Also installed is a 200Gb SATA drive with projects / data / etc.

    The original XP disk i have is old (no sp2 or sp1 slipstreamed) When booting it recognised the new disk, I created a 32Gb system partition (left rest unpartitioned) and went to format. At this point a warning popped up that in order to format the new 32Gb partition it would have to format a 128Gb partition on the data drive.

    At this point I cancelled everything and used true image to clone the original 60Gb drive to the new 300Gb one. I now do have a working system, however my data drive is inaccessible. It shows up as a 128Gb unformatted partition and rest unallocated. No utilities have been run against the drive.

    Can Disk Director recover the data partition for me?
