I have a a major catastrophy on my hands. Have a 500gB HDD partitioned 3 ways, and was creating a secure zone partition from one existing partition and bang/crash. On re-boot all I have is the partition of 150gB that I was carving up. The rest of the drive has lost its partitions with everything vauable & dear now designated "unallocated space". What am I to do. Or more to the point ,'what advice are u guys going to give me to recover this stuff'. I don't want to jump in and try & fix this without your comments first because what's lost is toooooooooooooo important to even think of losing it. I understand about recovering regular, deleted files but this unallocated space situation has pannicked me. What's the best way to approach this & what is the best software to track down to 'save the day' ?
