I have enormous computer problems. It all started a few days ago. When I initially installed Vista I did so on a 20GB partition of my 300 Gig hard drive. The rest of the drive was an extended partition with four logical drives. Over time Vista grew and eventually the partition became too small to house Vista. I used a partition manager tool to resize the partitions and give Vista a 100GB partition. The problem is that when I did so the largest partition on my Hard Drive, containing VITAL data, was ruined.
Before I did the repartitioning, I backed up the entire contents of my computer onto a separate using the Vista Computer Backup utility. How that I have the Hard drive partitioned correctly, I don't want to have Vista Backup reformat and repartition the hard dive as it once was (with only 20 gig for vista) and I know of no way to pick and choose data. Further, windows seems to have saved it all into some sort of inaccessible archive. What should I do? I need this data...
