A while back I imaged my XP laptop (prior to installing the Vista beta on it) to an external hard drive.
Then I used a partitioning utility to delete my XP partition. When I went to install Vista, it told me that there was still an OS on my hard drive!!! Checking, I found that I'd deleted the partition with the backup on it!
rather than the OS partition. The partition tool named the drives differently than Windows did.
Recovery tools recovered the partition, but the image was corrupted and unrecoverable.
