I just tried to use Partition Magic 7.0 and instead of doing what I wanted, it just deleted the drive letter of one of my partitions. I have a 400g harddrive which is partitioned into C,D,E,F. It was a work computer, so it was already partitioned that way. Anyway, I wanted to incorporate D into C and make C bigger. Well, it didn't do any of this, and just deleted the partition letter for drive F. The F drive doesn't show up under My Computer anymore, and when I go to Disk Management, it shows the drive (System type, status, capacity, free space, etc.), but it won't let me do anything with it. It just says "Unknown Partition". If I right click on it, everything is gray'd out except "help" and "delete partition". So it looks like the partition is there and there are files on it, I just can't access it. I think the problem was with the harddrive being so big for this version of Partition Magic, but at this point it doesn't matter.
Is there anyway to recover this partition and it's contents? I know ultimately I may just have to reinstall windows, but I'd rather not have to.
