Well I did try that. No luck. Probably did something wrong. I could see the drive in "Disk manager" it was "G" but should have been "H". So I know the system was connected to the HD. I just couldn't get the "H" drive to reappear. I found a forum where a guy suggested a program called partition table doctor 3.0. I got it. I ran it and it seemed to find the "H" drive. I wasn't real sure what I was doing (it was 4am & I was pissed off) I ran a thing called "fixboot". It looked like it was searching for cluster & other things on my HD. After 3 hours it was still running. I quit it and rebooted. I could see the H drive now. But no files were in it. Its a 250gig HD & it says I have 232 free space. But no files are in there. I hope I didn't format the drive. The program definitely DID NOT SAY/Warn me of any data loss. So I'm not sure if all the data (about 130gig cry-cry-cry) is gone forever or not. Any thoughts? Anyway to retrieve data? Would doing "system restore" help? If so how do I do it.
