    Guys , I was Formatting the C drive the Other day . But when I got OS installed finally..I found my 'E' Drive was missing , Which had all the important softwares in it. I guess that also got formatted.
    Are there any steps to retrieve the Lost DRIVE ?

    1. I had "two" OS earlier installed, Now I have only "one".
    2. I formatted C drive and continued installing the new OS in that.
    3. After installing i formatted F drive , in which other OS was present.

    Now I got my E drive Formatted but dont know how.. HELP !

    now if u find any drive is not yet asinged a letter, then just right click on it to asign a drive letter...


    but if u can see the driver but u feel the content is missing then bro u have to work hard with Data recovery softwares like http://www.stellarinfo.com/ to scan the HDD to recover data...

    also u havnet mentioned the OS.. see if u r running Windows 98, u cant view/read NTFS partition.. also if u were in Linux some partition may not be accessible by Windows....

    U can recover ur imp s/w....but then u will need another HDD to recover the s/w....u can use stellar pheonix s/w to recover the stuff....but now do not write anything on the drive..else u mi8 loose some of data....

    first now do one think...d/l stellar pheonix frm its site (will be demo)...adn check for lost partitions and s/w using it....see how much u can recover...then u can get the full version and recover....
    CAUTION: U should not recoverto same HDD.

    Heylo Saurav,wizloz !

    Dude I got four drives .C,D,E,F . As i lost my E drivee. I renamed the "Automatically formatted E drive " as 'I' drive.
    I use the Software you guys told and i got some folders from that Drive. But problem is they are not active. I mean the Pic recovered is not opening.
    Even video files are not opening.The Powerpoint Presentations,Excel files are not supported by office now.
    What should I do now ?

    Waiting for your reply .
    Chow !

    ooppsss nothing much can be done now.. Steller works for most of us (Demo Wont do, u need a full pro version)..

    u may google for other software like Steller regarding HDD data recovery... try with different softwares, they may work out...

    ur opitons are less... only to get a HDD recovery software and try to get the data back... u have to try different softwares to see which works for u...
