: I have come to a great confusion. I have a 40 GB hard drive. I had 3 partitions C,D,E. C - 20 GB. D,E-10 GB. I wanted to install Linux. So I copied all content of E into D. Then I deleted E using fdisk . Then I wanted to delet D. So I copied all the data on C. But as the files were too big..My PC hanged. And when I restarted the PC..all the partitions were lost. And more surprise came when I inserted DOS Disk to re-install WIN-98. It showed that my Hard Drive is only 10 GB. The partition I deleted. 30 GB LOST !!!! Then I installed WIN 98 on the C drive which is now only 10 GB. Plese tell me how to recover my lost data and lost partotions...plz plz plz help me ASAP..

I think that the best you can expect is to get your disk capacity back by completely erasing the drive with the HDD maker's diagnostic utility (the erase function MAY be called 'Low Level Format"). Then fdisk, format and all should see all of the disk.

If there is any hope at all to recover your files a good place to look for help is:

IF DIY doesn't work - profesional data recovery may be required (VERY expen$ive).

Good Luck,
