Re: Data recovery...
You can try using File Scavenger 3.0, I have used it to successfully recover data when from a USB stick after pulling it out by mistake and not using the eject hardware thingy. Of course you have reinstalled XP, and if you formated the hard drive then the risks increase that you will have the data overwritten.
This risk increases as time goes on....
AMD Athlon 64, 2200 (11x200) 3700+,ASRock 939S56-M, SiS 756 AMD Hammer,NVIDIA GeForce 6600LE, 2048(DDR SDRAM), Maxtor 5A300J0 300GB 5400RPM, Ultra ATA/133)
Time tells all, but if the moment in time passes and you miss it, then you will remember it for ever!!
