Re: Recover data from a partition
I reccomend getting hold of a linux live CD like Ubuntu live, booting into this which will normally let you see just about anything on any hardrive (unless it's completely dead).
you should then be able to copy it over to your other partition or USB drive then you can boot back into windows and format.
He who has never failed has never attempted anything worth succeeding at.
