Can you boot your windows xp and get inside. Also did you get all your partitioned drives as a single drive now

I am not sure that booting is a good idea. I do know, however, that you can buy undeleting programs. Ashampoo, for example, make one, but I have never used it and cannot vouch for it. It might be worthwhile taking your hard drive out, putting it into a case and using it as an external hard drive. Then run the undeleting program on somebody else’s computer. The hard drive enclosure link was the first I found; I cannot say it is better or worse than other makes of hard drive enclosure, nor whether you can buy one locally for a similar price.

That's good den pravin you can use many recovery tools available in market for eg:Recuva which will get you all files (Remember not as a folder) so you have to restore as your wish

Recovery programs come in different flavors and have their own limitations. If the data was really important, you can get it recovered from some data recovery center, although they charge heavily.
One thing is a must that you should not copy new things or make much changes else the recovery becomes almost impossible.

I prefer to use testdisk under linux system. You can even run it from a live/usb boot. I recovered a lot of stuff and lost partitions using this tool...

Welcome to the Ranch Testdisk is another promising suggestion; it has the advantage that it can cope with ext4 and other non‑Windows® file systems.

Hi Pravin

You can use data recovery software to recover data from deleted partition. Using this tool I was able to undelete corrupt partition and it has the capacity to recover computer files in all situations. So, first you can download trial version of this software, evaluate recovery results and then purchase complete version of this software.

You can use FDISK (Command Line based Utility) or Disk Management Utility (Graphical Interface) for this purpose.

There are also 3rd part utilities which can achive this, such as Norton PartitionMagic, which I have used personally.

You can view http://www.techyv.com/questions/help-me-disk-management for more information.

I hope it would be of some help.
