hey bro you can try using partition magic to retrieve back your data. they have a function to do that. however, i suspect that your harddisk is corrupted from unsafe removal. it always happens to me... so i will just write 0 for my harddisk after i recover my data.

hi, you have to actually find a fully functional computer and partition magic allows you to create a boot disc. you have to boot from dos in-order to see what are the files in the "corrupted" harddisk. how to copy is actually the basic dos commands. or you can try a software if i am not wrong its called R-drive or something like this. its a shareware if i am not wrong. it allows you to recover data from a formatted harddisk, provided you have not format via low level format, which is write zero.
