I accidently deleted the partition on my removable hard drive when reinstalling win XP (don't ask!!) Is there any way I can retrieve this data. if I plug the drive in now it just says it has not been formatted. i had backed loads up onto this disk but I mainly want to retrieve photographs from my digital camera

If you've deleted the partition you could risk it by buying some data recovery software from the net, or going to a data recovery place. Deleting a partition isn't too easy to get back - just don't use the drive any more or you might lose any data you may be able to recovery. One of our sponsors is a data recovery place (check the disklabs link on the right), they may be able to help if you go down that route.

I presume you mean that the photos are on the hard drive, and not on the camera any more?

there are some programs that can recover lost data but they arent free, also there are companies that specialise in data recovery
