Re: please help..iam begging U please..

Use it as a secondary hdd and boot from some other machine. Then run a recovery program on that hdd.

it is safe u transfer all your thing to other hard come u didn't tranfer to other harddisc ( not in the partition )...
Did you partition the HDD while the system partition is in use?

.. and is the partition software original? 😛

Don't worry.. If you did not format, the data is quite easy to recover 😀
