    Last night i was moseying through the net when suddenly everything stopped. Ctrl-alt-del wouldn't work..nothing. Tried restarting it and found that it wouldnt even boot! It briefly mentioned something about a NDFS (?) file missing.

    I've since set up an older HD and reinstalled XP on to that and after doing all the necessary driver updates etc i though i'd try to set up the messed up one as a slave HD to see if i could still access all the date on there. To my horror all i get now is an empty HD with a 10GB Total Size (when it is meant to be 30GB) of which 7BG is free!!

    Please help! I have lots of important stuff on there and desperately want it back.

    PLEASE! :(

    BTW:

    It is (was) a Western Digital Ultra ATA/66 HD.

    Currently recovering my software from a very messed up HD. I would HIGHLY recommend the app called GetDataBack if anyone else experiences problems like mine...its been a life saver!

    And thanks for your help there Zedric, much appreciated.
