I have an 80GB hard drive with windows XP installed. The other day while downloading some song I went to the washroom when I came back my pc was restarting. When windows was about to load it restarted again. Since then everytime I try to start the computer it restarts when windows is about to appear. The drive was not partitioned. A friend suggested partitioning it and re installing windows as not to loose the info. After I did this when loged into the new windows it showed that 40GB was used on the drive but I could not find the folders. I purchased a new 200GB Hard Drive. And had a friend install a new version of XP and partition it 30GB and 170GB with the old 80GB drive as a slave. When I Boot up the system it shows total 80gb on the old drive with 40gb used but I can't find the folders. I do a search for pictures and or music but nothing on my old drive comes up on the search but the properties says something is there. This drive hold alot of personal familiy picture and videos I really need to access. Is there a recovery system I can get (hopefully for free) to allow be to transfer my old lost info onto my new drive? Thanx.
