    From what I understand about most file systems, as soo as the fiel table is lost, or overwritten, you can't get the data back.
    So, if you "Accidentally" partition your drive, then the best thing to do is unparition right then.

    Well, the DATA would still be there on your drive, but you wouldn't be able to tell where one file stopped, another started, or what segments were leftover from partially-overwritten files...

    It would be a real pain in the ass to try to get anything back from a disk that lost it's file tables, but if it was straight ASCII or something, and you knew a string to search for, you could probably do that and figure out where the file starts and ends just by looking at the content.

    I've never heard of an "un partition" but I've heard of a "re format"!

    eeeek

    jparker... how could u "accidently" partition your drive... frankly if u make a mistake then u deserve to lose your data as far as im concerned

    but im sure that Forensic scientists have ways of diving thru your data to a certain extent... once the data allocation tables are screwed u do have big problems, but then again the data is still there. if u really want to stop someone reading your drive in a hurry and dont care about keeping the drive.. why doing u just open the casing and hit it with a hammer ..

    trust me.. those ding's in the disk's surface arnt good



    Don\'t blame the hardware, dont blame the OS, chances are its your fault
