Oh, I have another finding. which I did format a disk that I think I don't have important files in, I think that might be G:, and when i do G: dir /w, I find some prviews files and also windows files, and a thing called windows.old.

I find it in the new G:drive in file "windows.old"

I think G is what your looking for. Sorry to say but.... deleting the wrong partition is not a smart thing to do. Reinstall afterwards isn't smart as well. Why the heck??????!!!!

You did part of this by accident System Reserved Partition - Delete .
