When you installed 7...are you sure that you didn't mess with the XP ddrive/partition at all?

It looks like you are going to have to use a program that can restore data from a drive that has been deleted...

actually let me rephrase...the data is more than likely there...it is just unallocated. f you were to create an NTFS volume on the drive, it wouldn't restore the data...it would just allow you to start wirting data to the drive again.

To summarize....do not do any file operations on the drive and find yourself a data recoverer that can get back deleted data. Cross your fingers and hope for the best

I wish you the best of luck
