My harddisk capacity reduced from 500GB to 30 GB

Hi,

I formatted my laptop and changed my os Windows7 to Windows XP. Earlier it was showing 500 GB with 4 partitions. But after installing XP, showing only 30GB with only one partition(C Drive). And no data available in my laptop now.

Please help me out of this issue.

Thanks in advance

try right click the computer then click the management, try to see the disk management if your partition is unlocated and if unlocated try quick format.
