Lost my Local Disks D and E

Specs: Windows Xp SP2, 256MB
I had partitioned my Hard disk into 3 drives.
Local Disk C, D & E using Windows Xp SP2

I Have installed my OS in C Drive. I had lots of data in my D & E drives. I installed Active Kill Disc S/w and while running it to about 10% I lost my D & E drives.

I also tried to repair My OS using Windows Xp OS but it is unsucessful.

Please Help me out to recover my partitions I have very important data

From the download site....

"Active KillDisk is a quality security application that destroys data permanently from any computer that can be started from floppy CD USB. Active KillDisk Professional conforms to US Department of Defense clearing and sanitizing standard DoD 5220.22-M. You can be sure that once you wipe a disk with Active KillDisk, sensitive information is destroyed forever. "

If you used this program you will not recover your data or anything else. This program wipes DRIVES clean and is not ment for partitions or data cleaning. It wipes the whole drive!

If the data was important to you then you should have made backup copies of it. Your data is lost and can't be recovered. You should have read what killdisk would do BEFORE using it.


Did you interrupt killdisk somehow while it was working?

If you want to try and recover files, I recommend 'GetDataBack' (it's terrific), but the following you can try for free.

PC Inspector (freeware)

Zero assumption Recovery
The demo is limited
It will only recover 'up to' four folders per run
But you can make multiple runs

Mr aegis,
I think I have a similar problem. Pl refer post 172577. Can PC Inspector (free ware) be useful to me? Is it fully free? or a trial version like Zero assumption Recovery software?

Try testdisk as suggested in your other thread before moving on. Also, you shouldn't hijack a thread like this. If testdisk doesn't fix your partition than try Knoppix on it before using recovery software.
