Missing sector of my hard drive...
I just got a laptop which has had linux installed on it, on 24GB of the hard drive, and Windows XP on the remaining 16GB. Then being unable to uninstall Linux, he reformatted the hard drive, so that windows XP would reclaim all the space. This didn't work and now there is 24GB allocated to Linux but that can't be seen or accessed by windows. I'd like to get this back, so if anyone could help it'd be much appreciated.
