Default Help find lost partition thanks to partition magic!!

Ok.. I give up I need some help with this...

Several Problems!

I installed Partition Magic and Boot magic...

I have one 160 GB hard drive and since my PC is an Acer the drive came partitioned when I got it for two 80's
SO...
I installed Partition Magic and tried to partition the second one and it said it did and had to restart... now it's gone and I cannot find it or the other. I just have my C drive. So I am "missing" 80 GB of space, how do I find it and all the files on it???

I also installed Boot Magic which now dual boots my pc... how the heck do I stop it from doing that ?? I only have one OS and that's all I want now and there was nothing on the second one so...

Everything screwed up so I figured I would just do a system restore to a couple of days ago before I installed any of it... so all it did was remove my access to the Partition Magic and Boot Magic because they were installed on my second partition... bad I know...

So can anyone please help me with this???
I want the boot magic to stop from offering the dual boot since I dont have access to the program anymore and I want my "missing" stuff.


Please help!

What did you do exactly?
You had 2 partitions (80+80)?
Did you delete the second one? Or did you format it?

You probably played around with PM without knowing what to do. What were you trying to do?
