Ok I have a 120gb maxtor drive. I divided it up into a two partitions: a 29gb partition for windows and important stuff and a 86gb partition for games and stuff like that. Windows ended up getting corrupted and I deleted the 29gb partition but left the 86gb one and make the 29gb a ext3 format instead of ntfs to run ubuntu. I ended switching back to windows and need the information back from the 86gb partition but windows cant see it. The only way to make it visible seems to be to reformat it. What can I do to get the stuff back since its very important.
I deleted the 29gb and made it ntfs so they both are ntfs but I still cant see the 86gb partition but I can see the 29gb.
