The data isgone but you can split the existing partition or create
another partition from free space using Partition Magic.

If you still have the free space you can just create another partition
from it using the Windows disk manager.
Right clcik my computer - select manage -select disk management under
storage. A window opens to the side showing your disks and partition
info. From here you can reformat existing partitions or make new ones
from free space.

Just google something like 'data recovery tools' and you get a lot of useful
links.

Spend the money and buy Partition Magic or else spend the time and backup all
your files and then FDISK and re-install all the software enviornment from
scratch

Too late! Once you have "written" to the hard drive, after erasing a
partiton, it is highly impossible to "recover" any "eraseed partitions".
