As I was trying to merge my two partition with Partition Magic 8.0, I found, after the merge, one of the partition all gone. it says "unallocated" and I didnt try to allocate that again.
Windows system restore says "this kind of partition changes cannot be restored".
I had important data on that partition. what can i do any help would be great.
Thank you.

I suggest you pay money and go to ask help from a data recovery expert.

Normally when you merge partitions with PQMagic it puts the files from the second partition in a folder on the first partition. However, if it didn't and you have not over-written the Unallocated space, you can find an old version of Norton's version of Check Disk and run from a command prompt, it will find and allow the restore of previously available partitions.
There is also a company that has a product (EASEUS) that does specific things such as recovering deleted partitions.
Which provides EASEUS Partition Recovery - Free.
