I have 2 SATA drives in my PC. Drive 1 has XP and Drive 2 has Vista. I used to get a menu asking which OS I wanted to boot to but I no longer have it. I had to reformat and reinstall my XP drive. I figured I could still get to my Vista drive but that is no longer the case. It shows up in My Computer but shows no size information - almost like it was reformatted. However, when I use an eval version of EASEUS I can see and recover most (if not all) of the drive. Basically, my questions is: How do I make this drive bootable or viewable again? All my music and photos are on it and I need them.

I just went into My Computer -> Computer Management and the drive shows up as follows:
128.00 GB Healthy (Active) 468.17 GB Unallocated
When I click on the Healthy part and click properties I am told that the drive is not formatted.
At no time did I reformat this drive.
if the recovery program can recover your data, just do that first and then work on getting it bootable. once u got ur data, making a mistake will be less hazardous. also just because the program can see it, doesn't mean it will work once it extracts it out. it does sound like ur vista drive got a format during ur reinstall.
