Recovery of an "unallocated" partition

Last response: in Storage

After having used Partition Magic 8.0 on Windows XP, my "data" partition (no OS therein) is now considered as "unallocated" - either user error, or a batch error, I canot tell exactly. Let's assume a user error ...

and of course, my backup is even not worth a eurocent.

Does anyone know of a trustable tool that could make the file system in that partition again available ?

many, many thanks,

This is a brief explanation of what has happened: Data Recovery After Partition Manager Crash.
Well, maybe R-Studio can help. Here is its help, your case is Case 2 Recovery of files that have resided on a data disk with a damaged file system, or on a previously deleted or re-formatted partition.
R-Studio is a pay program, but it'll allow you to estimate chances for file recovery by previewing them. Just double-click several files among Known File Types.

I would like to thank you for your message.

You've helped a lot!
