rahul:

there are many commercial or even free data recovery tools you can use to try to recover that data.

However, that being said...the chances that you're going to recover that data depend on whether/how much data you've erased from the drive since then and written to the drive since then. The less, the better. You really won't know until you try.  Usually the software will tell you your chances of recovering the data before it finishes trying to do so.

Make sure that whatever disk tools/data recovery tool you get, it can handle the type of partition and version you are using on your HD. for example, some software can't handle NTFS partitions, or can only handle working with NTFS ver 4.0 that came with Windows NT. This is very important, otherwise you could make your situation even worse.

Good tools for beginners are Norton Disk Doctor, Easy Recovery Pro, and Executive Software's Undelete Professional. If you cannot afford to buy one of these, you can often find trial version on the Internet.

Good luck

This freeware app works well for recovering deleted files. Give it a try http://www3.telus.net/mikebike/RESTORATION.html

You should download the file on a different computer or log onto your Me partition. Extract the file and run it to further extract the program to a floppy. Boot back into your XP setup and run the app from the floppy and not your drive to avoid overwriting files. Depending on the type of files deleted you might see the real filename or you might see a modified name like "D001.txt" or "D001.DOC" .
