    Hmm. are you advertising or did you genuinely miss the fact he's using Windows?

    Anyway, a few minutes after posted this thread, i tried out Get Data Back NTFS/FAT, and it worked. since i had not formatted the hard disk, it only took like 10sec to check the drive and agot everything back the way they were.

    Anyway thanks to everyone
