Partitioned Drive, now it's giving me errors?
So here's the story. I have a 320gig hardrive that I partitioned into C and D (C for programs, D for My Documents (basically all my music and stuff that takes loads of space)). Now my D partition was getting particularily full, so I decided to shrink C (there were 160 gigs left) and make D bigger.
I open up Paragon Partition Manager, tell it to do it's thing. It reboots, changes the disk size in it's boot mode program, and tells me it has encountered an error about 90% of the way through. It reboots..I go check my drives...and my D drive now appears as unformatted...with the same amount of space as before (130 gigs) while my C drive did shrink.
How do I get my D drive back?!?

Good thing you did a backup prior to making a major change like this right?The propeller is just a big fan in front of the plane used to keep the pilot cool. When it stops, you can actually watch the pilot start sweating.

So I used the testdisk utility that Bill suggested, and we got a win and a lose! The win part is that my Data partition is still intact! The lose part is that I had to reformat my C partition for it to recognize the Data partition again. Not so bad since it's been a while since I've done this.
Thanks for all the help! Glad to have myself back and running!

Now would be a good time to develope a back up planThe propeller is just a big fan in front of the plane used to keep the pilot cool. When it stops, you can actually watch the pilot start sweating.

I'm guessing the best route until I buy my new computer would be to get an external hard drive?

Actually, since you just did a fresh install - now would be a really good time to clone/make an image of your current drive
Can do that to an external or internal drive...The propeller is just a big fan in front of the plane used to keep the pilot cool. When it stops, you can actually watch the pilot start sweating.
