Recover from HDD crash

\015 I experienced a system crash and was able to copy the data from the recovery partition onto a dvdCan I recover my operating system (Windows XP Media) and original files from the data on the recovery partition? If so, how? What programs to use?I do not have copies of recovery CD's.\015

Answers :

Can the PC boot at all? If not, what about taking the drive out and connecting it to another, working PC as a slave and trying to copy the data off that way. You could do this internaqlly or externally depending on the cables / interfaces available to you.

\015\012You should be able to access your recovery partition directly on the PC and use it to reformat the drive. Unless the drive is physically damaged this is the best option.
\015\012
\015\012If the drive is physically damaged, then you will need to try to remake the recovery partition on a new drive - this could be next to impossible as you will need to know how the drive was partitioned and get it exactly right. The recovery partition was probably hidden and may have had a vendor specific format ID. Not impossible to do, but a lot of messing about in the low-level technical areas of disk reconstruction, and far too technical to decribe here.
\015\012
\015\012Have a look on the PC vendor's website and see if they can provide recovery media for you - they can often do this for a small charge to cover postage fees.
