    Help with recovering Vista

    Hello, this was the status of my hard drive before I did something silly
    (xp and vista dual boot)

    15 GB Win xp (primary partition)
    *extended partition*
    85 GB data (logical drive)
    120 GB Windows Vista (logical drive)
    30 GB unallocated

    Using the Disk Management tool in XP, I accidentally deleted Vista, so now it
    looks like this:

    15 GB Win xp (primary partition)
    *extended partition*
    85 GB data files (logical drive)
    150 GB unallocated

    I would like to recover, if possible, the Vista partition. I tried the BootNG
    boot floppy Undelete, but it couldn't find anything there.
    Any thought on this?
    TIA
    Dave

    Hello Biggles77,
    thanks for getting back.
    What you said is correct. Deleting the Ubuntu partition from within XP"s
    Disk Management tool also deleted the Vista partition.
    Why? Have you heard of this before?

    The Vista partition was adjacent to the ubuntu's except for about
    2 GB unallocated space between them.

    Sorry, poor post on my part. Deleting a partition will prompt you for a confirmation that you really want to delete the partition. After reading your post at the above link, it explains that you were deleting the Ubuntu partition and it took Vista with it.
