    Partition recovery software - help

    Can anyone recommend a good piece of software - preferably free? I have managed to rescue my RAID drives, after the weekend's overheating issue, but the drive is showing as unallocated. I feel certain that the data will still be there, least ways I hope it is. I would really, really appreciate some help here as I don't relish the thought of having to re-create the virtual machines that should be on the disc.

    If you don't get anywhere with Test Disk, I'd recommend Active Undelete

    http://www.active-undelete.com/undelete.htm

    This may help: "Recovers files from deleted, damaged, formatted or reformatted partitions"

    It's paid-for, about US$80, but really rather good.

    Just had a quick look at Test Disk, but it doesn't mention Windows RAID only Linux. Will it work in W2k8R2 do you know?

    Active@ UNDELETE Software to recover deleted files folders & partitions. Windows XP VISTA 2003 2008.

    Found that one, it's currently scanning the drives for partitions - I'm using the free demo vesion. I'm not really in a position to buy anything though - (no Bursar/purse string holders in, just plumbers & joiners!)
