Hi all,

I use Partition Magic to create partition but after pc is restarted, an error occured and windows can`t load. I took this hdd and make it slave with other pc. The hd can now recognized by windows but when I click to enter the partition this message "Disk is not formatted" appear.

I don`t want to format it.....too many important data for my life.

someone can help me to solve this. How can I can get back my data without formatting this hard drive.
