I wiped my WD 60gb drive with the wipe option in CCleaner. I then used winxp disk management to format and use NTFS everything was great until I realized that half the drive is gone. It seams OK and shows up in xp disk management, but as 31.9 GB NTFS - Healthy. Does not show anything else like unformatted or any other partition. I have it set up as a slave. Have not used it because I want to get back lost GB first. Could the cclean wipe do something that I need to fix after wipe? Any ideas would be helpful. I know enough to screw-up any computer, but I try.

Thanks milljack 

Keep the affected drive DISCONNECTED until you are ready to employ recovery options or else you risk over-writing for good... and definitely do not rebooot with that drive attached; disconnect before rebooting PC.

 

 

Try using both of these free software options.

I'd recommend making a My Documents folder on the other drive/partition instead of leaving it to move the files to the root directory!
