Pay what you like
Eidos have took a very brave step in marketing today. They are allowing customers to pre order the new Championship manager title from now until the 10th of September, for any amount they see fit. There are some catches though, first of all, it's a minimum of 1p and they charge a £2.50 "transaction fee". While this is still good value at £2.51 for the game, delivered straight to your desktop on the 11st of September, this game is somewhat watered down though, it doesn't have online capabilities. To get that you need to purchase the £29.99 special edition which also comes with a Notebook, Pencil, and a poster.
This could be a good or bad move really, it allows people to try the game out for a low cost, and also attracts attention to the game as it's cheap. I think Eidos are relying on people paying more than one penny though, although I can't see why you would do that.

Just found out that there are 360 directories, 11040 files. 58.2GB
GetDataBack is the only one so far that has shown me all the files.
Anything else so far shows me only 5 files and those are files from the reinstallation.
Time to try Restorer 2000.

Edit: Restorer fails.
Just found a special option for a deep search within Active@ Undelete.
How is the program limited?

just googled free data recovery and came across these:

i'm surprised you formatted both partitions instead of just the windows one

I didn't format.
The Windows recovery disc did. Was hoping that E: drive would stay safe :p
Recuva was the first thing I tried but it said 4 hours remaining for scanning so I gave up on that.

Ok so I found a decent one after trying quite a few after accidentally deleting someone's profile on a work PC when I thought they had left only to find out they were on maternity leave :rolleyes:.

Anyway I can't remember it's name as I have it at work but it was something very similar to this:

This could actually be it as the name rings a bell but I'm not 100% sure.. Worth a crack.

Try Recuva as suggested above, that is pretty good for a free solution.

Active Undelete is my favorite, but it's not free iirc and I think the trial is set to a max filesize.

This app and this man saved my whole backup drive: about 40GB of music and 100GB Movies.

Ouch after scanning the partition for about an hour, it tells me right at the end just before i can press recover, that i need a license. lol.
Not cool Dualist, not cool lol.

When someone says 'available in all the usual places' normally means get a torrent.!
They have the registry hacks in there, but check first.

I left an external HDD plugged up and it formatted it for me a while ago, how unhelpful.

I just used freeware prog, googled, and got most stuff back.

I have never had Windows format another partition during install before though.

Ended up using GetDataBack after torrenting it lol.
Reps for Dualist! lol.
