I need to restore files from a reintegrated Boot camp beta Windows partition. After the partition was reintegrated into the MAC OS, it was discovered the user had been working on a very important file and was storing it on the Windows partition even though he never used Windows and only works through the MAC OS.

Is there a way to restore these lost files?:

Please I really need to get this file back.

The partition has been formatted. You're not going to recover anything from the Windows partition without shutting down the computer now. Then send the drive off to a recovery expert, spend possibly a couple thousand dollars and with no guarantee of what may or may not be recovered.

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.

Thank you for responding so quickly. The computer was immediately shut down and a ghost image was taken.

We have located a data recovery company. The disc will be sent off today.

Again, thank you.
