    Ok guys here’s my problem. I reinstalled windows on my c: drive, I also have a secondary drive which was partitioned in to three drives. Now when I try to access the secondary drive it says "Drive not formatted, do you want to format?". I need to how to go about getting my files back. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

    Make sure you have all the service packs, or windows probably won't recognise drives that were bigger than 127GB.

    What did you partition the drive with, windows disk management?

    Possibly, but I don't see why. Perhaps you can run some partition recovery software? Not sure what to recommend, other than to shop around. If Acronis make something that does it, I'd recommend looking into them, they make some good data management software.
