    Some lessons learned the hard way.

    With your next setup, you may want to make at least 2 partitions, one for your software installations (including OS), the other for your data.

    Of course, nothing beats BACKING UP your data.

    Depends how "bad" the crash is. Sometimes, some section of the hard disk just get spoiled... and the others still usable.

    Ic. SO you can actually access the other paritition if unaffected. Actually to view it positively, I learnt quite a bit from this hard disk crash. Of course, need to thank all the fellow-clubsnappers for being so helpful in answering my queries.

    Your HDD crashed physcically or on software?
    If on software, you may want to try recovering it using software like easy recovery pro..
    I tried, and it works.
    managed to get all my files back (with exception of some excel files).

    The best solution is still: backup, backup, and backup.

    Recently someone just accidentally unleashed a worm in my PC and within seconds, thousands of my JPEG files inside were destroyed and converted to JPEG.VBS with worms insides. So, you can have a dozen of disks or partitions inside your computer, but it won't do any good if you encounter a case like this.
    Get a CD writer and backup important files often.
