Help me recover my documents after partitioning!

I just did a full WinXP reinstall. In the process, I took an 80 gig drive which was partitioned to 10/30/40 gig partitions and repartitioned it to 10/10/20/15/25 partitions. Unfortunately, that 40 gig partition held my "My Documents" holding a bunch of Word documents spanning the years and a lot of digital photos that are irreplaceable.

I've tried a few file recovery programs with limited success (recovered around 20% of my files) however I think the problem is the repartitions have split a lot of the files across two or more partitions. Is there a way I can recombine these partitions and try the file recovery programs again??

R-Studio. See my comments on it here for more info. It seems to have worked for others.

I don't know if it'll work for your particular problem, but I've had good results with R-Studio, too. Definitely worth a try. Good luck!

Thanks for the responses. I've tried R-Studio with limited success. I guess I'm just wondering if maybe I'll have more success if I combine the partitions back into one big partition??
