Corrupt/missing data fat32 need recovered


hey,
i have a maxtor 250hd split into 3 partitions, 50, 30, and 150. Recently i put the drive back into a windows machine and diskcheck ran during the boot process of win2k, and started checking through the 150 partition,
This was my video partition, and now all my videos are corrupt/ not readable. I think it is because the partition data table has been deleted.
Anyone no any good programmes to fix it? cos 60 bout $110 seems rather steep to get my videos back

Thank you

ryan

From the console or xterm session type;

$ locate testdisk
/usr/sbin/testdisk

$ locate photorec
/usr/sbin/photorec
