I accidentally deleted a partition which mainly served as space I put my data, labeled D: drive. The partition wasn't subsequently formatted though, following the delete incident.

Obviously the D: drive doesn't show up as it usually does when I run Windows 7. In the "Computer Management", on clicking the Disk Management I clearly see the space is now labled as unallocated.

question: How do I go about recovering my data. Perhaps what the effective data recovery software I can use to resolve this issue.

Thanks

Here is a link at lifehacker for top 5 data recovery tools

I just recently used testdisk for the first time (on ubuntu) and it worked well at finding info about my drive.

So long as the deleted partition wasn't "extended FS" or whether that new one for Win 7 is, I have never found anything better than http://www.pcinspector.de/default.htm?language=1

And it's free

I'm not completely sure this will work with the partition deleted, but Glary Undelete has worked wonders for me in the past, and it's free.

TestDisk? http://www.cgsecurity.org/wiki/TestDisk. It's helped me when I aborted a resize operation on an NTFS drive (really bad idea).
