I Installed Partition Commander from Vcom and decided I didnt care for it so

I uninstalled it. Now when I boot system I am missing one of my drives.
My system has a Primary C drive of 30 GIGs in one part. The second drive was

partitioned into 3 drives of 40 Gig, 30 Gig, and 10 Gig, x,y,z.
The X drive, the 30 is now showing in Partition Magic as a HPFS hidden

drive. PM will not let me unhide it. Win XP does not show the drive. Is

there anyway to recover the drive? Would like to not lose information if

My system is:
Win XP Pro
Pent 4 1.8 GH
512 Megs DDR
DSL Connection
