Accidentally Deleted External HDD using DiskPart

Q: Accidentally Deleted External HDD using DiskPart

Hi guys,

I accidentally deleted a whole external drive using the DiskPart.
I did not use clean, i used the "Delete" itself.
Please tell me I can recover it.

A little more info:

I used Select Disk
Select Partition
Delete Disk #
Is there any way I can recover it?
MiniTools isn't working for me...

Thank you

Misread the drive label and deleted the partition on an USB external 80GB SATA drive. Nothing else has been done to the drive.

I did this when using Macrium Reflect Rescue disc.

I know I've seen mention of a program that can recover the partition table but I've not found it yet.

I tried EASUS Data Recovery Wizard but that didn't do it. I thought maybe Paragon had something but I've not had any luck so far. Any help appreciated. Thanks

Hi, I accidentally deleted the volume on my 3rd hard drive and now my Windows Vista PC won't even recognize the drive. How can I fix this?

The problem started when I put my old Barracuda 160 gig drive in a usb external case and couldn't get it to work until I put the jumpers on 7-8. The problem was, it was asking me to format the drive which was full of files which I wanted to retrieve. Through a series of now obvious mistakes, I first shrunk the volume backwards, I meant to shrink only 50 MB but deleted all but 50 MB and then stupidly deleted the entire volume.

What I need now is to at least be able to have my PC recognize the drive again and to be able to restore the full volume but would ideally like to still be able to retrieve the data, if that's even possible at this point. Also, why does, or did my computer only recognize this drive in the 7-8 jumper configuration? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hello everyone,

My apologies if I have posted this in the wrong section. I am in the middle of a major panic attack and am trying my best to stay calm to get some help.

This is my situation ->

My Western Digital 1 TB Hard-Disk had 3 partitions.
i) C: Around 150 GB (operation system -> Formatted)
ii) D: Around 450 GB (Used around 250-300 GB)
iii) E: Around 350 GB (Used around 200 GB)

I had formatted my C: Drive to install a new operating system when I ran into some issues with MBR/GPT conflicts. I read a thread where it stated that I oughta try to clean the partition which I did but I ended up cleaning my entire disk with all partitions gone.

I panicked and created a new partition. It is 931 gb big and covers the entire hard disk. I honestly don't know why I did that. Just realised I better stop and ask guidance before proceeding. I havent done anything after that.

It had some extremely important files (I'm an animator and it has about 85% of my demo reel). I was just beginning to back up the important data in my hard disks and this has happened. I followed the advice given on this thread,

diskpart/clean by accident....need to recover partitions,begging :'(

I have just downloaded the bootable version of Partition wizard (I don't have any other harddisks to boot from.) Just about to boot with USB and see what happens. But I would really appreciate help and guidance on what to do to proceed further. Any help would be deeply appreciated. Please.

A:Diskpart-Clean accidentally. How to recover partitions with data? Help

Currently running a quick scan using MiniTool Partition Wizard. Its running at a slow rate. 4% right now. It seems to have detected 3 lost/deleted partitions so far but the partitions sizes seem to be (2.45mb used / 3.01 mb). Guess I will have to wait for it to hit 100% before knowing anything more.I will update a picture of what I get once it completes. Meanwhile, any advice on any other alternatives / procedures I should do will be greatly appreciated.

In an attempt to create a windows 7 bootable USB I've deleted my HDD (it was late and in a hurry ).
I have 2 drives connected: 1'st is an SSD drive - for main windows, 2'nd is a 1TB HDD drive western digital splitted in two partitions.
The commands i've runned are: diskpart, list disk (to discover the usb device number), select disk 6, clean, create partition primary, select partition 1, active, format fs=fat32 quick. At the format command it gave me an error, something that it could not format the drive. I've clicked ok since i was in a hurry and did not read the entire error.
Today I've runned MiniTool Partition Wizard Free scanner both quick and full scan but it found only one partition.
Right now i'm running the testdisk utility analyse option but is taking a while and soon i will post a screenshot.
If anyone could help me I would appreciate the help.
PS english is not my native language, sorry for spelling mistakes.

A:Deleted HDD files using diskpart command

What exactly are you trying to do?
Are you trying to partition the HDD? You can easily do this from the Disk Management utility, no command prompt needed.

And, by the way, why are you formatting with FAT instead of NTFS?

Hi everyone,

First of all I apoligize if this the wrong section to post this and, im BEGGING you to please help me. As the title says, I lost my partition table.

I searched my issue on Google and it brought me here.

Here is my story:

1) I have a 1TB HDD with on partition.
2) I used the CLEAN command of DISKPART and accidentally deleted the partition.
3) After cleaning the disk I repartitioned it into two parts.
4) I formatted both parts using the quick format option.
5) I deleted the second partition created in step 4 and re partitioned it and formatted it using again the quick format option.
6) I realized about what I did and leave my disk to come here and look for some help before make a bigger mess, because I am afraid to execute any action without proper guidance.

But inbetween these steps I never wrote data into my disk.

I am really DESPERATE BECAUSE I have very valuable info. there.

If you can help me to recover my data I will be VERY VERY grateful to you.

Thanks for your time and answer guys.

Sincerely yours,


A:DISKPART, how do I recover a deleted partition?, PLEASE HELP!!!

Hello Sam, and welcome to Seven Forums.

I hope you have a backup of that deleted partition somewhere. Since you cleaned the disk, created new partitions, and formatted, the chances of recovering that deleted partition are very slim.

You might see if an option in the tutorial below may be able to recover it for you, but it doesn't sound promising.

After trying to use the diskpart to clean and then allocate a partition on my External HDD that ended up not working, now I can't get the drive to load any of the data I did store on it before. (Part of the 500 GB HDD is set for use with 360 but only 16GB). Now I can't get the drive to load other than when in the Computer Management>Disk Management and it shows up as Disk 1 but unallocated. I attached a screen shot of the Computer Manager.

I have a WD My Book Essential USB 3.0 3 TB external HDD that i bought just under 2 years ago (still under warranty for a few more months) and it doesnt work at all.

-doesnt show up in My Computer at all
-makes an unusual sound with varying beeps and clicks and definitely sounds like an "error sound"
-when i run MiniTool Partition Wizard, it doesnt even show up as a Disk
-when i run DiskPart on the cmd prompt, sometimes it shows up, but when it does, it shows as "0 GB", and when i "list partition", it says there are no partitions. so im assuming its just completely corrupted.
-when i try to update the WD firmware from the WD Support site, it doesnt even get past the beginning of the process. it says to make sure nothing is open on the desktop that is using files from the HDD, but nothing is open at all.

any ideas?

So while i was going through my Zune media player software, i was deleting music that i just dont listen to anymore.
i have an 80g zune, and i had to free up space to sync up my library. Quite a bit of music.
So in about the 3rd hour of deleting music...i get delirious, and just start clicking at things and deleting.

Somehow, I (while holding ctrl to select music) hit ctrl+A and hit delete. Yep I deleted my entire library. I'm awesome...
I deleted the music, not only from my library, but from the music folder on my computer.

The recycle bin only has room for so much and has only a fraction of the music I had originally.

Somehow my 2TB Seagate external drive got marked as Active and it causes my system to crash (system goes straight to BIOS). The drive contains many valuable photos and short videos; even though they are backed up, I really don't want to lose them off this drive.

So my question is.......if I use Diskpart to mark the drive inactive, will my data remain intact?

Thanks in advance.

A:Will My Data Be Safe If I Use Diskpart To Deactivate an External Drive

If done correctly you will not loose your data.

This tutorial by Brink will explain things.

Partition - Mark as Inactive

First we need to know something.
Does you system boot properly with the external drive unhook from your computer?

Now we need to see your Disk Management so we understand you setup better.

all my pictures are stored under my Kodak EasyShare account, and I don't have any back-ups! I accidentally selected them all and clicked "remove from my collection" and now i can't find them anywhere! does anyone know how to get them back? i've looked all over my computer for them but theyre nowhere to be found. please help!

A:accidentally deleted pics

If they are stored on the easyshares server, you better email kodak and ask them if they can recover them.

If you deleted the pics from your hard disk, install it as a slave on another pc, download getdataback (http://www.runtime.org/data-recovery-faq.htm) and install it on the new pc, and see if the files are on the drive, then you can retrieve them to your friends hard disk.

Good luck!

Hello everyone!

I had a dual boot on my laptop (running windows 7 and arch linux). I decided to get rid of the linux partitions and accidentally deleted the EFI partition. As a result, my laptop now doesn't recognize that there is any operating system on the computer.

What I have tried: I am currently using this: http://www.eightforums.com/general-support/52515-windows-8-cant-start-due-missing-efi-partition.html and the post by Genet with Option 3 since I allocated the space back to my disk C. I am running into an error part way thru the solution though where after I do "create partition efi size=260", it comes back with "MSR and EFI partitions are only supported on GPT disks. Convert the selected disk to GPT and try again". I don't know if I want to do that because its my local disk C...don't want to mess that up and change the format of that.

Any help will be greatly appreciated! Thank you!

I had to recently replace my power supply. When I restored my system everything that had been added since 2004 was either inop or gone. In the mean time my wife or son opened facebook or my space and hooked into a virus called "Protection Center" along with its buddy "Defense Center". I tried all sorts of ways to remove these tough viruses and finally wiped the hard drive of most things on it. Once I got control of my PC back I began reloading all that was lost including my security programs. I think I erased some important functions while I was trying to get rid of the virus. Is there a free program available from windows,HP or compaq or someone reputable that can show me what I am missing such as dll's or registries? Can they also show me how to repair these lost functions without having me download some program that is "free" and then wants 10-20-30 dollars or more to actually fix the problem?

So I have an ipod touch 4, and on my old computer the apps I downloaded were saved in one spot. Then, when I got my new computer, newer apps started saving in a new spot, and whenever an app was updated, it would be moved to the new folder.

I had assumed that all of my apps that I was still using had either been updated, or that just using them would lead to them being moved to the new folder, and so deleted the old folder, but I am now aware that that is not the case and some of my apps are no longer present on my computer.

Fortunately I have all of my apps backed up on my external hard drive, even those ones, though I'm worried that those ones may not be the most recent versions, and that in the case of some of my games the save files may be significantly far behind.

Oddly enough, the apps still appear in my itunes folder fine, other than that they have an exclamation point next to them and when I click "get info" they can't be found, but they still appear on my ipod and work fine and have the most recent saves, despite having synced my ipod to my computer multiple times since then.

Does anyone know what is going on and how I might fix this before I somehow end up losing the saves on these games?

hi guys,

i needed to access win so i decided ( i had still some start up floppy disk ) to install win xp sp1 on my d-drive in order to access dive c. it worked. before i tried to boot and install from the installation disk but this didn't work. after " windows is inspecting your hardware" the screen went black.
now what can i do? on my d-drive are still this two partion from suse 9.0. the computer tells me, it's free space but i have no access. how can i recover this space to drive d?
what will happen when i delete win xp sp1 again? can i still boot up?

thanks a lot for your help.

Not necessarily bad but by doing so, ComboFix related files and folders will remain on the system if you ran the tool before deleting it. The correct way to uninstall ComboFix can be found here. If you have not emptied the Recycle Bin you should be able to restore the file to your Desktop and follow those instructions. -- If you encounter any problems using the switch from the Run dialog box, just rename ComboFix.exe to Uninstall.exe, then double-click on it to remove.BTW, if you have not already done so, please read ComboFix usage, Questions, Help? - Look here.

Clearing the thumbnail cache will only empty the cache and not delete it. The cache will rebuild itself as Vista reloads the thumbnail images for the icons back into the cache as you navigate through Windows Explorer.

Its only 64GB so I set Windows up so that the Users folder was on my seconday (X drive instead of my SSD, and setup a Program Files and Program Files (x86) on my secondary drive. I used this. I deleted the account I made when installing windows and accidenally clicked delete files as well. This deleted all of the data I had in my Users folder and many in Program Files and other places. I used Recuva, but now all of the deleted files are in one folder instead of their respective locations. Is there anything I can do aside from reinstalling and salvaging what I can and reinstalling all of my programs?

That is why one has backups made BEFORE one does such things.

I hate to come here with tech related questions and/or problems, but I'm really stressed over something my dumb *** did tonight.

I have three hard drives - a 300GB PATA drive (D, a 300GB SATA (E drive that contains my Windows installation, and a 500GB PATA (G drive that contains a back up of the 300GB PATA drive (both of which contain all of my important files, such as music, games, ect.)

I've been having trouble with my Windows drive for a while now, as there is some sort of short that causes the SATA cable to not insert properly. I was having trouble getting Windows to even install tonight, so I did something monumentally stupid and installed my Windows disk into the DVD drive.

I went to Windows setup, figuring I could create a partition on the G drive and install Windows and thus throw out the failing E drive. I formatted a partition, which turned out to be on my D drive by mistake. After fumbling a bit, I finally have Windows up and running from the E drive (didn't complete the installation to G).

Problem is, now both of my G drive and D drive, which again contain all of my music, videos, ect. are gone! I tried Windows system restore and it did nothing. My D drive is showing up as empty with just the Windows directory, and the G drive is showing up as unformatted and unallocated.

So, is there anything I can do to recover my stuff? Or am I monumentally screwed?

A:Accidentally deleted files!

I think you're screwed. Ooopsie!

I accidentally (I don't even know how I did it) deleted my account with ALL MY FILES ON IT! But I know my files are still on the hard drive and in the computer. Problem is when I try to access ''Documents and Settings'' my old account's folder is still there but It is blocked. I remember blocking other users from my files awhile ago but I need to get all my files back!

It won't let me enter my files. All it says is ''C:\DocumentsandSettings/Owner is not accessible.

Access is denied''

Is there any ways I can get these files? I heard I can somehow connect to another computer and send them. I don't know. Any programs I can use? I'll even buy. Please help.

You need to take posssesion of it since it is not recognizing your current User Name as having authority to access it.

In XP Pro you only neeed to right click on the directory and select the Security tab where you will find the option to add your user name to the permissions list.

In XP Home you must boot up in Safe Mode and do this.

I have Windows 2000 Professional and while trying to delete the 'Brilliant Dig' spyware I also deleted HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Interface\. And now I cant open some web pages especially the javascript links. It says 'Error on page'

Also, I cant open Microsoft Word anymore. If i try to do so it says: "the windows installer service could not be accessed. contact your support personnel to verify that the Windows Installer service is properly registered."

When I try to open a word document saved on my C\drive it says: "The file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action. Create an association in the Folder Options Control Panel."

In addition to these, when I try to update my AVG Anti virus I receive a message like there is a problem with the interface and it fails to update.

And finally some options like start-search-all files and folders and edit-find (on this page) commands do not work.

Hope you can help me with this problem?
