Recover Data in Unallocated Partition

Q: Recover Data in Unallocated Partition

Have a good day,
I have 1 physical drive 80Gb, divided into 2 partitions: C and D
C is System (WinXP)
D is Data
Yesterday, i got a virus. I rebooted, and used Acronis True Image to restore backup from Secure Zone (this backup was for Partition C). Secure Zone was ok, but Partition C and D were unallocated. I recovered partition C by using a backup in Secure Zone. After recovering, partition D was still unallocated.
I didn't do anything since then.
When i run Partition Magic 8, i saw this unallocated partition
Will my data in partition D be lost when i resize Partition C to 80Gb
Please help me to recover my data in partition D,
it was very important to me !!!

I'm wating for your advices

Thanks and Best Regards

Preferred Solution: Recover Data in Unallocated Partition

I recommend downloading and running DRP. It's a recovery tool that has been proven to recover files that most other programs have no luck with. I've even recovered files from freshly formatted or partitioned drives.

You can download it direct from this link http://goo.gl/v51TwD. (This link will automatically start a download of DRP that you can save to your computer.)

Hello,

when i used my win 10 my (media) Hard disk suddenly unallocated with 2 partition one it. one of the partition was encrypted with bitlocker

Now I used window 7 ultimate and to try to recover my data I follow steps according to the great guide :
http://www.normanbauer.com/2013/07/25/how-to-recover-data-from-a-deleted-bitlocker-enabled-partition/

Hi guys
I've spent nearly all day on this problem.
I recently upgraded to a larger SSD, ran a fresh install of Window7 Prof. I noticed that the Terra-byte drive now has half of its size partitioned. I do not remember doing this and have been unsuccessful in trying to get it undone. I have browsed this forum and read all that I could find relevant. I am unable to get any response from the unallocated partition of D drive. Any right click command is greyed out. All the advice I have tried has had no remedy... please help!!!!!!!
Hope the image below works and helps.

A:How do I recover unallocated hd partition?

I hate to tell you this but your install is IMHO all screwed up.
You say you did a fresh/new install of Win 7 Pro.
Well it seems you left the other hard drives in the system when doing this and you did not move the new SSD to the top of the drive list in the bios before you started the install.
Which made the install routine see the TB drive as the first drive in the system. Windows ALWAYS copies files to the FIRST drive in the system when installing. In this case it created the 100MB system reserve partition on the TB drive where it should of been placed on the new SSD drive.
What all this means is if you remove the TB drive the system will not boot.
I would suggest you start over making sure either the new SSD drive is the only drive in the system when doing the OS install or that it is listed in the BIOS as the first drive in the system and connected to SATA port 1 with the other drives also connected.

I personally would do a new fresh install with only the SSD in the system connected to SATA port 1.

This is really easy if you use a 3rd party app like Paragon disk suite. Free to try

1-delete partition with no drive letter
2-expand the HP partition

Thats it

Hello. I was recovering my OS (win 8) when a disk error occurred which did not allow me to access the partition which has the recovery files. Eventually I installed an OS but found a partition with needed files has become unallocated space. I would like to allocate the 300 gig partition and also recover the files if they are there. I do not want to merge it with the C: drive. I thought I was protecting my files by saving to a separate partition in the event the OS need be re installed. 
 
Any Suggestions?
 
Thanks in advance.

A:Recover files from a unallocated partition 8.1

It's possible the original partition table was wiped when you reinstalled. The best way to approach it is to recover the files first but you will need a recovery drive with at least the same amount of space as the data you plan to recover.
 
Download Testdisk for Windows. Unzip to a folder on the desktop and run it. Do a Quick Search. Is should pick up a number of partitions on the drive. Highlight each and press the "P" key until you find the files you are looking for. If not then do a Deeper Search. If you do find your files,  you can recover all of them by pressing "a" and then upper case "C" or highlight individual files/directories by pressing the ":" key and then upper case "C" to copy. 
 
Because the default location of recovery is the folder you started Testdisk from, it would be best to unzip the testdisk folder to a external drive with enough capacity to recover all  your data and start the program from that folder.
 
Here is a step by step guide using Testdisk.

Hi,

I'm trying to recover the data (including some treasured family photos) from a Western Digital 320GB HDD that died in my sister's desktop HP PC using my Windows 7 work Dell laptop. I can only see the disk using Disk Management, where it shows as unallocated.



The drive itself failed (was making horrible clicking noises) and I have since replaced the board using a duplicate drive bought from eBay. I have been following advice from this thread, and have been running a so-called 'quick scan' using the free version of Mini Tool Partition Wizard Home Edition's Partition Recovery Wizard. It's been running for over 5 days now on a 320GB drive, and is only a fraction of the way through.



So my question is this, am I wasting my time doing the 'quick scan'? At this rate I will be lucky if it finishes before Christmas. Please someone tell me there's a faster way?

A:How can I recover data from HDD now showing as Unallocated?

The number of sectors shown on the PRW image seems way too large for a 320GB HDD. Usually when a partition is lost the HDD has died or is dying. The clicking noise you heard is evidence the drive is gone. There's only two moving parts in an HDD, the spinning disks/platters and the Voice Coil Relay that moves the arms that hold read/write heads across the disk/s, the clicking is from the VCR 'snapping' the arms back against the stop/rest.

I was trying to create recovery media on a USB stick for my new laptop but for some reason it wasn't working. I kept trying it and eventually it worked. A while later I came to access my USB hard drive but it wasnt showing up in My Computer. I checked Disk Management and found my USB HDD had a 32gb RAW partition and a 2.7TB Unallocated Space partition.

So it looks like the recovery media application was trying to write to my USB HDD instead of my USB stick. It obviously didn't write anything to the HDD as the 32gb partition is a RAW format.

I have tried two pieces of partition recovery software but they only find loads of little partitions.

I haven't tried any file recovery software yet. I was hoping I could use partition recovery software.

Could anyone help me out?

Evening

Well... I tried to merge a partition with Partition Magic and half way through it give me an error "1523: cluster beyond end" and now the part i tried to merge has become unallocated.

I've looked around on the internet (and here) but not found much info on how to recover the data left in the unallocated part, the stuff on the drive is not all that important but I'd much prefer to have it than not have it!

Some of the things i tried...
Ran check disk with both options ticked - fixed something (or so it said!) but still unallocated
Tried to run the Partition Magic undelete option - "Access violation at address 004b8016 in module 'PMagicnt.exe'. Read of address 0000004C" after about 40sec's

Read something on the web that increasing the partition size will allow access to the data after the process is finished, but was a little bit skeptical about it.

Any help would be awesome!

Cheers

I purchased a new Motherboard to upgrade my computer and new SSD drive. I installed Windows 7 again on my new SSD. I had a 3TB Seagate Drive that had 3 partitions. One partition had Windows 7 and system files. The other two had data. Now, one of my data partitions shows as Unallocated. The old Windows 7 partition is totally accessible as well as one data partition. I need to recover the data on the drive from the unallocated partition. I've tried Seatools and EaseUs partition tool. I'm going to try DiscInternals next.

Does anyone have suggestions on recovering a partition that is now unallocated? I imagine the data is still there but the partition isn't being recognized by Windows 7.

Thanks

It is also saying it is a LOGICAL partition now and it's all greyed out. Can anybody help me?

That brought me to here, where I found what I was looking for, so that the FREE partition restoration software would not leave me hanging with only helping me restore a portion of the data I want to retrieve off my HD when I want to retrieve it all! Still don't know how to go about it, but at least I now have an expired pro version of partition retrieval software I'm confident and hopeful will aid me! I have confidence and faith I will retrieve the identical partition tree structure with folders and files plus all data intact... even though others have told me my HD is toast!

I was running win 7 with 4 partitions , thought to upgrade to win 10. While installing it didn't allowed me to install. I thought i can run diskpart clean on one partition, selected one volume and ran clean command, but it still cleaned all the partitions. Long story short, I cannot boot my OS until I install OS on freshly created single partition. I was told to use partition recovery apps like partition and mount software, Do I have to install OS on it anyways and once OS is installed, instal the partition and mount software for the recovery?

Do not install any OS now.Do not install any OS now. Do not install any OS now.

(Diskpart clean only erases the first 2048 sectors of the drive. The most important one is sector 0 which holds the MBR and the partition table.

If the MBR and partition table are restored you should be able to get back the drive.

I hurry up to post this so that you don't do any such "mischief" like installing the OS)

At a certain point it started loading something and kept the reading/writing of the harddisk so much that the system went really slow and I couldn't do anything. After a while I shutted the laptop abnormally (by pressing the power buttton and holding it till it's off) and started it again. When the system booted the first time it just stuck. I restarted again and it booted but as soon as windows began the loading started again and it went for 5-6 hours. Then I hibernated the laptop and the next day when i started my laptop the message appears that the C Drive is not formatted. Do u want to format it????. Windows shows it as an unformatted partition. There is a lot of data there in C Drive. I really don't want to lose it. What do I do to recover it?

Ok so I had some files on this hard drive now which didnt have an os and was part of another os until that crashed. So I booted to linux live and it showed the files i had on here so I installed linux thinking I could still be able to access them. When it said there was data and asked if i wanted to mount it i said no because i still needed those files so it created another primary partition with no filesystem so i uninstalled linux and installed windows 7 and in the disk management it shows up as a basic primary partition for 4.96 gb which is about how much data is on there but there is no filesystem and the only thing i can do with it is delete it. I have tried testdisk and i cannot seem to access the partition. i tried using linux live cd to recover them and it dosnt work on that either. someone please help me recover these. i have a paper i need for school to graduate on there.

A:recover partition with data on it

You installed Linux to a disk that had data that you wanted to recover ? What OS was on the disk that was part of the other OS ? maybe you could break down the steps a little more and add missing info like the OS versions partitions etc. You can also try r-studio and "get back data" to scan the drive for the missing data however I fear you overwrote the space when you installed Linux on the drive if I have followed your information correctly.

You could try chkdsk - it may or may not repair the MFT.

Greetings everyone,

I'm having quite a bit of bad luck at backing up data from a WD My Book Essential. I had a feeling something was faulty, so I started backing up my data. The hard disk in it was 1TB, and lets say about 450 GB of it was used.

I started copying everything, and about 50% went smoothly. Normal speed, no hickups. Then the drive started randomly dying and rebooting. It would copy for a number of minutes, then stopped as if the drive had been unplugged, and then poped up again after a few seconds. After a while, I just couldn't access it anymore. I had a feeling something might be wrong with the case.

So I disassembled it, and took the hard drive out. I plugged it into my computer, and it's recognized, but the capacity of it is showing up as unallocated in Computer Management.



Disk 0 is my main hard disk, split into two partitions, and Disk 1 is the drive in questions.

Right now I'm running TestDisk and it will take till morning to analyse all 121600 cylinders. I'm wondering what my next step(s) should be if the scan comes up empty? Should I try to use any other software to recover the partition, or should I use something to try to recover the files?

Thank you in advance for any tips and ideas.

A:Backing up data, need to recover partition

The typical advice is to first try to recover the partition and if that fails to then try to recover individual files.

You may as well download Western Digital utilities to see if it fails. Maybe you have a warranty claim? I think there is a short test and a longer one.

I'm no expert on recovery and can't give you specific advice.

I installed a new HDD today and when I went into the Windows setup to partition it, I accidentally deleted a partition on one of my other drives. This drive had ALL my pictures, music, movies and videos. EVERYTHING I had was on that disk.

Since I only deleted the partition, I would assume the information is still there. Is there anyway to recover this, or am I screwed?

TIA,
 

A:Is there anyway to recover data after deleting a partition?

You're in luck. As long as you haven't done anything else to the disk, you should be able to recover everything. Deleting the partition just deletes the partition table info, the original data is still there. Google some hard disk recovery tools. I used this once to recover from a similar problem.

Hi everyone,

A friend of mine has a 2TB Western Digital Elements hard drive with 100GB free on it. He purchased a Mac so cannot write to the NTFS formatted 2TB Elements. I offered to copy his data out, repartitioned it as exFat so that both Mac and Windows can read and write to it.

Windows report that the drive has 100GB left but when I copied the files, it copied only 812GB. I made the bad assumption that the Windows backup took up the rest of the space and since my friend did not need it, I will just not worry about it.

After repartitioning the drive and formatting it as exFat, I copied the important directories back. I noticed that many of the directories that I copied have very little or no data in them. A file which I googled to be Windows backup binary file, which I did not copy back to the 2TB is itself 760GB. This means I copied only 50GB of data. Yikes!

I unplugged the drive so that no more data will be written to it in hope that I can recover at least some of the data. My friend is having an anxiety attack at the moment... because he does a lot of music writings; his scores and voices are what he wanted back.

Is there a way to recover files from a repartitioned drive that has been repartitioned and formatted twice?

* Original is NTFS with 1.8TB of data

A:Recover data from multiple re-partition?

You could try using Recuva -- as far as I know, it's still free.

The best data recovery apps I've used come from Runtime Software. You can download, install them and run them for free to do a search of the drive. You can then look at the results to see what they found. But to actually save the files, you have to purchase them -- and last time I checked, it was around $70 for RecoverMyFiles.

Oh, and you would have to connect the drive you want to recover to a working PC -- as you obviously can't install apps on the drive itself.

NO! Don't do anything that involves the hard drive at this point. You will need to use another computer to create a disk recovery boot disk from a recovery program and use that to boot the computer with the affected hard drive and then let the program do its thing.

This is the program I have used in the past, and I think Brink recommends it too:
[email protected] Partition Recovery restores deleted damaged volumes &amp disks. Freeware Data Recovery Software Toolkit

You can try this one for free, the company is a pretty good company, but I haven't used this software:

I was installing Fedora 18 and Windows XP was already installed on my primary C drive. one of my partitions deleted accidentally during installation which contained backup data. The file system was NFTS. I used EASEUS data recovery. It took too much of time and all of the files were not recovered ( or I was unable to recognize them.) I had some important flv files but they didn't recover. Please tell me some free software you may have used which may efficiently recovered the data.

Hi everyone,

I have a 2 GB USB flash drive. I recently plugged this flash drive into my Ubuntu Linux-based computer while VMware was running because I needed to get a file out of the virtual machine and I thought that would be the easiest way. VMware took control of the device and mounted it in the Windows XP environment it was running. I copied a file I needed to get out of the virtual machine onto the flash drive, then shut down the virtual machine.

Now I am having a desperate problem -- the flash drive is no longer readable or mountable in any computer. Linux tells me that the device has an "invalid partition table," Mac OS X tells me that the device is unreadable or not initialized, and another Windows XP computer tells me that the disk in the drive is not formatted. The Linux error message gives me the most hope -- I have data that I cannot stress how valuable it is to me on that flash drive and I desperately need to be able to recover it. Is there any way of bypassing the partition table and getting at the data?

I hope someone is able to help me! Thank you!

After done resizing and restart i can't see any D partition. so i was worried that my data will disappeared. i try to look for it but there is no Drive D even on the easeus or diskpart. the only drive appears was C Drive.

Hello everyone,
My sister recently bought a HP Laptop.I am just an average user.So without much knowledge I messed up the partitions.I'm attaching a screenshot to show the condition.Now I want to recover the unallocated space either by combining it to C drive or by making it a separate drive (I prefer combing to C).

Now I've searched every forum and gone through every video on youtube but haven't found a solution.Everyone is suggesting that I should delete recovery drive in order to utilize the unallocated space.The thing is I cannot delete it because my sister is already pissed and then things will get worse.

For those who say not possible, I personally believe that in this era where there are so many computer experts out there, someone might have the solution that I'm looking for.

I just want to utilize the unallocated space(preferably combine with C), without deleting anything or any drives... PLEASEEEEEEEEEEEE HELP ME

A:[Help] Recover Unallocated Space

Hi

I will start by explaining why you can't create a new partition using the free space. By default an MBR based partition table will have only four slots available. In your case, all four slots are filled so there is no more room for another new partition is available. If you just delete the "HP Tools" partition, you will be able to create a 375 GB sized primary partition for data storage. It is also possible to convert the "HP Tools" partition to "Logical" and then you will be able to create a new 'Logical" volume using the 373 GB free space. However i am not going in to the details as your goal is to add the free space to "C".

I would suggest the below steps.

1. Download and install "Partition Wizard" from the below link.

Best Free Partition Manager Freeware and free partition magic for Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows Vista and Windows XP 32 bit & 64 bit. MiniTool Free Partition Manager Software Home Edition.
2. Run the tool and move the "HP Tools" partition to the end of unallocated space. The tools partition will be moved near to the recovery partition and the fee space will be moved next to the "C" drive.

3. Expand the "C" drive to cover the entire free space.
The whole process is nicely described on the official tutorial : Do you want to get extended partitions when partition space shortage happens?.

As someone pointed out, it doesn't make much sense to backup a HD on itself. So now I want to recover the 10 gigs to try out the Windows 7 RC. How can I do this?

I hate to say this, but it looks like your only option is trying data recovery software.

Here are some free programs you can try:

Recuva - Undelete, Unerase, File and Disk Recovery - Free Download

I have had good luck with Kernel Data Recovery, but alas, it costs $40. You can download the trial version and see what is recoverable, but you will have to pay to actually do it.

Hi guys i couldnt shrink my C drive less than 456GB so i usesd EASEUS Partition Master to shrink C drive to 150GB but now i cannot make a new partition of the unallocated drive, i get the error "You cannot create a new volume in this unallocated space because the disk already contains the maximum number of partitions".
i have attached the screenshot for a better understanding for you guys.
Can i increase the size of E drive and merge this unallocated drive with it or make a new drive of it?
Thanks!

A:Error while creating partition to unallocated partition

I looks like your hard drive is a MBR format (legacy) drive. On a MBR drive you can have a maximum of 4 Primary partitions. To add more partitions you must create one Extended partition and then use Logical drives within that partition.
Local Disk E: is already set up as the Extended partition (the green box around it indicates this). So you will have the option to create Logical drives in or after E:.

The problem is that Windows Disk Management tool is quite limited in what it can do. Disk Management can't even extend partitions to the left.

You need to shift that unallocated space down towards E:. You would also probably want that Extended partition at the end of the drive (although that is not absolutely necessary).

Minitool Partition Wizard, from the bootable CD, can do the job for you. Please remember that it is always a good idea to backup your data before playing with partition shifting. While PW is quite good, thing do go wrong from time to time.

Free download Magic Partition Manager Software, partition magic alternative, free partition magic, partition magic Windows 7 and server partition software - Partition Wizard Online

Also note: if you do add a fifth Primary partition on a MBR disk the entire disk will be converted to a Dynamic Disk. And you do not want to do that.

So my external hdd has of 500gb from iomega has served me for quite some years but today my laptop (main pc) just does not show it anymore and I cannot for the life of me get access to the files which were on there.
here is what i know so far.

- Drive shows up in devicemanager as Mass storage
- drive shows up in the screen to eject mass storage devices
- disk management shows that the entire 465gb worth of storage has been unallocated with a black bar above it

So after searching for a bit I found a program called EASEUS data recovery wizard. it started scanning the drive and showed all the folders and files that were on the disk, ALL OF THEM and that made me really happy. However when it was completely done scanning it created a special kind of file to just organize every single file in the document based on type rather then the order and state they were in previously and besides that, the full program would cost me 50$

I looked for more programs and then found Partition recovery Wizard Minitools, it started scanning but instead of one partition it showed a bunch of partitions of about 600 mb's each. I really have clue what it means and i do not know if it is a good thing or a bad thing

in case it turns out to be a bad thing, what do i do next?

A:help recover external hdd with unallocated space.

Well it appears your external hard drive has failed, Data recovery can be expensive $50 is cheap IF it can work????? That's a big IF. Minitool will work with you with there paid version. Again IF it will work. These are consumer tool not professional tools. So how important is your data. Sorry I can't be helpful here at all.

One think you might try is to get the External drive out of its enclosure and hook it up directly to SATA connection in your computer and hope that it only the Connection or the actual enclosure chipset that is failing?

I then did a recovery copy of the drivers and applications to Recovery Drive and suddenly the two other partitions disappeared. I can only see the Recovery Drive and unallocated volume on the USB HD.

Hey guys, it was just that the blue screen came up while I was on Windows 7, and afterwards, the computer would not boot Windows, gives a blue screen.
But my Ubuntu as a 2nd operating system installed on the same drive works fine. I opened GParted Partition Editor and I have a 596 GB single "unallocated" partition.

I'm pretty sure the files are still in there because it successfully reads and loads Windows system files in Safe Mode, but does not boot them, blue screen again. And my personal files in Ubuntu are still there.

The Win 7 installation USB doesn't install because the hard drive does not appear. So how do I recover my hard drive into its drive C and drive D partitions? I can risk formatting drive C where Windows 7 is in. But I want to recover drive D at all costs.

The System Recovery Options are accessible (ie windows command prompt), but I do not have a restore point.

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

A:Recover unallocated win7 hard drive from Ubuntu

Okay got it solved after 4 hours of work. I used GParted Live, as a bootable USB.
In its terminal window, ran the following:

sudo -s
fdisk -l

to monitor hard drive status. After that I ran:

testdisk

which has its own UI you can move around with up down arrows and Enter button to play around your HDD. After that I ran:

fdisk -l

to monitor hard drive status once again to see if it worked. I recommend GParted bootable version rather than the desktop version when a virus screws up your HDD to its entirety.

Hi all,

I am not sure what those 19 gb are.. and is there a way to get them back ? If I right click on it only gives me an option to delete..

A:19 GB unallocated partition

I's not unallocated, It's just hidden. You can assign a Drive letter to it and you can use it. As you said it's only give you the option to delete then you might have to use diskpart from elevated command to assign a drive letter for it. However, I also notice that you installed Windows without the 350MB reserved partition and it's OK, some people like it that way & as long as you don't use Bitlocker.
