Preferred Solution: SUPER URGENT! NTFS partition deleted, need to recover

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I deleted a partion using the windows 7 installer disk. Unfortunately I was a bit click happy and deleted my secondary drive (one partition if you call it that, as it took up the whole disk). This is my data drive. I keep everything there including a lot of very large, multimedia files that I cannot live without. After picking my heart back up out of my shoe I started asking for help and downloading as many free tools as I can. None of them have worked satisfactorily. Find and Mount looked extremely promising, saying it would find a mark on the HDD where a partition had been made previously and then allowing me to mount a read only version, then copying all the files as though the partition had never been damaged, if I wanted. Funnily enough not only did it fail to find a visable or lost partition on this drive, it even failed to find working partitions on any other drive. Pfft.I've tried Paragon Partition Manager. It told me my drive had errors and to run chkdsk. I did this but it didn't help. The programme had the same errors when I tested it on another drive. Another pfft.I tried EASEUS Partition Manager. It found the files... but it copied all 253 gb of them as 'raw' files or something like that. This means they were completely out of order, no folders and renamed 'file001.jpg' etc. This is useless for me as a lot of my files are .RARs that need to be in a sequence to option or similar issues and also with over 25000 files I cannot be arsed o...

Hi everyone,

I have an external drive, size 1TB with a ntfs partition on it. Some linux tools told me, that the size of the drive is 2TB. I used to GParted to resize it. Everything looked fine and the drive was still accessible. After writing something on the drive, the drive became inaccessible both under Ubuntu and Windows 7.

I tried to rewrite the MBR table with fdisk to have it set back to 1TB, but I dont really know, what sector size would be correct.

I wanted to use chkdsk to repair the drive, but unfortunately the drive is recognized as a RAW drive.

Can someone help me to rewrite the MBR table with fdisk or suggest a tool which can repair the MBR?

Hello!

I'm looking for a truly recovering deleted partitions and/or files program.
You can find by the net EASY RECOVER PRO, WINTERNALS DISK COMMANDER and other similar recovering programs. But I checked these programs cannot truly recover deleted partitions and files. They just appearance ($) recover programs. These weak programs cannot recover files/partition from a disk which were just the MBR sector erased!
Do u know a program really works on recovering?

thanks!
 

A:Programs 2 recover deleted partitions/files [NTFS/FATx]

I have a utility called Lost and found that is the best I have found. I don't even know if it is still available or not. I'm sure you could find a copy somewhere though. I don't even remember if or what it costs. To use it, you run it in DOS from its floppies and point it to the disk to recover then point it to a place to save the files. It is easy to use.

As with all recovery software, it isn't going to recover everything and will possibly recover nothing. I have used it to recover much of the data from disks which have been formatted and repartitioned though I have also not been able to do the same.

Hello all. I've learned a lot from this place over the years but never had a reason to register. Unfortunately, I've got a serious problem on my hands now so I had to now. ;)

My Windows XP system crashed on Monday with a BSOD while playing a DVD. My hard drive had been running at near full capacity for a few weeks (I'm working on a new build) and I think that had something to do with it.

When I restarted the PC after the BSOD, I got an error "A Disk Read Error Occurred." So, I pulled the CMOS battery out, because this isn't the first time I've had start-up issues and that normally takes care of it. It did not. So I ran Windows repair console and did a chkdsk /r /p. That returned "The Volume Appears to Contain One Or More Unrecoverable problems." So, I ran Fixboot and then fixMBR. Both said they completed successfully, but neither worked. I still get the "disk read error" message.

I checked the hard drive using Hitachi's Drive Fitness Test (it is a Hitachi 160GB drive). That passed A-ok, no errors, no problems...the drive is not phsyically damaged or anything.

I've since made Ubuntu and Fedora Live CD's to try and access the drive to get the data from. Neither "sees" or mounts the drive (NOTE:I am NOT a Linux guy, I've had to read a lot of forums for help on how to do this).

Last night I booted with UBCD (Ultimate Boot CD - Overview) and started up Parted Magic. Parted Magic sees the drive as a NTFS drive, but sho... Read more

A:URGENT HELP - Need to recover a file deleted from the recycle bin!!!

Hi Luke!

There are tools you can use to restore deleted files, but there's no guaranty that you'll be successful. To maximize your chances, stop using the computer. While you're using it, things are being written to the disk all the time and so a deleted piece of data can be overwritten.

Your best bet is to go to another computer, download one of the "recovery" tools and put it on a memory stick or a cd. Then run it on the PC with the deleted file from the cd.

An example of a freeware recovery program is "restoration".

if so could somebody recommend a good data-recovery-software for this particular convert problem or recovery method like do i use easy data recovery methods or RAW data recovery methods in the software.

Any help would be appreciated..

Welcome to TSF....

You can convert from Fat32 to NTFS but not the other way around from NTFS back to Fat32. The only way to go back is to have a backup of the data preferably an image and then use that to reformat the drive Fat32 and then restore the image.

A:Accidentally deleted NTFS Partition

Never use drive letters to identify drives. They change all the time.

The drive will not show up in explorer in Windows if it has nothing to display. If it has no file system, there is nothing that Windows could show you, so it does not appear.

You may be able to recover the partition. Try recovering either the partition or your files. Move them all somewhere else if you get access to them and then repartition and reformat the drive.

I chose the partitioned 120 gig drive not realizing what I had done. I confirmed the partition removal and then realized what I did. So I start flipping out and I restart my comp

I don't know what to do and I really need the files on the 120 gig HD. I didn't install windows and I haven't done anything other than run the utility. Can someone please help me. I don't know what I'll do if I can't get my files back.

A:recover deleted partition please HELP!

Rob, There are utilities that can rebuild a File Allocation Table. I have never used one but I understand that they work by installing the hosed drive as a slave to another bootable drive and running the software from the boot drive to fix the slave.

I can't tell you any names but a Google search should get you plenty of hits.

Good luck. There is hope.

Hi-

I got to the point on the install where it highlighted the good partition and I hit "L" to erase it. At that point I stopped and tried a repair from the XP Home disk but no luck. Since it didn't overwrite it (probably just erased some pointers) is there any way to get back the good partition/OS that was on this disk?

Did something really stupid the other day. Was doing a Windows install and I mistook a drive for a different drive.

In short, I deleted the partition, recreated the partition, but I haven't reformatted yet. The partition was the same size before and after so that shouldn't be a problem.

The files should still be there but I don't know how to get at them. I've already tried Recuva, UndeletePlus, Restoration, and a Knoppix boot disk but none of these were able to do anything because of the lack of a file system/boot sector.

Anybody know of a quick and dirty, preferable free software tool that I can use to recover these?

Boot from the Windows installation media in UEFI Boot Mode, so you can use GPT (GUID Partition Table).

Quote from this post: UEFI Boot Mode (installing using the GPT partition style) and Legacy BIOS Boot Mode (installing using the MBR partition style). -> link







   Tip
Error message when you boot from the Windows installation media in Legacy BIOS Boot Mode:

Windows cannot be installed to this disk. The selected disk is of the GPT partition style. (see screenshot below)

That is because Windows can only be installed to MBR disk in Legacy BIOS Boot Mode, but you plan to install Windows on a GPT disk.

- Boot from the Windows installation media in UEFI Boot Mode, so you can use GPT (GUID Partition Table).
- But if you want to use MBR (Master Boot Record) partition table, then delete all partitions on the disk.

Ok so I apologize in advance if this story is a bit long, and horrifying (actually it's probably entertaining xD). I purchased the Lenovo y510p gaming laptop on back on July 14th 2014. I got the laptop, and it just didn't work for me. It didn't play the games I wanted it to, it had overheating issues, the keyboard had a really sharp edge making typing uncomfortable as well. After installing Sony Vegas and Avast, and just shifting some of my personal photos/music over, I made a backup of the laptop using the OneKey Recovery software. This backup was made to one of my 500GB external hard drives. So I then decided that I just didn't like the laptop, and it was time to return it. I called Newegg, and got my RMA all ready to go. Because I had lot of my personal files and programs, I decided the fastest way to delete everything would be to use the OneKey Recovery by Lenovo, and do a factory reset. At the time, I didn't think anything of this then simply putting the laptop back to exactly how I got it. I even booted it up after the factory reset, and it looked just like the first day I got it.

A:How to recover deleted "Recovery Partition"

If you only used One Key Recovery by Lenovo, it should not delete the partition. (I hope you did not format the whole system) Once you receive the laptop, you can check if this partition still exists in Control Panel >> Administrative Tools >> Disk Management.It should show some drives, other than the C: , D: and the SSD (if you have). Those drives are the recovery partitions. I can post a sample screenshot in the evening. Sadly, I do not know any way to recover that partition. As I have seen on this forum several people who lost that partition could not roll back their laptop to original settings without a recovery drive (which is different from a recovery backup).

I have two hard disk in my computer, Disk0 (500gb) and Disk1 (150gb). Problem is with disk1. 1st it was being used for Windows 7 (EFI, one main primary partition and Windows hidden system partitions) then I formatted it as FAT32 and used for backup and data.

During Windows 8.1 installation, when I was erasing partition on Disk0, accidentally / mistakenly deleted all small partitions on Disk1, didn't touch the bigger main partition of 149gb where the data is stored, now the situation is that in Windows Storage Management it's showing that partition as healthy partition but not as FAT32 but as 'Other' and I can not assign drive latter to it as all options are grayed out.

Tried some data recovery tools, can recover data using some of them but it's messed up, no folder hierarchy, no proper file names, very difficult to sort out, would you please suggest any better option, any way to recover partition to working state, or any data recovery with proper folders hierarchy?

If a partition is deleted but not formatted then it can be recovered using Partition Wizard Partition Recovery Wizard - Video Help.

Try also using PW to assign a drive letter to the data partition. How to Change Letter with partition manager - Partition Wizard Video Help.

If that fails try using Diskpart to assign a drive letter from booted Win7 installer System Recovery Options Command Line: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/l...=ws.10%29.aspx

A failed partition which cannot be assigned a letter using steps above can sometimes have its table restored using DiskGenius trial.

Once you can assign a letter I'd back up your data which should have already been backed up if it has any value to it, then run Disk Check or Partition Wizard Check File System

While trying to reinstall Windows 8 on a home PC we pulled the wrong hard drive and did a clean install on a drive that was being used to store a ton of files (videos, images, documents, etc) rather then a smaller drive that should have had the OS installed on it.

The original partition (on the storage drive) was deleted and then had 8 clean installed on it.

Is there any way to recover that deleted partition to get the files back?

Right now we're running a SuperScan with [email protected] Partition Recovery on the drive in question and it looks like it's going to take about 5 hours to complete. What's worrying us at the moment is the software is showing the deleted partition, and has folders from it in it, but there are no files. For example no videos or images yet.

I'm wondering if that just means the scan needs to complete or what. I don't know if anyone here has used [email protected] or has a better recommendation for partition recovery (if it's possible at this point) but the partition we're hoping to recover is listed as "Good".

Thanks in advance for any and all advice, if you need any more information, just let me know.

I accidentally deleted a partition during a re-install and now I need to see if I can get it back. What isthe best way to go about this? It is a SATA III drive, 1TB Seagate if that matters.

A:Deleted partition on re-install - need to recover it!

If you didn't create a new partition and installed files or a new OS over the space that was once the old partition, then there is a good chance you can recover.
Use the Free TestDisk program. I have had the best luck with GetDataBack. You will need another partition or drive of the same size or larger to restore your files to.

Tonight, my WinXPro system was spied by some malicious software which Symentec Antivirus wasn't able to clean up. Finally I decided to use Norton Ghost to recover from an old backup file. It is an image file of my C partition. On the same disk, there is another physical partition "D". By accident, I installed the ghost image to 'Disk 1', forgetting to select Partition 1, and so wiped out completely the second partition on this drive. Now I cannot see drive D at all from file explore. Is there any way I can get those files back which was in my D drive? There is no backup for them which I work on everyday. Without recoverying all of them will japerdize my job seriously. Any ideas welcome, please help. THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

Hi Guys

I'm running XP and Lubuntu on an old pc. I recently erased my Local Disk D, which had most of my personal data on it. Local Disk C is still there and contains the XP OS.

I'm not so bothered about losing the data that was in D (the really important stuff was backed up) but Disk D took up nearly 40GB of space which I am now unable to access or utilise.

The full story is long so rather than recite it here if anyone is able to try to help it would be better if I just supply information as and when you require it.

I should say that I'm very much an IT beginner; until this all started I hadn't even heard of partitions, and sadly I'm still struggling with them.

Needless to say, very grateful for any help.

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.

Hello,
Could you please help me to solve the problem i faced recently. Let me explain you what happened in detail.
Initially I had 2TB Seagate Expansion Desk HDD, partitioned into 500GB, 13GB, 293GB, all three Bitlocker encrypted and 1 more 500GB unencrypted partition, the rest of the space was unallocated. Few days ago, by mistake, while I was creating Windows Recovery
Disk chose the wrong drive letter and ended up whole partitions above deleted. Here?s what I have in HDD now: 32GB Windows 8 Recovery partition and 1831GB unallocated space. After that I haven?t made any changes to the drive. I was able to restore the data
from the last unencrypted part by using Getdataback SW but with no luck in my Bitlocker encrypted partitions. I would appreciate any advice to restore the bitlockerencrypted partitions as I have the password and recovery keys to decrypt and retrieve my data
back.

Softwares I have: Recuva. Handy Recovery. R-Studio. Getdataback. M3 Bitlocker Recovery. Starus Partition Recovery. TestDisk

I can provide the snapshots of the results from recovery softwares should you need them. Thank you very much!

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/
Now the problem was on the step to create recover.img :
when i type "repair-bde F: E:\recover.img -rp 517253-653510-042988-665027-063393-559515-700700-268211"
I get ERROR: cannot use 517253-653510-042988-665027-063393-559515-700700-268211 (the recovery key) to unlock the input volume, please try different recovery password or recovery key


I am sure that it is the right recovery key.

HELP! SOS! MAYDAY!

I messeded up big time

"I'm going to drawn myself, you can be just like me" (M'n'M) puke:

Allright what happened:

Reading around the board, this section particularly, and having recently converted gear and OS, I thought it was time to clean up my HDD's, and reschedule partitions.
I've got 2 HDD's 1 Maxtor 40Gb IDE & 1 Maxtor 80Gb IDE
In my former system I had only the 80Gb and there partitioning was as followed:
- 5Gb for OS (2.1), also being the active (former system) partition of this HDD
- 15Gb for program files & program files data (2.2)
- 20Gb for Miscellaneous Data (2.3)
- 40Gb for Media files (2.4)

After convertion:
the 40 Gb HDD went into 2x 20Gb, 1 for OS (1.1) & 1 for program files and program files data (1.2).
After cleaning I had managed to get the 5Gig partition (2.1) empty which I wanted to join with the 15Gig (2.2).
Leaving me with a simple, well looking, structure.

I was so damn stupid to, after formatting this partition, DELETE it.
Yes, I know, you get a warning message, and it was the moment I confirmed I felled the itch something was going to be wrong.
A split second later I saw 2.3 & 2.4 coming free as "available space".
These disks where practically 70% occupied and contain all my work and info of the last years.

A:Accidently deleted 1 partition, lost 3! Urgent help wanted!

Sounds to me like you deleted the extended partition instead of one logical partition inside it. Yes, I have used testdisk successfully, but if you feel uncomfortable with it, feel free to try Active Partition Recovery or whatever. However, APR's demo won't fix anything as it won't write to disk.

Hi,
It has happened to me twice...I accidentally deleted a partition and later found out that my system is dead....The only way I recover out of that is I reinstall Windows and then install grub again to recover the Linux partition. But I feel the delete partition is a very rapid process just taking seconds and in that I don't think files would be deleted, so I feel potentially I can recover the deleted partitions including the boot partition. But I don't know how to do it. Also now when the boot partition is deleted and the system is not booting up what should be done to recover the system and data?
Thanks in advance,

One of the registrys I most assume userinit.exe got deleted and now when i start my system it automatically logs me off when I log on. I have tryed everything I can think of, booting from CD windows xp installed, booting from USB a bootable registry editor so I can make userinit.exe run again. When I boot from either CD or USB I have no option to press any key to load the application. I have tryed reordering boot prioreties and using F12 for advanced boot and non of that works.
