Preferred Solution: How to recover deleted or lost partition on flash drive?

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.)

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 don't know if this is the right section, but here goes:
1) plug your flash drive into your computer
2) 'Open' your Recycle bin by right-clicking on it, and selecting 'Open'
3) click on the file you want to recover (to select it), then right-click on the file, and select 'Restore'

This should restore the file that you want.

I seem to have lost an entire folder from my personal flash drive containing all of my household budget/income/finances information!

I plug this USB drive mostly into my computer at work, which is on a huge network and very protected by our IT department, meaning I don't have administrator priveleges on the machine/can't install anything and probably can't recover anything.

I hesitate to ask for our IT department's help becuase they are... uh... not very helpful even when it's work-related. :-(

Where could my files have gone??!! They are not in my deleted folder. Can I get them back??

Help!!!
 

A:Solved: How do you recover files deleted from a flash drive?

You'll probably need to install some data recovery software. If this is your personal drive then you can do the recovery at home where you should be able to install software to run a recovery.

Of late a lot of interest has been generated in using the Partition Recovey Wizard of MiniTools Partition Wizard (PW).

Venerable gregrocker brought out a new feature – extending a partition with even non-adjacent space - in the MiniTools Partition Wizard (PW) here: http://www.sevenforums.com/software/265776-amazing-new-partition-wizard-feature.html

On the data recovery front, there is little, if any, documented evidence of the Partition Recovery Wizard in it being deployed to restore a partition that had turned RAW.Traditionally TestDisk (TD), with many advanced features, has been the tool of choice in the freeware category.

So, in a way, this writeup exploring PW for data recovery from a RAW drive, is a first of its kind. Side by side, I have also used TD. Be ready for some surprises.

The MBR partition table and Volumes boot sector are the two places where the partition information is stored. When Windows is unable to read this for any reason, it reports it as RAW (though the data is still there).

I had no drive that had turned RAW and so I had to “manufacture”. This was done by zero filling the first sector.

For this experimental exploration, I used two flash drives 1. a more recent 16GB SanDisk Cruzer Blade and 2. an almost first generation 1GB imation flash drive.

These were first lowlevel formatted with HDD LLF Low Level Format Tool v4.25 followed by a FAT32 Full Format with HP USB Disk Storage Format Tool v2.2.3. A generous amount of file... Read more

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!

Hi-

I accidentally started to install a new version of XP Home on an existing partition that had a good working XP home on it. 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?

Hi Guys,

I have two HDs, 80 Gig primary and 120 gig secondary. I had win xp installed and running off the 80 gig and I backed up all my files onto the 120 gig. I then decided to format the 80 gig drive

I used a win 98 boot disk and formatted the 80 gig hd. then I started the win xp cd and it asked which partition I would like to choose. 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 looked for my files and 120 gig drive but it was gone. I'm really going crazy. So I researched a little and I have two utilities on disk (mbrwork and testdisk) I started to run mbrwork and it has been searching for recoverable partitions for the past 2 hours. 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.

Thanks

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.

>>I checked with one of my favorite software producers, Acronis, and found this. If it works like the other software I use from them, it'll be all you need.

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 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.

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.

Hi everyone,
I was trying to format my laptop and install a new version of Windows 8. I deleted my old Windows 8 partition and tried to install the new version, but I got an error about some GPT stuff.
I've looked for what it is and I found out that I could have just reinstalled Windows 8 using the Update and Recovery of Windows.
The problem is that I don't have the Windows 8 partition anymore. Is there a way to recover it now? Or do I have to install a new version of Windows 8?
In case, could you tell me how to go around the GPT problem?

My Laptop is a Lenovo Z580 and I haven't done anything after deleting the Windows 8 partition.

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.

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. Fast forward 2 weeks, and my RMA is denied from Newegg:   Your RMA (RMA Number: 60470880) return was received and sent to our Inspections Department for closer examination. 34-313-740 NB LENOVO IDEAPAD Y510P 59406636 RTSystem has been modified/altered original manufacturers operating system has been removed cannot access restore partition, this voids Newegg w...

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?

A:Recover deleted partition table

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

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.

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.

You haven't given us your system specifications and we don't know whether you are using a factory-installed copy of Windows or a retail copy of Windows.

Do you have any recovery discs or a Windows DVD?

The first thing to mention is that your hard drive can have no more than four primary partitions. One of those partitions can be used to create logical partitions if needed.

Looking at your current drive structure, you need to delete the logical drive D then move the System Reserved partition and the C drive to the beginning of Drive 0. You then need to delete the E partition, and then extend the C drive to take up the resulting unallocated space.

The best way of doing this is to use Partition Wizard, which you boot into to carry out your disk management, apply the changes, and then boot back into Windows when you're done, as this tutorial explains.

A few months back, my girlfriend accidently infected my computer with a virus that spread itself through her USB stick. The infection was too difficult to remove so I decided to reformat.

I've installed windows XP on one partition but it seems my other one is missing. I know all my files are still there because i'm only using half my hard drive and i've used a few recovery programs to attempt to recover it. One of the programs (a very old one) finds the partition and even allows me to see all the subdirectories and files. It tries to recover the partition, but using another program I saw that it makes a partition of the correct size but all other programs see it as an error.

Can anyone help? I'll be glad to give more details if asked.

Thanks,
James

I tried shrinking my Windows 7 64-bit OS volume by 128GB to make room for a new partition and lost it in the process. My harddisk capacity should be 465.76 but now shows 337.76 GB.

I have an attached document with a screenshot of what it shows in device manager. I have downloaded the free versions of Partition Wizard 9.0 and Power Data Recovery 6.8 but I cant seem to be able to restore the lost sectors.

Can anyone direct me on how to recover this partition?

Thank you.

A:How do I recover a lost Partition?

The only way I see to get the space back is to first Shrink the C: partition then create a new partition in the resultant unallocated space. I've found that by deleting a partition any data in it is usually lost. That's different from inadvertently formatting a partition which sometimes can be recovered.

So, my problem started earlier this week when I tried to scan my Hard Drive using my antivirus system. Never do that.
My Vaoi laptop froze at 27% during the scan, and I had to manually shut it off (hold down the power button) and then restart it. Well, it started the scan again, and got stuck again, so I had to restart it again. The next time, I was able to read this millisecond long message about how to "cancel dskchk by pressing any key", so I did, but then it just took forever to load and opened on an error message saying that windows couldn't load, or something along those lines.

Eventually, after figuring out how to open safe mode, I tried to use a Restore point (which didn't work), Refresh the System (which couldn't complete), do a lot of maintenance scans (none of which helped), consult the internet off of my friend's computer (where I heard about the windows.old folder), and then I was finally forced to use the Vaio Recovery Tool and do an emergency backup onto my new External Hard Drive... It semi-worked, but a lot of my files weren't passed over to the external drive, and I'd like to get them back.

The files I care about are mostly image and document files (jpg, bmp, Word, and Notepad) and the folders they were in were all on my Desktop, but I don't know how to get them back. Some are there, some aren't, it's all just really confusing. So, now, I'm currently running three different Data Recovery programs ... Read more

A:How can I recover lost/deleted files after a Windows 8 reset?

Thanks for the alert about the dup. thread. I closed it.

When you don't have a backup I don't know what can be done except for trying recovery software, as you have, or if the data has suddenly become very important there are companies who can, at least sometimes, succeed where free software fails.

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?

A:How can i recover lost partition and data in it

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:
Free Partition Recovery Software - EaseUS Partition Recovery.

Hi!

I had both Xp and in7 on my comp. Unfortunately something got messed up, and suddenly both could not boot, it said that there was something wrong with the BCD and i had to insert the Win7 installer DVD. I did so, and it repaired the error, but due to a side effect i lost my Xp entry in the MBR ( i think the whole boot configuration was rewritten by win7 ), so my Xp does not boot now. How could i make it boot again?

Hi Guys

This is my problem :

my SD CARD, 8GB .. 5 months ago, it become RAW, so there where I found out about Testdisk, it fix it.

Last week, same problem appeared, I tried TestDisk .. but nothing happened, after many times, I tried , this option in testdisk 7.0 -----> MBR code..... then It was fixed , and I was able to see my files .

however I just couldn't access to one particular folder, so I used CHKDSK, it deleted the whole folder

then after a day , THE SD CARD, went RAW again.... I tried again TestDisk, it says that the CHS and LBA don't match , I tried again MBR code, but nothing happened,

So I thought maybe if I format it with ( My computer --> management ---> Disk Management ) I could recover my files .. so I format it with FAT32 .

Now I tried more than 20 software, none of them could recover a single file.

and this what I see in Testdisk :

and also It said , NONE partition table has been detected o_O

Please help me ... I really need this SD card, more than anything, it contain all my studies files, my PHD dissertations, it's my life, and am really hopeless .

It least a way I could recover the RAW .. as it was before I format it.
Thank you

Hello,

I am working on a Dell N5110 with Windows 7 Ultimate (32 bit) running in it. Few hours ago, I saw that the D drive (200 GB approx.) in my computer is missing. Previously I hadn't installed anything that might have caused this problem. I tried fixing it with "Active Partition Recovery Toolkit", it is showing me the data present in the drive but is not able to recover it. It keeps on showing some kind of an error.

I also checked the status of the drive through "Disk Management". There it is shown as 200 GB of free space. I have some valuable data in there. Is there any way I could recover the whole drive ?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks. Cheers!

If you have System Restore turned on for the D: drive, I would try that first. This tells you how
System Restore For future use, as soon as you get the problem corrected make an image of all of your drives using Macrium Reflect FREE Edition - Information and download and you can restore the image in 20 minutes and correct the problem. Let us know if the System Restore works.
