halp i lost a partition

Recommended Posts

i tried to use acronis disk director to split an empty partition and apparently there were some bad sectors that the disk check didn't turn up (how's that, i don't know). so instead of a 233GB -> 200GB(files+freespace) + 33GB(freespace) i wound up with a single 120GB (all freespace that was available) partition in the original's place. there's a missing partition (with all the files) that isn't showing up. Acronis shows the partition as the original 233GB with 120GB free but Windows shows a empty 120GB partition.

 

anyway i can get it back? aside from sending the drive to a recovery place... i don't think anything that important was on there, but i'm not sure

You could try PC Inspector File Recovery to recover the indivisual files,

 

or you could try using FDisk to partition the drive exactly as it was before. Hopefully nothing has been overwritten, and doing so will restore the partition table to the way it was and your Data will show up. Don't format anything, just partition exactly the way the disk started...
