Hard Drive Partition Deleted. Need Help!

Hard Drive Partition Deleted. Need Help!

Hard Drive Partition Deleted. Need Help!

I have an external hard drive. Which I plugged into my laptop. I synchronized my drive space, but accidentally hard drive partition deleted during disk management. As a result, I am not able to see my partition to which I had access earlier.
Can I recover my same partition with data?? sad

RE: Hard Drive Partition Deleted. Need Help!

The key is to NOT do anything else to the drive. Unplug it from the computer until you have the recovery software installed. I've used this software (paid version) but go ahead and try the free version. You should be able to get everything back if you haven't done anything crazy to the drive since loss of partition AND it's not physically failing.

You could try this too, but this is a Chinese company so there's that little bit of hesitancy in my mind.

I second GetDataBack, Goom's fist link above. It has worked wonders on a ton of drives I have used it on. I have also had luck with Recuva on a freshly deleted drive before if no alterations were done to it.

Good luck, Goom has you headed in the right direction.

There are tools that can dig deep into the architecture of your lost universe and retrieve these sacred scrolls of knowledge. EaseUS presents you with scannable drives, guides you with an intuitive interface, and gives you the option to preview all recoverable files.
