Help to remove the partition on a hard drive and data recovery

I have two hard drives in my PC, the C: drive is 80 GB, and the F: drive is 120 GB.  The second drive (120 GB) is divided into two partitions.  I just deleted the partitions and makes the hard drive again in a single disc, however I had some important files on the F: drive that I thought I had copied to the C: drive but they are not there.  Is there anyway that is using the software I can return the drive to two drives and recover my data, please help

Hello

First of all, do not use the hard drive. This can make things sunk. A few things may already be unrecoverable. I would even delete the drive letter to stop inadvertently automated processes to use.

There are two ways I can think of.

1. buy a partitioning software disk that supports the undelete partition. On windows XP PartitionMagic was a very good product if symantec will still sell it. Given that Symantec has continued to develop, I had to switch to product partition Paragon. Sound was trash to some things, cloning in particular a double boot with loads of partitions - it has an undelete function which I didn't use. The fact that you have created a new partition could mean that the restoration may not work. You may need to delete the current, probably empty, partition everything first and then perform the restoration.

2. buy a data recovery software that will scan the hard drives, including the unpartitioned space. I chose R-Studio and it was very good stuff even recovery from hard drives that fail. It was not 100% effective, but it is perhaps down to the severity of failure rather than the product. In situations like yours, it was very effective.

Please mark this as useful or response if applicable.

  • Helps to remove the HP Pavilion Desktop Hard Drive

    So recently I bought your desktop HP Pavilion from Best Buy a few months ago. Thing was running great until this morning, when the hard drive has suddenly decided to go belly and FRY on me. I called HP Support and they are sending me a free HD to replace the bad, but I need to remove and return them. No problem, I think I'll open the chassis out. Little I didn't know...

    I really don't know who designed this thing inside, but to reach the screws to remove the hard drive is almost impossible for someone like me who has no specialized tools. I got two of the screws, but the front rear one I can barely see and even less to reach, and I don't know there's a fourth that I can't even imagine reaching. I hope someone can give me something special or a detail that I'm missing that will make this possible, if not, I am at a loss how to proceed.

    Here is the info on the machine:

    HP Pavilion Media Center

    Product: KT334AA-ABA

    Model: m8530f

    If it is necessary, I'll post a picture of her womb. If anyone has any info that can help me to disassemble this beast, I would be eternally grateful!

    You must insert the personal media at the front of the computer player. Remove the front panel, remove the screws which fix the cage of the front's personal media players and pull the Green tab by dragging the cage in the front. You will then be able to easily remove the drive.

    Do not hesitate to call HP, they will be happy to help you with the installation of the replacement drive.

    1. with respect to the first question: your system files have been corrupted. Do a System Restore before the app was used.

    Try you "tune up", "maximize", "registry cleaners" or any what kind of app that promises to improve the performance of your PC somehow. None of them improve anything, often at the antipodes (as you discovered). Microsoft W7 already has all the apps. you need to keep your PC in tip-top condt. Try not to add anything.

    All these various named apps. are all 'snake oil' and very dangerous to use. However, you will find a lot of 'logic' online promo. material from "authoritarian" sites as to how will be beneficial for your PC. Not drawn in by these Advertorials :)

    2 the hidden partition is probably "restore to factory condt." partition rescue/recovery of the manufacturer of your computer. This can be used for the rescue of PC when things diabolically wrong with your operating system and cannot be set by any other means. You need an ISO image (clone) of the OS partition and MBR (master boot record) only, not the entire HARD drive.  Including the partition of relief are a very good idea but I'm not familiar with the software cloning you use.

    Download Macrium Reflect free edition for purposes of cloning and recovery and make the CD

  • How to display ONLY the photos on my hard drive and remove the duplicates it.

    I bought Photo Sweeper but have heard warnings of ' reference fileis and the risk of the original photo, sitting on the hard drive.  .  Is there a way to see ONLY photos on the hard drive and use Photo Sweeper here?

    Background: on my HP PC for years, I've created folders for each Member of our family.  Thus, a paper copy of each group photo were regularly filed in each issue of people pictured in it.  Migration to iPhoto and iMac five years ago, all copies of the same photo were transferred on my Mac.  More recently, I've migrated my iPhotos library of Photos.  I would like to clarify these multiple copies to a hard copy, but I feel of the complications and risks. In particular, the integrity of all the projects I did (for example attach a photo to the album, a book or a slide show) could be compromised if I happen to remove the copy special paper which refers to this picture (the correct term?).

    It seems to me that, if I could see the actual photos on the hard drive and use the double Finder here, I could get the job done.  I could combine that info (faces, keywords, descriptions) that I added on a large number of copies and sign him for a single copy and then to eliminate duplicates. Would this work?   Back to a project, I could see a photo with a warning icon, a yellow triangle with an exclamation point inside, which indicates the hard drive file to which he referred is now defunct.  I could (I guess I could, but how!) change things to make this photo point to rest a copy on the hard disk, couldn't I?

    Tips appreciated.  The notice are maybe just don't not to alter my photo library, but it says that I have almost 30 000 photos. I know this isn't so.   Thank you.

    Your question is not clear

    What Version of the operating system and Photos you have? You have a referenced library or a managed library? What specific "warnings" topic referenced b = files you are?

    Please explain what you have and what is your concern

  • After installing the new hard drive and using recovery discs, I get this message could not start because the following file is m issing or damaged system32\drivers\pci.sys

    I just replaced my hard drive with a new because the other HD said imminent failure or something like that! Basically the hard drive was about to fail and I so now the new one installed and I used my recovery disks and all seemed well until the recovery disks have been completed and the computer says to get out them. Then the computer restarted several times and then I get this message:

    Hello panjok2,

    Sometimes recovery CD are dependent on the architecture of a hard drive.  If it is different from the original disc, then we have problems.

    In this case, the best thing you could do is contact HP and see if this is the case.  If it is not why this happens, they should be able to help you as well because they are the ultimate authority on their recovery process.

    Let us know if you have any questions.

  • How to install a new hard drive and create recovery disks before installing the new drive?

    HP Pavilion Dv5 - 2077 cl/entertainment laptop
    Product #: WQ799UA #ABA
    Windows 7 64 bit

    Hello-

    So for a while now, I get a blue screen randomly, popping up all the time and some time, who is going to "clear my physical memory" or something and then restart after like 30 seconds. I posted in the forums, once it all started and support told me to run tests and finally told me that my hard drive has been the reason for these constant errors. Then I backed up everything, in anticipation of a real accident.

    I'm about to order a new hard drive from Newegg.com, and I would like to know if it is difficult to replace a hard drive in a laptop, or if I should have Geek Squad do it for $50. In addition, I don't think I have the disk for the operating system that came with my computer, how do I order that HP and how much is it?

    And, last but not least, is there a message or a video with instructions on how to install a hard drive and operating system?

    Here is the hard drive Im currently looking, if could let me also know if this would be my laptop and if it's a good idea that would be great:

    Thank you very much.

    Hello

    Yes, that's exactly what you do

  • replacement hard drive and using recovery discs made by myself.

    HPdv6 mobile 2119tx. After replacing hard drive and loading the recovery discs (which I did) successfully, now it reboot something messages cannot locate the disc or load bootable disc (sorry, don't remember the exact wording, but back to the beginning). Could this be because I replaced a 650 GB drive with a 500 GB drive.

    Hello:

    Normally you cannot use recovery on a smaller hard disks.

    But you should be able to boot from the first disc of recovery at least and see what happens.

    To do this, you must have the first disc in your dvd player.

    Restart the PC and at the beginning of your homescreen HP, tap key ESC then choose one time start in the menu.  Since then, select the DVD drive and continue.

    If the ESC key method does not work, press the F9 key instead.

    It depends on the type of BIOS in your PC (normally according to his age) which key you need to type.

  • Cannot change the letter of the partition of my hard drive even with regedit

    Hello

    I have an annoying problem that I can not get rid. I have 2 hard disks that are exactly the same, just the second was purchased later.

    I used one with the letter F: until one day I connected the secondary hard drive. Since that day, my first hard drive has changed his letter. I did 2 things:

    (1) I tried to go to the computer, disk management, changed the letter but F: wasn't available.

    (2) delete \DosDevices\F: in MountedDevices using the registry editor, as explained here.

    But when I restart the computer, F: / is still not available and \DosDevices\F: still exists.

    What can I do?
