*Important* Accidently deleted volume in Disk Manager, how to recover?

Question: *Important* Accidently deleted volume in Disk Manager, how to recover?

Hi I had 2 external hard drives connected and in disk manager I clicked delete on the wrong one? So now the drive wont show up, so I simply created a Simple volume and know it is a RAW drive? How do I recover the files there was over 100GB and some of them are really important such as records and work related stuff, it is currently a RAW partition and all the hard disk recovery softwares dont recognise it because it is a RAW drive? do i have to format it to recover the files? Please Help!?!

Preferred Solution: *Important* Accidently deleted volume in Disk Manager, how 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.)

Answer: *Important* Accidently deleted volume in Disk Manager, how to recover?

Do not format the disk.
this would make your task more difficult or even impossible.

There are free partition recovery tools available on the net.

Question the deletion, was it your operating system or are you still able to boot into Windows. I have never been in this position but someone will post some software for you. Just don't muddle the disk any further.

If you are able to boot into Windows this link will give you an idea of what you are looking for. Hang on because I know some forum members have done this will be suggesting more software.

Answer:how to recover accidently deleted OE folders

Relevance 84.87%

I'm having difficulty recovering someone's Outlook Express emails and was hoping someone might have a solution to this (w/o the use of 3rd party apps):

The main OE mail folder and backup folders were accidently deleted. When they were deleted, a message said the Recycle Bin was full and "would you still like to continue deleting them"-or something like that. And they were deleted. Now I'm trying to recover those dbx's. I ran ActiveUndelete 5.1 and it found some dbx's-probably all the folders but they were empty when I brought them back into OE.

There are too many recovery email programs out there to run and test, so if someone can provide better help to get these emails back in OE, I would appreciate it!!! Thanks
 

Answer:Trying to recover OE emails accidently deleted

There are several good ones, usually free, at www.majorgeeks.com. I can recommend, in their Data Recovery section, Restoration, Recuva, Recovery 4 All Pro but it costs $69, File Undelete (which is good if you are needing documentation for a client, and PC Inspector.
My favorite is one I cannot find at the moment called ABC Recovery. It is free for the first 30 days. Works great on internet files.
At www.tucows.com, look for Recover My Files, Restorer2000 Data Recovery, and a few others listed there... all good.

Ok I am going to create a new thread on this, as I had been posting on one dated from 2012 that was an identical issue, but I think starting a new thread would be better.

I have a 1TB Western Digital HDD.

It is not my OS.

It is my data storage drive, with over 850GB of data and applications installed on it; while my OS resides by itself on my SSD.

I also have a small 1GB usb drive.

I was attempting to set up the USB drive as a bootable and was about to wipe it clean.

I was in Disk Management in Windows 7.

The WD showed up as 932GB.
The USB showed up as 934GB

I got the two mixed up, and I accidently deleted the Volume on the WD.

I did nothing else at that point, other then have a complete and total panic attack, nearly lost my dinner into a toilet... then started Googling for a solution or fix.

Google brought me here, to this thread - Undelete Hard disk Volume and recover data!

The poster appears to have done the exact same thing I did, and even posted that they found their own solution.

I've signed up to this site just for this issue which I've had for over a year. Here are the details:

Samsung laptop RF511
While I was cleaning out all the extra programs the laptop came with, I accidentally deleted something that was crucial for my disk reader. Whenever I pop in any data disk or movie, the computer struggles for a few minutes then gives up, as if nothing has been inserted. Oddly enough... I don't believe this always happens with music CDs. The computer also hasn't be able to let me burn anything on a blank disk. I often receive the "Please insert a blank disk" message, when one is already inserted.

This is getting really frustrating since I have a lot of data to backup and absolutely need help! I'm not a programmer and would need thorough explanation and a walk-through for this please.

I went to the Samsung website and looked at what might be missing (had no idea what I was doing...) I downloaded something called the BIOS updater, which did nothing unfortunately.

Please let me know if something sounds familiar and how I might be able to replace this bloody program I foolishly deleted!
Thanks a million.

Hi all

My first time on the forum and i'm clueless where to proceed with the above problem. What happened is as follows.

1. I installed 'Virtual CD 5.0.6' on my desktop.
2. I installed 10 virtual drives (labelled drive G to P inclusive)
3. I have an external hard drive (labelled 'Local Disk: L) which was turned off when i installed Virtual CD.
4. When i turned on the external HD it did not show in My Computer (presumably because i had accidently allocated drive L as a virtual drive (see point 2)
5. I have uninstalled Virtual CD (and all 10 virtual drives) but still do not get my External HD icon showing in 'My Computer'
6. When i go into device manager the Maxtor External HD is showing. And when i go to the 'Unplug Eject Hardware' icon on my tool bar the HD shows as a USB Mass Storage Device (but without a letter)

Any suggestions? The Exteranl HD connects via USB and if i unplug/plug back the USB lead it does not show a 'New USB Device'
So i'm assuming that the HD is ok but i need to get it showing again in My Computer.

Thanks in advance
 

Answer:Accidently deleted my 'Local Disk' icon in 'My Computer'

Think i've sorted it out. I found the following suggestion in the forums

Right-Click My Computer
Select Manage
In the new screen Select Disk Management

I did this and my external HD was there (Without a drive letter) I assigned 'L' back to it, re-opened 'My Computer' and it was there.

Sorry for wasting time, will know where to come in future

I accidentally deleted my portable hard drive volume when messing around with Disk Management on Windows 7. The hard drive is formatted using FAT32 and is about 120GB. Is there any way to recover it? I have all media and some important documents in there. Any help would be really appreciated.

Thank you.

Answer:Help recover deleted volume

Hi,

You can use the undelete option in a 3rd party partition manager. As long as you haven't attempted to change that partition in any way other than delete it, should work fine.

If you have a partition Manager - see if it has that option. Post back and let me know.

Hi guys,

My name is Ivan. This is my first post here and I hope I will enjoy this forum.

However right now I'm in big trouble. My brother decided to install some linux distro
on the laptop that we both use. He decided me without asking if I have some important
info there. He told me that he wanted to make a dual boot system (I'm not fully aware how it works)
and he said that he did it before, but now just erased my whole disk by mistake.

I thought that this is some bad joke, but when I checked (I gave the laptop to friend of mine who run live some software to show partitions) the whole disk was emty except some folders of the new OS.

I cant describe how I feel right now. Is there a way something to be saved? He told me that he shuted down the system on the moment he realized what was going on and not even 1% of the new OS was instilled. But the fact is that there is nothing anymore...

Please help guys!
Thanks in advance!

Answer:Is it possible to recover files from deleted disk?

Changing to a version of Linux usually formats the drive differently from Windows and recovery may no longer be possible. Shutting down a partial install usually has done the formatting before copying files so again, there may be nothing possible. This may have some help:

Can a deleted file be recovered from an image/clone hard disk?
 

Answer:recover deleted file from image disk?

Welcome to the Board see7102!

Not sure I quite follow your question. You deleted a file from your hard drive, but had previously cloned the drive to another drive? If so, and the file existed when the clone was done then the file is still on the other drive (unless it was deleted there as well).

Or, did you make an image of the drive and saved the image file someplace? If you made an image, then you may be able to access the file from the image with out having to restore the image. For example Norton Ghost has Ghost Explorer, which will let you pull one file out of an image file. Other imaging programs likely have something similar, but I'm only familiar with Ghost 2003

What software was used to make the image?

Once you get it running - copy the data from your hard drive to an external drive. Do not copy to the Ubuntu drive as the data will not be saved on shutdown.




Then wipe the drive with Killdisk (double-check your backup first!!) and re-install Windows.

I have many volumes and on each of them there is a recycle bin. Can deleted file be in recyle bin on another disk, volume? For example if reserve space for Recycle Bin on this volume is over. Or each Recycle bin is only for it's volume?

Answer:Can deleted file be in recyle bin on another disk, volume?

Hello userwin,

Each volume has it's own hidden protected OS $Recycle.bin file that stores deleted items from only that volume. One volume cannot have it's $Recycle.bin file on a different volume. It must be on itself.

When you open the Recycle Bin, it lets you see all the deleted items from the $Recycle.bin files from each volume there much like a library does with included folders.

If you like, you can change the storage size of the recycle bin for each volume to fit your needs if free space is available to do so.

Recycle Bin storage size

Hope this helps,

Answer:Accidentally deleted volume under disk management

You should be able to go back into Disk Management to re-initialize and reformat the drive. With the Disk Management window open, look down at the list where the individual drives are listed in bold print (it should list Disk 0, Disk 1, the CD drives, etc). The drive in question should be listed; right click on the bold print for the drive and choose initialize. Once that is done, you should be able to partition and format as usual.

With that much important information involved your best option is to head for a professional data recovery service and pay the fee over depending on any retail product that could be pointed out. A quick web search will find enough of those like Active Undelete for example.

The smart move would be to bring the HD in for them. This is their specialty there.

I had to do a System Recovery yesterday on my WinsXP-Pro, media edition.

It caused me to lose all my documents that were in "My documents" and the ones that were being kept in WordPad...Grrrrh...

Is there any way to get them back without taking PC to a recovery specialist?

Help me restore my accidently deleted Adobe Photodeluxe 4.0 pictures. The thumbnails are still in My Photos. The thumbnails have an inverted green triangle with an exclamation point and says the file does not exist. It seems to me that if I can see them as a thumbnail there must be some way to recover them.
Please help me - my Trash can is empty so no luck there.
Carol in Michgian
 

Answer:HELP accidently deleted Pdd's but thumbnails still there

Those aren’t really Photodeluxe pictures. They are simply defaulted to open in that program. You could change that association with a couple of clicks to the Windows Picture and Fax viewer or Irfanview and every JPG on your computer would suddenly stop being a Photodeluxe file. Nothing would have changed in the file except what program would open if you clicked it.

I’m guessing you are looking at Photodeluxe when you see the thumbnails and get the message. It isn’t common for My Pictures or the Windows file system to give that message and keep thumbnails for photos that were deleted. Since the photos didn’t show up in your recycle bin it is possible Photodeluxe just lost track of them.

Write down the file name of one of the images then close Photodeluxe. Start > My Documents > My Pictures and see if they are there.

If they aren’t in My Pictures, Start > Search > All Files and Folders. Type in the file name of the picture and “Search”.

One of the Wild Tangent games locked up, decreased size and tried to do the task master to get it to close.  But was able to bring up the wild tangent game list - couldn't see the whole list as it was hidden under the game that was stuck on my screen.  Therefore when I made a guess, I accidently deleted the whole Wild Tangent Game App and it automatically took away the HP Games.  I tried to download the wild tangent game app and it will not allow me too.   Checked and made sure it was still not on my apps/programs and it wasn't.   Even did a recovery back a few days and still the system will not allow me to download the app.   Any help at there?

Answer:Accidently deleted game app

Greetings, You may be able to find Wild Tangent games in a folder on the C drive called SWSETUP. Also try HP's Recovery Manager. See if you have it (SWSETUP) and check Apps or other subfolders carefully. It gets a little murky if you upgraded to Win 10.  Cheers!

Hi everyone hope you can help . . . This is my first post, so forgive me if I mess up.

I have accidently deleted a file on my C drive . . . C:\Users\David\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows
It is the Temporary Internet Files and is now causing problems.
If I run CCleaner it Hangs/Freezes, when it comes to that file and even Task Manager will not close it! I can't even restart the PC, I have to crash out.
When I then restart, CCleaner is closed but the samething happens if I run it again.
I have tried to create the file again, but it says "Confirm folder Replace" This destination already contains a folder named Temporary Internet Files . . . Do you still want to merge this folder.
If I say yes, it still doesn't appear. I have Administrator privileges and it is not hidden (I have a reasonable knowledge of computing)
Hope somebody can put me on the right track.

My crappy antivirus software detected explorer.exe as having a worm, but this was a false alarm. BUT i accidently deleted explorer.exe and now when i log onto my account nothing happens. The background is still there but the toolbar disappeared and nothing works..only Windows Task Manager works. I run windows XP btw.

I REALLY need to recover my files back so please tell me how i can either restore explorer.exe and fix this problem or AT LEAST get my files back. THANK YOU!!
 

Answer:Accidently deleted EXPLORER.EXE

Okay, well.. you shouldn't have been able to delete explorer in the first place - It is very hard to do.

Explorer is basically the thing that lets you use your computer. Here, Refer to this post - http://forums.techguy.org/archive-windows-nt-2000-xp/370715-explorer-exe-wont-load-after.html

or try this.

Fire up the task manager, run cmd and then c:\windows\system32\restore\rstrui.exe from the command prompt (edit the command if you didn't install windows in c:\windows). See if system restore can rescue explorer for you. If that doesn't work, run appwiz.cpl from the command prompt. This will fire up the add/remove programs panel. Uninstall sp2 and your old explorer.exe should work again. If you want sp2, reinstall it. Then make a fresh copy of the sp2 version of explorer.exe and store as backup. Make another copy to feed to resource hacker.

Hello, I was trying to expand a partition but deleted a partition in the process. I have a SSD and HDD the the partition which took about half of the HDD space.
On the HDD was a storage partition, system reserved and the deleted partition. So it is currently unallocated. I've tried running recovery programs they find it but
it will cost me money to restore it since I'm using the free version. What should I do now? I've attached a picture of what it looks like currently
I've tried using testdisk I cant really understand it.
 

Answer:Accidently deleted partition

Was the partition you deleted = to the unallocated space or was E: the partition you were expanding. Did you actually expand E: or stop after you deleted your partition? The less you write to E: the better as this could be overwriting data you are trying to recover if E: was indeed expanded into your previous partition space. If the unallocated space was equal to the partition you deleted and E: was not expanded then you have a good chance of recovery.
 
Do you have an external drive with enough free space to recover your data?

Answer:Accidently deleted MS Office (help)

Hello,

Those programs would not just delete the software from the hard drive. Check in the C:\Program Files\Office folder. It could also be under Microsoft Office. But those apps do not delete software from a hard drive like you are describing.

If you can not find the media and you do not have the serial available then yes. You will have to buy a new copy.

Hello everyone,
I had major partition problems and tried fixmbr,fixboot,etc and even rebuilding bcd was not working. I was misguided by one of the other Forums and entered:
DISKPART Select Volume 1
DISKPART Clean Volume 1
The Volume has been cleaned
[If it was to delete all data, I thought it would ask Y or N]
where volume 1 was my C drive. I had data on other drives. Immediately after this the computer hung and I was forced to restart. All this while the MBR was not working and I was on Windows 7 installation disc. Now it does not detect my Hard Disk or any of the Volumes and shows Hard Disk as 249 out of 249 Gb free. I have no choice but to go to Windows 7 Disc where there are no installations or data.
Of what I have read, this command only clears the Partition List..
While I was trying fixmbr, I even used gparted Live disc where it turns out that there is some "recursive" bug which was found.
Please help me, there is vital information on the disk as it is my office computer.
I need to recover all the data. Its very urgent. I have committed a huge blunder but is there way ?

Answer:DISKPART clean performed accidently. how to recover data?

So I downloaded a new anti-virus program and foolishly I just let it automatically remove all threats without checking what was being quaratined/deleted. It quarantined/deleted my winlogon.exe so when I restarted my computer it will just restart over and over again.

Then I tried to boot from my windows XP disc so I could access the command prompt to put this in:
copy d:\i386\winlogon.ex_
c:\windows\system32\winlogon.exe

Although before I can get there this message always comes up:
Stop: c0000221 unknown hard error
\systemroot\system32\ntdll.dll

So does anyone have advice as to how I can get my winlogon.exe that's been removed from my system32 folder back to where it belongs?

Is there an easier way to do this other than using my windows xp disc? such as burning a new winlogon.exe to a cd and copying/pasting it from that?

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Answer:Accidently deleted/quarantined my winlogon.exe

you could use something like BartPE, Linux Live or Symantec Ghost to copy the file outside of Windows or the recovery console.

Worse case scenario you could try a repair install but you'd have to get all the Windows updates again after doing that.

Were you running the actual normally-hidden Administrator account or a User account with administrative rights? For normal/standard use I've not seen where that hidden account could be easily deleted but I guess if someone works at it they could be successful. It's hidden by default and has to be activated for temporary use then deactivated [probably to protect us from our own foibles].

While playing around with Command Prompt I accidently deleted the users on my computer. Now when i logon to the "Select User" screen there are no users listed and cannot logon. Please help.

Answer:HELP! Cannot Logon... Accidently deleted users

You accidentally deleted the users on your computer? You'll have to explain how you've done this? did you delete the user folder's in "Documents and Settings"?

This could be recoverable, but the way i'd go about it is in a way quite long winded and you need a copy of XP (not for a complete re-install or anything, it's a requirement for a copy of bartPE)... then either a usb stick or CD-r/rw and access to another pc...

If you want details on how to fix it using this (long) method then please reply (including details of how you deleted the users)...

Actually i have another idea, re-boot your pc and boot in safe mode (to see the administrator account):

Code:
- reboot
- tap F8 until you see a "configure how windows starts" screen [or something like it]
- choose "Boot in safe mode"
- if there's an administrator account then try log into it (I think by default there is no password so just clicking administrator will log you in)..
if you cant log on as administrator then you may have problems fixing it...

Now, you need to find a way to download the program "Free Undelete": http://www.officerecovery.com/freeundelete/

- To do this either:
> [i can't remember if internet functionality is the same in safe mode or not] but try download it

I am not sure what procedure you used to install, so I will just start from square one. == Put the Windows DVD in the DVD drive. Boot your computer. This should get you up and going to install. When you get Windows installed you can then adjust your partitions. === You said above "you were unable to install the new OS". What problems did you have? Fill us in a bit more on what happened when you tried to install Windows and we can go from there. Thanks,

Hello Everyone, HP Pavilion with Windows 7. I thought I was deleting files from a DVD in E: and I accidently deleted the four files in D:.  It did ask me for administrator rights to do that. As soon as I realized what I did (immediately) I went to the Recycle Bin and moved them back to D:. D: now reads as: HP_RECOVERY (D.  I am not positive it said that before.And the 4 files in it are:RecoveryHP_WSD.datHPSF_Repmsdia80.dll Am I okay?  And is everything back where it should be?  Or do I need to do something else to fix my mistake? Thank you for your help. Rick

Hi,

I've a feeling there is no solution to this but here goes, my daughter deleted the recovery data on her L300-299.
Is there any way of retrieving it ? The partition was formatted so I couldn?t get anything back.
Does Toshiba do standard iso's or anything in these circumstances? Any help would be appreciated.
Frankly

Answer:Accidently deleted recovery data

Unfortunately there is no way to retrieve all these data.
Recovery data are also not downloadable.

Only thing you can do is to order new recovery DVD under https://backupmedia.toshiba.eu/landing.aspx

Ok, so I went to defrag my computer and accidently some how deleted the games that come pre-installed with windows, like Solitare, Mines etc. I have Xp BTW. anyone know how to get them back?
 

Answer:Accidently Deleted the Windows XP Games

I just Googled and here is what I got for ya'.

To restore the games go to Control Panel, then Add / Remove programs. In
the new window go to Add / Remove Windows components, a new window will then
pop open if you double click on 'Accessories and Utilities' then go into the
'Games' folder and make sure they're all checked.
