Partition not visible in My computer<<Used diskpart clean only.

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hi everyone,

I made the mistake of using diskpart clean (only NOT clean all) command,

on my local hard disk, so the command deleted the partition that does not contain

the OS and gave me an error message that it couldn't delete the partition

that has the OS. since then I tried using testdisk and it does detect my deleted


partition and i choose to write a new partition table option and reboot


but still i can't seem to recover that partition that has my graduation

photos that i have no back up for.

In the attached images you'll see that the partition is intact and i can even see

its content but i don't know what's going on!

please guys, any nice help would be appreciated..

Thanks in advance!

If you right click on where the drive is blank (in the first image) and choose "Change Drive Letter and Paths" You should be able to assign it a drive letter and if that works it will appear in Computer.

Firstly i misunderstood you, i thought you were referring to the unallocated

space. now i see the blank you were referring to. Thanks a lot man.

i spent five hours yesterday missing with recovery software, when

all i had to do is just to assign!

here's a rep+ u deserve it.
