If that fails, PM me. And do NOT write anything else to the drive or format it.

Yeah its been blacklisted on the disk mgmt so I haven't been able to do anything on it besides run the remo recover tool. I did open Utorrent but Utorrent which is linked to the drive couldn't find it so I'm guessing its still all good? BY which I mean I haven't been able to write anything to it and no formatting has been done.

Well I'm running testdisk now. Looks like it'll take some time. its analysing the disk although it seems faster than remo recover

Doesn't seem like it can recover it through TestDisk. It only give me one partition, the "system reserved"partition even though I had deleted it. I dunno what else I'm supposed to do.

system reserved section is only 104Mb so it could read it

No I haven't formatted it. I was about to but quit to see if something like this was possible. From what I read, it seems like Testdisk needs somewhere to copy the recovered files to. I mean the HDD is deleted and it is not formatted so it can't really have anything saved to it.

Unless you're telling me testdisk can rewrite everything despite the partion not having any form of format
When you delete a partition, none of your files or the MFT get overwritten - the partition letter is simply removed, and the MBR is updated to say the drive has no partitions.

TestDisk can scan for partitions (locate them in about 2 minutes flat), then rewrite the MBR. Poof, all data/files reappear.

If you format in Disk Management, you overwrite the MBR and MFT. After doing that you must go down the time consuming deep-scan-for-files route. You'll get them back, but they may not have names or be in folders. It'll be a massive jumbled mess.

Yeah, really. That's why I hammered that post out 2 minutes after seeing your post. Less chance of you doing anything that could damage your data. tongue.gif

It's not detecting anything else? Did you select Intel/PC (MBR) and try both the Quick Search and Deeper Search?

^Well I'm running quick search agian. Afterwards I'll run deeper scan. I had to drive 3 hours back to college.

But no last time I ran it, I only ran the quick search. Anyway I hope the recover programs I tried didn't damage anything

Recovered all my data thanks to Pioneerisloud's recommendation. IF any of y'all find yourselves in my situation, use EASEUS Data recovery
