Computer Restarted while shrinking HDD help

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Well i was shrinking the HDD on my netbook so i could copy stuff to a partition on my HDD and the computer restarted half way through.

Now the problem is that the HDD is only reading it as a 200gb insted of a 320gb. the 120gb partition i wanted to make is gone. Is there any way to get this back??

Go to 'disk management' (right click my computer icon - manage - storage --) and post a screenshot here. Actually you can do it without help too, in the 'disk management' section, you will find your missing partition in an unformatted manner. right click it and convert it to an ntfs partition.

huh..... boot up with windows disk, when it shows the installation screen see if the 120gb part is showing. if it is there, format it. now cancel installation, get back in windows and it will be there.
