Current situation: 1 HDD with 2 partitions(C and D drive)
Result: 1 HDD with 2 Partitions. Partition 1 empty; Partition 2 containing 2 sub partitions(original/back up C and D drive).
Problem faced: I formatted my HDD to 2 partitions successfully, however when I did a system restore from my back-up(in external hard disk), my HDD was reformated to its original partition(current situation) just like before. Hence losing the empty partition.
I don't want to do a clean install as my laptop comes with some preinstalled software which i don't want to lose.
thanks in advance!
