Windows 7: diskpart/clean by accident....need to recover partitions,begging :'(

I do not use Macrium so don't know if you've proceeded correctly. Most imaging suites want unallocated space.

Do you even intend to back up your data regularly now?

Of course Greg is right. Always make backups and don't cry. And making backups on same physical drive is not the smartest thing to do.

But if you use Macrium the right way it doesn't touch D and E. sys reserved and C are being restored now. When finished you can explore with Partition Wizard. All NTFS? All Primary? Sys reserved active?
If so try to boot from harddisk. if failing... perform a "startup repair"

Startup Repair - Run 3 Separate Times making sure SysReserved has content and is marked Active.

PW Rebuild MBR can also work at that time if needed.

I'm beginning to see that the data was not as critical as you led us to believe yesterday. Otherwise you would have copied it out at all costs, first thing.
Yes it is greg, just take a look at my D explorer screen shot just after recovery. Its all are picture folders, i think it contain bout 5000- 6000 pics. And that doccument folder contains all my autocad drawings, asignments( finished and on going) for 2 years and all quantity surveying related books and notes., and don't know wheather image captured a folder named 'Apsara', my gf, my life, all our videos pics contain in that. And within that, theres a locker file containing all my passwords.

But I dont care whats in E. Image was contain in that. So I thot its okay to to so and kado and kaktussoft said so, then I got confident.

And ryt at the moment i do not have anything to copy 150gb except for 16gb pen and a 4gb pen. Then i copied my asignments folder and gfs folder in 3/4 and some of my fathers photos as he is deceased. So can you tel me these are not important sir?

It is up to you to decide what is important to you and back it up accordingly.

It sounds like you need a 320-500gb External HD. They are not expensive if you shop.

You can also back up 7gb free (and more cheaply) to the cloud with each Windows Live/Hotmail account on Skydrive. You can even Sync Any Folder to Your SkyDrive Account | PCWorld

Macrium did its job succesfully? Can you boot your system normally?

suspect,
Let me second Greg's recommendation regarding SkyDrive.

the present SkyDrive is quite usable. See the link provided by Greg.

I use SkyDrive for two reasons: 1 ) as an additional backup (I still use Windows Backup and Restore to an external usb drive) and 2) to give me access to my files from anywhere.

okay guys, here I am posting with using chrome. it did great and I have all my files and names on it. but 1 thing, cause that I wanted to clean up C: is still here I think. notebook took bout 3 and half mins to get ready to work in ful and in the first boot, I had message says windows was shut down on some error and asking wanna check it later. so problem still exist, so I think I wanna clean re installation.

and gregrocker, kaktussoft, karl, I know how important it is to backup data. but these I did not wanted to have a second copy. cuz some are very confidential. I am not keeping backups in the same drive. this was kept in here because if I had a failure while Im away from home, I can get it up and work though. thats what I had in mind keeping a backup here. Actually I keep two. this base one and one that have all the softwares installed. so I think im not wrong at there but thinking ahead as Im using a notebook and travels. I think you guys agree with that.

Everything from backup restored succesfully. Now you can boot ... sort of... went back in time when making the backup.

and of course you have same problem as then!

You want a clean install anyway?
