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

Thinking....

File sizes seem appropriate for relatively low res photos, dates look pretty good although a couple of odd ones.

If you double or right click a file does it allow you to do anything with it, like copy it to other media?

Recover D and E only. And perform a filesystem check. All fine...no errors? Then install win7 in unallocated space

ah that I didnt check. No worries about dates. Those are long aged ones and new. Those were pics from a 5mp phne. And transfered from old storage to this and some are edited. So modifie date changes and exif info are gone.

Just checkd, nothing happens when ryt clicked or even presing ctrl+c and ctrl+v.

No, not yet. Waiting for both of you 2 agree. U guys are realy nice.

So, 5fing and kaktusoft, shal i proceed? Recovering only D and E and then installing windows.

Remember, i thnk I dont have mbr yet i thnk. So would it cause any malfunction not to recover 100mb and C?

"system reserved" not needed! Unless you want to encrypt C using bitlocker. Install win7 in unallcated space.
check filsystem of D and E first!!

no mbr??? what do you mean. partition table is in mbr. Do you mean correct mbr boot code?

and kaktussoft, can I recover partitions 1 by one? Like 1st C: to see if that works., then D or E. Or should not. Cuz it will be writing and writing over the partition table? So, waiting, how do I proceed?

1. One by one( if its not harmful, I like to recover and check befor I do anything with D and E)

2. Only D and E in a one instance and then reinstall windows? ( dont know would this Either damage partition table)

3. Or recover all four of these?

What would be the most suitble in safety of data?

Don't recover C it's useless now (just formatted)
system reseerved not needed.

Recover D and E at once and do a filesystem check (check only).

That thing I talked, isn't something i know. I had a doubt that they were difrent because of this includes a command to rebuild mbr and then partition recovery. I asked that before too. Anyway, if its not concern about my data safety, I dont care

Trust me.. .do what I adviced you to do. Please post if filsystem check works without errors. And if partitions are NTFS. Maybe you have to reboot to PW after recovery so PW maps drive letters to it. Only partitions with drive letters can be file system checked
