I also recently had success using Rescue Kit Free Edition | PARAGON Software Group - free partition software, hard disk partitioning when my partition table was wiped due to a failed partitioning of my System drive.

Well the solution was very easy,just few clicks.

Iv downloaded and installed the Free Partition Magic alternative (no need to pay\buy anything).

I run the minitool partition wizard,even after the hard disk volume is deleted you can see all the hard disks physically installed in the list.

So i right click on the hard disk,i click create,apply,restart,and tadaaaa the hard disk is back to life and with everything inside unharmed,programs,data,files etc.

No any undelete program is needed.

OMG! Im sorry to resurrect this thread but I need help and I found this thread via Google!

I did exactly what the OP did here, I accidently deleted the volume on my Western Digital HDD.. and full terabyte of data and this is my main data storage drive.

I followed the OP's solution PRECISELY... downloaded the exact same program and ran it, and did precisely what the OP did... and after rebooting, my HDD is still wiped out and has nothing on it!

I need to get this data back, its very important to me, is it still possible in same way to restore what was lost?

Ok I am following the instructions now provided in this link...

http://www.***********/data-recovery...e-freeware.htm

I think it is going to work, its says its found up to 1500+ files so far, but its going to take 2 and half hours to fully scan...

Ok I guess I cant post the link... its the "EaseUS Freeware to recover data from NTFS Volume"..., which I also found via google...

so far its found over 100,000 files... but I dont know what any of them are yet, its not listing anything recognizable other then a few folders with weird names containing characters I cant even type...

gonna go to bed for now, let it finish and presume that when I wake up it will show me a more complete listing of everything its found, and hopefully some of it will be recognizable... I'll post back on that, sometime later..

Ok the EaseUS program found everything; all of it recognizable folders and file names.... over 850GB...

However the program will only allow me to recover 1gb for free, I'll have to buy their $70 version to recover the rest...

So now I am trying a different program that I found called Active Partition Recovery, that will take another 2 hours to fully scan the HDD... not sure how much GB it will allow to recover off its free version, but if it says I'll have to buy a fuller version, theirs at least is only a $40 upgrade...

But I am wondering, is there not a cheaper (free) and easier way to accomplish this?
