The partition that was used for storage doesnt even show up, before it was turned into free space it was labeled H:.

could you carry out the diskpart sequence again and this time change the cmd shell screen to full screen size so that my aging eyes can read the snip you have made?

Thanks.

Yep, type 0f. If you had win 95, I'd expect to see that.

What have you been doing to get a partition type of 0f?

This does not bode well.

There are a couple of recovery tools although they are not free and I do not know if they will even recover for you.

I'll do some research and see what I can come up with.

Maybe some of the other chaps have actual experience with this problem.

I suggest you use a 3rd party tool like partition wizard to pull the existing logical to the left to use the unallocated space.

I don't want to be guilty of any permanent loss, but if the commercial partition recovery programs such as active@
Active@ File Recovery is a file recovery software for Windows

then one can try changing to partition type to 07 with DiskPart. If info no immediately available, then maybe recuva or another recovery program will be of assistance.

For knowledge about partition and size limits, etc. and since this has changed since the Win95 and dos days, then:

nformative regarding the number of partitions and the sizes is:
