partitions disappeared after re-installing Windows 7.

I was using windows 7 with 4 partitions C:-27 gb (15 gb free), D:-30 (6 GB free), E-33 (4 gb free), and F:-60 (7 gb free). Once my system got hanged and i did force shutdown.Then again i installed windows 7 and during installation It showed only 1 partition like "C: partition1 (NTFS) 152000 MB (15 gb free)". After installation Its showing only the c:27 gb and all my old folders are there in place whatever I had in my C:. but system not showing the other 3 drives and their data. I tried EASEUS partition manager and in that its showing C: as 152 gb.

So kindly help me to get my all the important files which I had kept in the other 3 drives (to which i m unable to see)

Use your Snipping Tool and give us a picture of your Disk Management. That will help a lot. If you are not sure about using the Snipping Tool, let us know. Thanks,

The Word document is not working. Just open the Snipping Tool in Start Menu, choose Rectangular Snip to draw a box around the maximized Disk Mgmt drive map and listings. Save and attach the file using paper clip in Reply box.

Did you interrupt Win7 during install? Were your files backed up beforehand? Your files should always be backed up before any install or repair.

Well, something took out those partitions (either the system corruption or you formatting the drive) if you were seeing the whole drive has having free space upon reinstall of Windows. Your best bet is a partition recovery program as Greg suggests above and hope that it finds them and can recover them.
