Sorry, I thought that you had already recovered what you could with Partition Wizard.

Did you "Apply" after it was recovered at step 14 in OPTION FOUR in the tutorial below?

Convert a Dynamic Disk to a Basic Disk

I did Brink, anyway I recovered my other hard drive, however my Drive G: RockyX3 is asking me to format it, actually the unallocated space were on my Drive G it was extended on my Drive G



And why is it raw? I tried to extend my Drive G, though this appears:

I haven't pressed yes yet, I'm waiting for your experts answer.

DO NOT press Yes. You do not want to convert the disk to dynamic.

Were you not able to restore all partitions on Disk 1 at once as in the tutorial instead of one at a time like this?

Yes I wasn't able to restore it all just only my other drive which is Drive: L
as you can see in this image:


This once 3 we're a drive (The unallocated space we're on my drive G: RockyX3) after using Minitool Partition Wizard the volume was been into pieces. Maybe I did was wrong? I'm using the v7.1 version while on the thread you gave me was 5.2? (I think, not sure). That's why I haven't been able to follow it. The only thing I just need to recover is this Drive: G, My Drive: L is fully functional at the moment.
Thanks, Brink.

Are you able to run the "Partition Recovery Wizard" option (top left pane) on the selected L partition to restore it separately?

Did you want to merge the unallocated space to another partition on the disk, or recover it as a separate partition?

Sorry for confusing, I think my files weren't actually deleted since it's still on Drive G on Mini Partition Wizard. I think by merging unallocated space on the Drive G would help me recover all my files on Drive G without formatting it. Sorry for confusing you Brink, english is not my main language.

You would only want to try and restore the disk exactly how it was before you deleted it. If the disk originally had partitions where the two unallocated spaces are now, then merging them (extending another partition into them) could destroy any chance of recovery files from them.

Have you already tried using Recuva to see if you may be able to recover any files from them?

I tried recuva, though i can't see my "MAIN" files on it. It only show things that I don't need e.g jpg, png, mp3 etc etc.. Most of this files is videos, and the folders became thumb.db

Is test disk worth trying? Is there any application that I can retrieve things on a raw hard disk?

Edit: see it brink? it's not totally 345.57GB. It's
829GB

before my HD was destroyed, it was orginally 829GB
came from Unallocated space: 93.74GB & 389.94GB
