I understand.. tell me later.

But is it the FIRST (so on left side) partition on physical disk that you try to recover??
Did you create it with EASUS partition manager bootable disk, or from win7 installed program?

Yes it is the first and also the primary one (i think) the partitions were made with the win7 installed program

Primary or logical isn't important (at least now). You can have maximal 4 primary partitions, or 3 primary partitions and 1 extended on that physical disk. The extended partition can contain a lot of logical partitions.

A partition MUST be ACTIVE only to make it the BOOT partition. And only a PRIMARY partition can be ACTIVE.

I have a 1tb external hdd, which is partitioned into 4 parts, 1 main (about 750gb) 1 for ps3 (120gb) 1 for linux (4gb) and 1 for a 'shared area' between Win7 and linux. Everyone i have tried so far can only find the PS3, linux and the shared area. not the most important one aka Main one. I am running partition wizard full on every sector of the disk, it has found 4 3.01mb partitions labeled as 'boot'. It is at 14% (very slow)

This is an external drive he's talking about.

Whole disk was formatted so no unallocated space? 3 partitions have been recovered. So lost partition in the space that's now unallocated. It can be recovered easily if "diskpart clean" didn't wipe part of it. "diskpart clean" only wipes the first 1MB of physical disk and that's where MBR and partition table is.

Normally in win7 partitions are aligned to 1MB boundaries.... so easy to recover. But I don't know how easus creates partitions! If I know where the other partitions start, I know if they are aligned properly. If not aligned properly.... most likely partition 1 is also misaligned and starting before 1MB boundary. So partly overwritten by "diskpart clean"
