Windows 7: Deleted system partition first Win 7, HDD part missing, 30gb lost

Deleted system partition first Win 7, HDD part missing, 30gb lost

Hi Guys,

so sorry for writing you if this is something that is usual and you already have cleared this issue.

I am Ranko, from Europe ( Serbia, but in the eyes of world not so desired country so I do not mention it... but great food , great parties and the most beautiful girls should compensate )

Ok. What I did. During Win 7 installation on my new Lenovo G780 ( 500gb HDD ) , I have deleted system ( 0 ) partition first.

Win 7 offered/created 30gb system, 30gb primary, 440gb primary 2 ( unallocated ) and one Lenovo OEM partition 1mb.

CRAZY ME DELETED SYSTEM PARTITION FIRST!!!

As my friend said , always first go from behind but I didint.

Now I am missing 30gb of space, and can not retrieve it. So if I do installation from the beginning i just have 470 GB of space to alocate to partitions ( for example 100mb system , 100gb Primary & 369gb Primary 2 )

So 30GB seems lost. I have installed win 7 and run diskmgmt.msc and only 1 disk with 470gb is shown.

I tried linux with that partition software and the same... it shows just 470gb of space...30GB are missing/lost/not existing.

Once again... so sorry guys for posting this issue since maybe it is something that is common, but I really do not want to give up. It is not up to 30GB , it is about the principle , I have to retrieve it!

What to do ? Please help ... I promise to post some video, pics of Belgrade/Serbia girls to ease up a bit your work

Hello Ranko and welcome to Seven Forums.

There is a free program called MiniTool Partition Wizard. You may be able to get back the missing 30GB by using the "Partition Recovery" option.

Or, if your computer is working OK you could also try extending the C: partition to include the unused 30GB.

Hi Marsmimar,

thanks. I will try... but I have already tried that HS home or what ever called partition manager and it sees the deleted partition, but when I try to recover it just reduces the 470gb to 430gb and creates one more of 30gb...

As I promised
