inaccessable missing partition

hellow,


the problem started back when I installed partition magic 32 bit version on my win7, after installation it gave a message which I dont remember but it was some kind of drive fixing message I clicked yes and then my second drive drive D: got vanished since then I tried access it via partition wizard and acronis disk director suite and both softwares show all the drive data on the partition but I cannot copy it, I tried changing drive letter but after apply for action it stays the same and windows disk management utility gives an error while changing drive letter "The operation failed to complete because the Disk Management console view is not up-to-date. Refresh the view by using the refresh task. If the problem persists close the Disk Management console, then restart Disk Management or restart the computer." I just want to copy my data from the drive to my external drive so I can format the whole drive and make it work.

Is this Partition Magic by Semantec? If so it does not support Windows OS later than XP. In Vista changes were made to NTFS that XP software cannot know about or support.

If another software please specify.

Did you use Partition Recovery Wizard in Partition Wizard? Did double clicking on the selected partitions show you the files?

The Partition Explorer in Partition Recovery Wizard can only show the files but you cannot copy them. You have to close the Partition Explorer and click on Finish and then Apply for the partitions to be restored.( If necessary, give the same drive letters to the partitions as it existed before, before clicking on Apply). Your HDD will be restored to its original condition and you should be able to access your HDD as before.

Have a look at this Recover a flash drive turned RAW Partition Wizard and TestDisk. Go to the topic Recovery with Partition Wizard: SanDisk Cruzer Blade 16GB and follow the steps.

hmmm....you said "both software PW and Acronis show all the drive data on the partition but I cannot copy it."

Never mind. Run Partition Recovery Wizard in Partition Wizard as in the referenced thread and check whether you can recover the partition. Instead of the pendrive it will be your HDD in your case.
