i have a single hard drive with 2 partitions. 1st partition with Windows 7 OS and the second strictly for data.
yesterday i decided to try software raid using windows disk management.
firstly, i added another identical but empty hard drive into the computer. boot it up and went into disk management. i right-clicked on the 2nd partition (data partition) on the original hard drive, and selected add mirror. after a few seconds, the disk management tell me an error "failed redundancy" on both my old 2nd partition and the hard drive i just added. so without thinking much, i decided to delete volume on the new hard drive (bad move!), and guess what, it deleted the new hard drive volume together with the original hard drive's 2nd partition (contains data!). now it is showing as unallocated space and i have not format nor create a new volume over it.(i think the data is still intact)
is there anyway to recover the volume? please help!
*i know there is a fix within windows using dmdiag but that is for non-mirror volume(dynamic disk) only. also tried with easeus partition master but still unable to recover the partition as it is a dynamic disk.
*minitool partition recovery doesnt work either for dynamic disk..any other recommendation?
