Sorry, you have gone for Data Recovery using MiniTools Power Data Recovery. which even if it succeeds will allow you to recover only 1GB of data unless you buy it.

Please run Minitools Partition Wizard as indicated in my post #8 in this thread http://www.sevenforums.com/hardware-devices/366797-raid-5-became-unallocated.html#post3045528
and post the screenshots.

I didn't want to repeat the whole thing again and that is why I referred to the above post in my previous post #48 and asked you to do acccordingly.

You seem to have overlooked on it and going on a different path.

Sorry for changing lanes. Let me try and come back in the same lane as you.

I will download the software from >> Free Partition Manager for Window PC | MiniTool Partition Wizard Free Edition

Then i will run the software.

Shall i cancel this scanning process? It seems to have froze i think, and if it hasn't i feel it will take weeks. Tried using easeus also few weeks ago and it did not recover everything. But the time kept moving and this was a way to know it did not freeze.

Ok i had to disconnect and reconnect the external for the wizard to recognise the external.

Here is a screenshot.

Ok it is Read only. Again you failed to post the screenshot of the drive in windows Disk management. That is the first screenshot I had asked for. that to be followed by PW screenshot. I always require those to be snapped at almost the same time one after the other - and not any past screenshots. And the third after quick scan.

Please present all three in one post. It is going to be a slow process where we may need to go back and forth.

I have a one track mind . So wouldn't discuss your new 3Tb drive in detail now. But just tell me what software you used to format it. One disturbing feature I notice is convert to MBR is greyed out.Why?

But may be soon I will ask you to format it as a GPT drive using Partition Wizard and post a screenshot.
