Please post back a screenshot of your maximized Disk Management drive map and listings:

1. Type Disk Management in Start Search box.
2. Open Disk Mgmt. window and maximize it.
3. Type Snipping Tool in Start Search box.
4. Open Snipping Tool, choose Rectangular Snip, draw a box around full map and all listings.
5, Save Snip, attach using paper clip in Reply Box.

Tell us what is on each partition.

What makes you think the data partition is empty? You don't say.

Run a Disk Check on the partition now.

If it fails to see it, install free Partition Wizard, rightclick on the partiiton to Check File System.

If it still fails to see the data run

Hi gregrocker thanks for your replay.I went to organize/folder and search options/view/show hidden files.
For some reason all my content was hidden but I manually unhide all folders and seems to work now.

Your files should not be hidden. Did you have a fake AV virus that hid your files? Did you disinfect the data before reinstall?

If you manually unhid files hidden by the infection, you still need to disinfect files and possibly run Unhider to restore them. The infection may also leech into the new install if it wasn't disinfected from the data as it should have been first before reinstall.

Well no, I just formatted the C: drive and let the D,and E drive content untouched.
How can I clean the content? I have a free version of nod32 antivirus.

Well I'd run it on the data and OS, as well as a full updated scan with Malwarebytes .

Do you know why the files were hidden? This is unusual unless a virus did that.
