Clicked Delete Volume on wrong partition in Disk Management
I've an external drive that has two partitions. I wanted to merge them and Clicked Delete Volume on Windows 7 Disk Management......but on the wrong partition.
There's no undo feature :-(
I've seen this but understand it only works on Windows 2000 and XP. How To Recover an Accidentally Deleted NTFS or FAT32 Dynamic Volume
I've also seen this Free Partition Recovery Wizard - recover deleted, lost partitions with EaseUS Partition Master.
I havn't done anything to the drive and don't want to do the wrong thing in case I start loosing data.
Has anyone used "EaseUS Partition Master" once it's restored the partitions are all the files intact? Or do I then need to use a file undeleter? I had about 91GB of data on the partition and don't have another drive at the moment with that much free?
Are there other software downloads that can help me?

I took a gamble.....
The key here was that I did not do anything with Windows or the drive, once I deleted the Volume.
Recover Deleted Partitions. Undelete Partition. Unerase Partition. Restore Partition - EaseUS Partition Recovery and Partition Table Doctor was perfect.
EaseUS Partition Recovery for free restored the partition and this included all files on the partition so no need for an undelete too.
