Windows 7: Clicked Delete Volume on wrong partition in Disk Management

Clicked Delete Volume on wrong partition in Disk Management

Hi,

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?

Many Thanks
Louis

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.

Cheers

So I just miss-clicked "Delete Volume" in Disk Management
Hello, I was just checking my new disk in Disk Management, and I was about to extend the volume I already had, when I miss clicked and deleted the whole volume. After some research it seems that I can recover it, because the data isn't lost yet, but I didn't find any solutions for win7 yet....
