All looks fine.... only the used space is a problem.
I suggest:
  1. Recover that 200GB partition
  2. reboot to PW
  3. check used space again
  4. Perform a filesystem chck (check only!!) on partition
  5. explore that partition and see if there are files
The only thing you did by this operations:
  • changed partition table
  • looked in that partition: filesystem check (check only) and explore
You can always delete it again (in PW) and start over! Or do a "diskpart clean"

before I execute corections, please take a look at the scan result picture. Ah that C shows 88mb used and 100mb reserved is the one with 9.74mb used. I typed them in memory while full scan runs. So, here I am trying to post a pic, dnt how well it would go. If u can imagine what i see now, i have typed lot about cluster sizes. If i cant upload, I wil typ the results as it is appears.

Take no notice of any drive letter assignments. They will be different. You have to go by volume labels (if any) and partition size/location.

Kaktussoft, im do not doubt your knowledge and expierience.
But is this safe? Can I change my partition table 3 4 tyms without damaging how it was?

And, of course, D: is my main concern. But If its posible, i wouldnt like to lose e: too. Cuz thats loadz of downloads. Project pics, software setups, lot of linux distros etc.
So, I think I didnt got exactly what you said. But take a look at my pic.
And you rely not giving me tym to upload ah

C: 88MB-> you did format it. 88MB is sort of description of the blocks that are used and unused. So even a empty formatted partition has used space

system reserved: only about 8MB used of 100MB? looks like it's empty as well. Did you format? Anyway not an important partition

Let's recap....
"system reserved" and C ..... you don't mind losing them
200GB very important
Other partitions: Very glad if it's recoverable. (they have correct used size?)

Once again.... I don't do anything with the data ...only partition table. Procedure can be done many times! Very safe if you do what I said.

Waiting for camshot. If not possible.... describe as good as possible what you see. C and "system reserved" no description needed

thank god it worked, I cant upload 2 photos at once and cant include a comment. So thatz the result from quick scan. Took it with my phone 5mp and had to resize to 2mp as it doesnt allow uploads more than 1mb. So is it clear enough? I mean the pic :)

Thanx for screenshot

Recover 200GB partition only. Reboot to PW and look at the used space. Do a "file system check" (check only) of that partition. Any errors? Explore that partition. you see files?
