I believe file recovery software like Recuva scans all of the HD.

In the future, remember to back up your files externally at all times.

If I remember correctly, Recuva can only scan actual partitions and not unallocated space. I am unaware of any recovery program that can scan unallocated space. (Since the operating system you run on will only see it as literally nothing, nada, ziltch)

If that was directed towards me, then no. Sorry, I do not have much knowledge in regards to recovery of files after being deleted.

Last time I attempted to use Recuva, it failed. Miserably. I wish you the best of luck and hope someone more knowledgeable in this area can help you.

Hello.

I would also like to create the 100MB system partition.
I cannot use the automated windows installation to do it because my Windows is located on an external disk and common installation and repair methods refuse to work on USB drives.
(I installed it with the deployment tool imagex, before I created a primary partition manually, leaving 100MB of unallocated space)
It works right but it hasn't created the 100MB System reserved partition.
Everything has been installed on to the C: partition instead.

How could I manually create that partition Or how can I get that Windows use the unallocated space for it?
I cannot see the option to "tag" a partition as "system" (keeping it hidden and not primary) on diskpart or Easeus partition master.


Thanks
