Do you know what the total size of the drive is? Is it bigger then 320GBs?

In that other screen shot you posted of the setup asking where to install to it only shows 1 partition of 298GBs.
How many partitions did you have?
What kind of PC is this, maker?
Did you use a manufacturers supply recovery disk to do the repair?

If you have a flash stick installer, then boot it to follow the steps I gave earlier to try to access and copy out your data: Copy & Paste - in Windows Recovery Console - Windows 7 Forums

Then write the Partition Wizard bootable CD ISO to flash stick using Win2flash USB method

Boot PW, highlight HD, on Wizard tab select Partition Recovery Wizard, scan for lost partitions.

Are you sure there were separate partitions, as you'd really have to delete them for them to disappear.

Glad it helped.

Did you discover how your C partition got extended to the full HD?

Did you have to resize it to fit the recovered partitions back on?
