Windows 7: I'm trying to retrieve data from drive

Can you explain to me wat does the partition recovery do the the hd as i'm afraid that it will damage the recovery partition also? Does it combine all the partitions into one?

I did a full scan using Partition Wizard Home Edition and the software found quite a number of lost/deleted partition. I'm not able to select all the partitions as it is stated that some of them overlap each other. What will happen when i recover them? Is it going to be repaired or will these error partitions be forming new partitions?

i've also done a surface test on it and found 8 errors. Is there anyway to repair it?

Thanks

The partition recovery option in Partition Wizard attempts to recover the selected HDD/partition that says it's unformatted from here to hopefully not lose the data on it.

Let's see if we can access and recover the data first. Afterwards, a new thread would be appropriate for the 8 errors since it's not on topic with this tutorial.

Hi,

I'm having trouble with recovery all the partitions as some of them overlap according to the software. Below is a link to two screenshots i had taken from the software.

Can i know how do i recover the partition without having to delete any of the partitions?

Thanks

Kango,

If you can't recovery the partition with only selecting one of them, then you might try the free program that it recommended below to recover the data from them.

Download free data recovery software and data recovery boot disk from Power Data Recovery.

I've finally gotten to access my drive after letting my desktop scan and repair it.

Thanks Brink for the help you have given me along the way.
