Windows 7: invalid dyamic disk detection in my windows 7.

20 Oct 2012   #1

invalid dyamic disk detection in my windows 7.

I recently took my internal hard drive and bought a casing for it and made it external. But when i connected it to my computer the disk management showed it as invalid dynamic. So i went online, read a bit about basic and dynamic and ways to convert the latter into former. I adopted the method of converting through changing "hex" using "HxD". Now when i changed the '47's to '07' , i got back my three partitions without any data loss one of which was system reserve. I do not know how to get the rest back. Please help . i cannot loose the data. I have to get the other three back.
Total no of partition =6 (including system reserve)
No. of partitions recovered = 3 (including system reserve)
No. of partition i need back = 3

Thanks in advance.
