Quick Scan Failed!

The above quick scan gave a 'white screen' and Windows Task Manager reported "Not Responding."

As I processed the snip for posting the Windows Task Manager changed to "Running" and I was given the choice of this under "Choose Searched Partitions."

NTFS New 1 TB WD... Starting LBA 2048 Ending LBA 1953521663 Used Size 931.51 GB Size 931.51 GB Existing

I double clicked and I see my file structure.

Is it as simple as checking the box and invoking 'Finish'?

Screen shots are attached:

thanks

Assign a Drive Letter?

I just reread the tutorial and encountered this last point:

Step 6: assign a letter for the recovered partition(s) using "Change Drive Letter" feature if you want to see it in Windows Explorer, and then click "Apply" button on the top to perform partition recovery.

Does this apply in my case?

Otherwise it looks like I should just 'finish' it.

thanks

Warning Message - About to Delete At Least One Partition - I Said No

I clicked on "Finish" and encountered this message:

"Warning
At least one of the existing partition will be deleted. Are you sure you want to continue?"

It looks like there is only one existing partition, or do I fail to understand the terminology. Will my one partition be deleted as per the warning?

I'm tired and not thinking straight. I decided to stop the Partition Wizard and go to bed.

I hope someone who knows more replies by morning.

thanks

In a New Window? Options Seem Different

I backed up as far as the program seemed to allow me to do. I could not see how to back up to where I was asked to choose between "Quick Scan" (which I chose) and "Full Scan." I can still use "Explore Partition" and see the file structure I want to recover.

I will add screen dumps of where I am now and the result I see when I select Partition Recovery (see red arrow.)

Can I close the program at this stage without damaging the data that appears to still exist on the disk. At least the Explorer shows the folders I expect.

Do I need to open a new thread with Partition Recovery in the title?

thanks
baumgrenze

Safely End Minitool Partition Wizard Free

I hope this is not seen as 'cross-posting.' (See Win7/Pro x64 - Booting Very Slow ......) of 2/28/17.

In an attempt to get my Win7/Pro x64 machine running properly again I followed a suggestion that I try Minitool Partition Wizard Free.

My 1TB data disk somehow got changed from NTFS to RAW.

I ran a surface test and found 1 error in the 9th cell from the start. My primitive understanding suggests that a flaw in this part of the disk might be just where the master boot record is/was located. If this is the case, can this otherwise 'clean' (no surface flaws seen) disk be resurrected?

I then moved to partition recovery and requested a quick scan. I chose to scan the full disk because only one partition showed. I am concerned that I might not have checked the box in the Choose Searched Partitions window (screen shot.) I cannot seem to get back to it.

As I progressed through the process I encountered a serious warning saying that if I finished I would delete that partition. I decided I needed expert advice and tried backing out of the process. I left the process running all night. I was too tired to make intelligent choices.

Can I safely shut down the program from this window (see screen shot) or did I 'back out' in the wrong way? The 'partition explorer' showed me the disk structure I want to recover, so what I want appears to still be on the disk.

If and when I get it shut down, would it make sense to try once more paying careful attention to the check box or is this operation not included in the "Free" option?

thanks
baumgrenze

I had just given a quick read through. Right now do not do anything until I return. I shall be busy this my forenoon. Go to sleep and then when you wake up you can see my post. The chances of recovering the data are bright. But nothing will be sweet until I eat the cake. Do you have another 1TB external drive to copy all data?

Thank you, Jumanji!

Yes, I have an external 2TB drive for backups that has 1.76 TB free. It has not been used anywhere as often as desired. As I explored it, I was disappointed to discover that there are no files in some folders I'd assigned to drives I thought I'd backed up.

I trust you will describe the technique for creating the copy you mention. I can see no details in Windows Explorer for my data drive.

While there I checked my System Disk and discovered 21 MDMP files all created on 2/27/17 at 9:26 PM. Might this be significant?

Your advice about sleep is well taken. I was up until just past midnight last night (PST)

I look forward to your input.

thanks

A Reply From Minitools Support

Here is a paste of correspondence with Minitools which arrived as I composed my first reply to you. I edited out only personal information I did not want in this post.
I checked and Partition Wizard shows NTFS but Disk Management still shows RAW. I won't do anything more tonight, but we need to consider their suggestion.
Dear baumgrenze,

It's safe to shut off the program in the NewScreen window, because our program haven't done any change. In addition, does the sentence "Minitools Partition Wizard identifies the disk as NTFS and not RAW, which is what I first found in Windows Disk Management" mean Partition Wizard shows it as NTFS while Disk Management shows it as RAW? If yes, we suggest using Check File System feature of Partition Wizard to fix the issue. But if this fails to work, you may need to use MiniTool Power Data Recovery to recover data at first.

Download Minitool Power Data Recovery v7.0 Free edition
http://www.minitool.com/download-cen...d/pdr7free.exe

Note: The free edition and full version of MiniTool Power Data Recovery have no difference in function, but the former can only help you recover 1GB data while the latter has no such limitation.

Best Regards.

I'm confused. In a response to a post on sevenforums.com I was encouraged to download Minitools Partition Wizard Free 10.

I am trying to recover a compromised 1 TB HDD. A surface scan using your software found one error in the ninth cell from the start. Might this be the part of the disk used for the MBR?

Can I safely shut off the program in the window you see in the attachment called .....NewScreen.jpg?

I ask because Minitools Partition Wizard identifies the disk as NTFS and not RAW, which is what I first found in Windows Disk Management.

Finally, is Minitools Partition Wizard Free 10 capable of recovering this disk or do I need something fancier like your 'Pro' edition? I am uncomfortable paying for that if it, too, will tell me it can't accomplish what I want to do.
