Thanks for the reply.

Would Parted Magic allow me to restore the partitions I have lost due to imporper "repair" done by Partition Magic?

Partition Wizard bootable CD linked by Bare foot Kid above has a Partition Recovery utility located on its Disk tab. It will scan the HD for deleted partitions and recover them if possible.

If this doesnt work, then try Paragon Rescue Disk which also can Recover partitions which have been deleted. If not, it will also scan for files to copy them out if possible.

Thanks Greg, I haven't had time to see if PW has that feature or not.

Try This To Restore Partition

I used Partition Magic to resize a partition and had an interruption during the process and was unable to access that partition.

The only option I was getting in computer management - Disc Management was ....Format this drive.

I read around and was pointed to this program... Partition Table Doctor 3.0

I used p2p to aquire (which I do only in emergency situations) and ran it...boom...there was my partition returned with a message saying that any corrupt or incomplete stuff would be in its own folder if found.

Go slow and think it out as you use this program because it asks a lot of stuff. Like ending sectors being wrong and such, I just went ahead and said OK to all this and let it run.

I forget how long it took, not anything like hours though.

Hope this helps. Good luck.

Thanks for the reply everyone.

Right now I am recovering data by using Easus Recover Wizard and saving them on an external drive. Fingers crossed everything will be good. I would have to format the partitions aftewards.

After backing up the data, I did not have much luck with Parition Table Doctor. So I went ahead and reinstalled windows 7 on my C:

To my suprise, all my partitions are back after a clean install of Windows 7.
