Windows 7: My Disk Drive Disappeard

My Disk Drive Disappeard

Hi everyone

At first I had two Drives, C and D and I wanted to extend my C drive so I used "Disk Management". I shrunk my D drive but I couldn't add that unallocated space to my C drive so I boot up from a CD named "Hiren's Boot CD 10.1" and used a utility for that purpose. it showed a few messages about fixing errors of my hard disk and unfortunately I selected "Fix".
When restarted my laptop, unfortunately I saw that my D drive disappeard but fortunately my C drive and windows are good ...

So now I really don't know to do what ...

Please help me, my life depends on it

Hi, welcome to the forums

Can you post a picture of your Disk Management? Just click then right-click Computer, select Manage then click Disk Management.

Do you have an Unallocated partition showing? If so you can create a simple volume. If you had data on it that you need then you may want to try Partition Find & Mount to recover the data.

Note   Note
You can only extend from left to right unless using other software like Paragon

More info in the following tutorials

Partition or Volume - Shrink
Partition or Volume - Extend
Partition or Volume - Create New
Partition or Volume - Delete
