Windows 7: Western Digital drive showing up with Unallocated in disc management

03 Jun 2013   #11

Windows 7 Ultimate 64

OMGGGGGGGG!!!!!! jumanji all I can say is... I ****ING LOVE YOU MANNNNNNN!!! Afters days of searching with no luck I can finally smile again!!! Your solution and step by step guide worked perfect for me!!! I used "testdisk-6.14-WIP" before finding your guide and it didn't work, but for some reason, it worked this time... Hard disk was showing as UNALLOCATED DISK 1 under "Disk Management" and it wouldn't let me assign a letter to it or work with any other software... I tried GetDataBack,AOMEI Partition assistant,easeUS Data Recovery, and WD disk utilities... All I can say is THANK YOU a million, there are no words that can express how I feel right now. THANK YOU for your time and dedication.
