Windows 7: one of the partition is unallocated in my 2TB EXTERNAL HARD DRIVE

one of the partition is unallocated in my 2TB EXTERNAL HARD DRIVE

I were recovering my data from 2TB external HDD using remo recover. During which my system went off after that i were unable to see my HDD in my computer but it was there in Disk management where it was having four partition , don't know how because it was never parted. the structure was something like this(shown in disk.png)
Somehow after reading few articles and tutorials i got to manage and converted it into two partitions which looks like this now (disk_2.png) first partition is working fine i.e after clicking on new simple volume it changes to healthy partition showing 80GB, but the second one is as it is unallocated 1782GB, neither it can be deleted nor the first partition gets extended to it. Its all options are greyed out shown in fig:disk_3.png as i try to extend partition 1 then there comes an error " this operation is not supported by the object". Unallocated one also not gets detected via diskpart, only first is showing. Hope I were able to define my problem in detail

In short, the second partition (unallocated 1782GB) is not accessible neither in disk management nor by diskpart.
plzzzz help me out

thanks in advance
