Windows 7: 2tb internal drive unallocated

I have only ever used on partitions\unallocated space, perhaps 100gb in size.

I don't know how long it will take for 2tb. What have you got to lose by trying it?

7hrs sounds reasonable.

If you want to do it in stages, you will need to get a license for personal version.

Once I pull the necessary data off this drive, does it then become a paper weight or is there some way to salvage the it for use?

After recovering your data you can try and partition it, and see how it goes.

7 hours 30 minute for this that to run and it seems to have found most of, if not all off the files. However, I am back to the same problem. This program does not keep file names and or folders intact.

Is there a solution to keep the files intact by name and folder?

Aomatsu accidenatally/unintentionally deleted the partition and initialised it as a GPT drive. Drive unallocated much like yours. We tried the conventional methods PW and TestDisk but no joy. (Your case is a second successive failure for me ) Final recommendation: Getdataback Simple - made very reluctantly with really no hopes.. And it did rescue all the files with complete structure intact. ( reason why I put it first here in this thread )

His post #28 here just a week ago External HD - Partition Unallocated

"Getbackdata is a gem! I recovered all my data back with its data structures intact!

Thank you so much for the guidance! "

I have stopped asking the OPs whether they really bought it. Many seem to have "managed" to get it .

This was totally not your fail. That I am certain of. As of yet, I have not been able to "manage"

Looking for alternatives. If I find one, I will let you know. If you have any ideas, I am open. Thanks Jumanji.

If getdataback shows all your files correctly, then it will probably recover them if you have a license..



Looks like an easeus data recovery giveaway here;
edit : nevermind seems that has expired.

Easus does not seem to keep the file names nor folders. May be stuck 80 bucks for GDB
