Will Win7 start up now? If not, boot the Partition Wizard CD to confirm Win7 100mb SysReserved partition is still marked Active, if not rightclick>Modify>Set to Active, OK.

Then from Disk tab click Rebuild MBR, OK, Apply. Report back.

If it will boot, what are the results from running PW Partition Recovery Wizard?

Exactly what operation were you running when it rebooted, and what has changed now?

Windows 7 was started up before 30 hour?

See the current recovery partition status.

I do not understand "Windows 7 was started up before 30 hour?"

I asked if Win7 will start up. But it looks like you are working from Win7, even though the PW Home Edition drive map shows the entire HD is Unallocated space.

What partitions were missing when Win7 restarted?

it was an half hour not 30 hour.

Yes Windows 7 start up. Yes i am working from Windows 7 because it is almost 3:00 A.M in my country,Shops have been closed.

PW Home Edition drive map shows the entire HD is Unallocated space. :> Yes this is also right

What partitions were missing when Windows 7 restarted? :> partition E: was missing


Should i use MiniTool Power Data Recovery Free Edition tool for data recovery now?

See if the Partition Recovery Wizard can restore the missing partition.

Select it from the drives found, then try to recover it.

Please post another screenshot of Disk Management, but this time maximize the window so all of the listings and sizes are shown.

Doubleclick on the partitions it found to see which have the data you need recovered, then check the box for those partitions.

Judging by the sizes it appears that you need everything except the first, second and last choices found, but confirm that by double clicking and seeing what's in each one.

Thanks greg. my problems have been resolved. you supported me alot and very nicely.
I learnt alot of things from you.

but i didnt understand the lines below:
Your Line 1:
boot the Partition Wizard CD to confirm Windows 7 100mb SysReserved partition is still marked Active, if not rightclick>Modify>Set to Active, OK.

my Question:
SysReserved partition was active that time. How could i get my partitions from it?

Your Line 2:
Then from Disk tab click Rebuild MBR, OK, Apply. Report back.

my Question:

What would MBR do?

Request:
Please must comment on me where you can comment either on this post or message on this forum or through email (maifs@live.com). Please dont hesitate, i want to get comments/ opinioun about me.
