Partition deleted, hard drive is no longer recognized

Question: Partition deleted, hard drive is no longer recognized

I've been informed so far that it should be possible to restore the partition via programs such as testdisk. What can I do, the data in Testdisk not even recognized and offered me not to choose from. I also downloaded the program, but the infected external hard drive are extremely important for me!?!

Also in the volume management, only the internal disks are displayed, the external one is missing.

I have a DOS tool from a bootable CD Is there any way to save my windows without having to get memory on the other disk Oo

Thanks for being made. I did not worry about the weird partition.

Be automatically reserved 100mb on the hard drive where the BS comes on it, because the BS needs this memory for certain functions. Now I wonder how you have to completely reinstall the reserved it with all programs, etc ?? It has not been released anywhere else, and I have no idea where it comes from and why Windows considers it necessary to load 2 disks. your help in advance.

It is important to note that I also deleted the partition. If so with what freeware as I said not. I have as I said no formatting important data on it! I have a new partition in the windows already the hard disk but NOT formatted.

I wanted to boot on my machine to install win 7.

And I wanted to install the XP emulation mode 7: Unfortunately, a very important program only runs on older 32 bit operating systems. The installation CD was in the drive and the recover partition was deleted. The selected data carrier merge the partitions and finally create new partitions. Perhaps it would have been smarter to use win 7 as the second operating system (message: "The program cannot restore the system partition because its structure is faulty.").

Many thanks for your help

Repair The SSD is not stored in the OS and switch it on again, it brings this error message again. I have to do this: "Hard disk without power and in that, or then I save the settings without or do I have to change?

I can not explain how this could happen because I switched from Windows 8.1 to Windows 10. How can I get this and a (normal AES) encrypted Truecrypt partition. Hard drive is built in and using your key (which was securely garbated during encryption) in Windows. My hard drive was not connected to the Windows 10 installation.


Why was she best to restore? In Windows disk management, the encrypted parition becomes important. I am only encrypted, were recognized without problems. I have not tried ala testdisk, since not connected to the windows install?

If yes, then file still exists.


I assembled a new PC and no longer recognized it. The hard disk had two partitions, one of which was not encrypted and the hard disk was displayed as "Dynamic Foreign". It does not do that automatically, since you do not have your error when installing Windows10.

More hard drives, even Truecrypt was there (mMn)

Were because the other hard drives that are encrypted, connected to the install? It looks like you'll have to use Truecrypt to access the hard drive 2. A header backup as a separate I do not want to make matters worse.
