Paragon partition manager

I defragmented with paragon partition manager and it took too long. I interrupted it and now one of the drives says it is unformatted. I had lots of data on that drive. Is there any way to recover the data?

How can I rename hard drive partitions after having lost them by enlargening a partition?

I'm assuming you are on windows. Right click on My Computer and select Manage. Select the Disk Management option on the left. Right click on the partitions you are missing a drive letter for and then select Change Drive Letter and Paths. That should let you choose the drive letter.

Click Start
Click with the SECOND (usually the RIGHT) mouse button on My Computer.
Click Manage.
Click Storage

The "Disk Administrator" will start, and your disk-drive may show up as being "unformatted".
Use this utility to create a partition, and to format the partition.
Then, the "empty" partition will show-up in My Computer.

Cannot access hard drive, USB port detects it, but does not access

You can verify what drive has been detected by your Operating System, which I assume is Windows of some sort by going to: Control Panel -> Admistrative Tools -> Computer Management -> Disk Management -> Your Hard disk will be displayed with all existing partitions.
I order to use any partitions in your new drive, you will need to assign a drive letter to each new partition.
If you have a brand new drive that is completely unformatted, then you will need, also via the context menu, Create partitions, Format partitions and assign a drive letter so that you can use the formatted partitions.

Hope it helps: let me know how you go!

Computor does not recognise my book as connected have tried 2 different computors and a new computor to my book cable

I have used this software and it worked. Paragon Partioning Magic Apparently the space on the WD was unformatted and unallocated, so it wasn't visible. After partitioning it, formatting it and allocating a drive letter, it workds like a charm.

Flaeh drive problem

is it formatted / partitioned if it is new you will need to partition it and format it, If you are running win 98 you may have to download drivers to use it. on XP right click My computer, Choose manage and go to disk management, you should be able to see the flash drive there, if it is unpartitioned or unformatted, you should then be able to partition it and format it if you are using this flash disk on several systems it may be best to format as FAT 32 as it is more portable
