Deleted partition, recovered files but drive is not shown

I deleted the partition and found a program to recover the files. I want to format it so I can use it but can't do so. Any help would be appreciated. I have recovery software that sees it but gives me no option to format the drive.

Do u have windows installed?
if u do, go to administrative tools, devise managment, select disk managment, your partition should be listed there, with the format option when u right click on it.
if u dont have windows, u need to get a live cd, you can use linux live cds (puppy for biginers), and use gparted to format the partiton, or if you are not familior with linux, you can use winpe mini cd, it haves hirens boot disk with many tools dedicated for partitioning. gd luck

I have accidentally formatted my partition drive f


Deleting or formatting won't make the data in computer hard drive erased permanently.

Those deleted data is still stored on the computer hard drive , it's just invisible or inaccessible. Only the FAT or NFTS table is erased (the information about where those data were saved), but the real data are still intact there in sectors of the hard drive.


So as long as those data are not overwritten by new data, it's highly possible to recover them. And the MOST Effective way is to rely on some format recovery programs.


Try asoftech data recovery program, which can recover data after deeply scanning your computer hard drive to look for lost data you accidentally deleted or formatted. download the software from link below

Then,howto retrieve deleted files?


Withinfour steps, you can get back your data:
1.Select deleted recovery. It will take you a few minutes to scan your storagedevice;
2. heck the deleted datayou want to recover;
3.Select a path folder for the recovered files;
4.Click "OK" to finish recovery.

Onemore tip:

If the hard drive can't be detected(means can't showup in 'My Computer' as a drive letter like C: drive),you can try this way.Putthe hard drive in a zip-lock bag and put it in the freezer for 2-3 hours. Thenwhile it's still cold plug it into the computer.If it fails, you will have to go to a recoveryoffice but let's hope not because it will cost you a lot of money and whetherthey can recover the data or not is not guarantee.

How can i recover my files when i accidentally formatted my drive d twice


The only chance you have is to find a free "undeleete" program and try to recover as much as possible.
Afterformatting a harddrive and later installationof Windows you cant expect to recover that much as - If the position where the file wasstored is owerwritten by windows files - recovery is not possible. If I were you - forget it - bu as mentioned there is a chance to recover some of the files. Search via google for Undeleete program (free) - or by a proper program.

How do I recover a deleted file from the Olympus WS-500M? I have not recorded over these files as of yet.


First of all, do not save any new file to camera's memory card.

Take out memory card, and connect it to computer using a card reader. You should see memory card shown as a drive letter (like H:) in Windows Explorer.

I accidentally deleted all the partition when i am formatting the system partition how can i reinstall the OS now where i don't have recovery media.Is there any way to recover the deleted partition?


You cannot recover a lost or deleted partition by simply creating it in Windows Disk Manager (this can only make things worse). To recover partitions you will need partition recovery software Today there are TONS of partition recovery software on the Internet. I am going to give a short review of such software.
Here are some main kinds of partition recovery software:
  • It can be paid or free
  • It can run under Windows or only under DOS (usually from a boot CD)
  • It can give you the possibility to copy files off the lost partition (preferred) or just patch your hard drive (pretty much dangerous).
  • Active Partition Recovery DOS/WindowsPrice: $36Easiness to use: Average
    Safety: Average
    Allows to recover partitions or files in Demo mode: No
    Link: http://www.partition-recovery.com/price.htm
  • or with this free software TestDiskPrice: FreeEasiness to use: Not easy
    Safety: Dangerous!
    Allows to recover partitions or files in Demo mode: Yes
    Link: http://www.cgsecurity.org/wiki/TestDisk_Download Click link to download..
  • but still you can reinstall os on your drive by creating partition..(if no need to recover files)
  • during setup press c key to create partition and put size to what ever you want for C depends on your hdd size.for example your hdd is 80gb,then put size 30000 for C ,then enter
  • the remaining size is for D:scroll down D and press c key to create partion for D:then enter
  • wait till the setup finish
