Manage partitions I partitioned my C: drive successfully to provide a partition for data. Unfortunately the partition does not show up in COMPUTER. It clearly exists in the MANAGE DISCs utility. Even opening the new partition shows the contents here. In addition when I connect two USB flash drives the second one does not show up in COMPUTER. Is ther a solution or cause?

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.

Lost NTFS partition on my WD1600BEVT, how do you restore so I can use again?


Depends on what you did to "lose" the partition-table.

Download the free 'PTEDIT.ZIP' file -- it is a "partition-table editor".
UNZIP it on a different computer, and extract the 'PTEDIT.EXE' program.
Run PTEDIT on your computer, and update the partition-table.

You can recover formatted partition with partition recovery program.I have succeed with Tenorshare data recovery.It can recover partition after deeply scanning your hard drive to look for lost data you accidentally formatted.You can get it here:http://www.any-data-recovery.com
If you want to recover the file system of partition,you can copy your data into a portable device and then transfer the file system of partition.

I have my drive split into 2 partitions but only 1 shows up now, how can i get it back to 2 partitions?


With the drive connected to your computer and powered on, go to the Start Menu and you will see where it says "Computer" or "My Computer" (depending on operating system). Right click on "Computer" or "My Computer" and a menu will appear.

On that menu click on "Manage" and it will open up the Computer Management window.

In the Computer Management window you will see "Disk Management" on the left towards the bottom. Click on that.

In the Disk Management window you will see a list of all of your drives and partitions. Find the hard drive that has the missing partition and see if the missing partition shows up in there. Make sure it shows that the partition is formatted as a filesystem that Windows will recognize such as NTFS and also make sure that it is assigned a drive letter.

If the partition is formatted and does not have a drive letter assigned, Right-Click on the partition and a menu will appear. On that menu, click on "Change Drive Letter and Paths". That will open a dialog box that will take you through the steps of assigning a drive letter to that partition. Once you finish, it should show up in "Computer" or "My Computer" as a drive.

If the partition is not formatted to NTFS or the filesystem you would like it to be (NTFS is recommended for Windows), just Right-Click on the partition and the menu will appear. On that menu click on "Format" and go through the process of formatting the partition to NTFS or your preferred filesystem and it should format the partition and assign a drive letter to the partition and should now show up on your computer.

WARNING: If you format the partition, you will lose any data on that partition and you may not be able to recover the lost data.

I hope this helps! If it does, please leave me a good rating and feedback. I would greatly appreciate it!

Best Regards,

James

Is it possible to keep the operating system on drive c and the data on drive d and how to do this


yes, partition the drive...
If installing a new OS, Partition drive one with 1/4 of the drives size, then install the os to that partition, once installed if using Windows, partition 1 should show as C: drive, and partition 2 should show as an additional drive.. Each Partition will show as a separate drive..

If the OS is already installed, you can use a program such as partition magic, or you can use MS disc manage (right click My Computer, Select Manage)..

Partition problem


In my humble opinion, the best option is to install a second (blank or larger) drive. Install some recovery software such as "easy recovery pro" or something that will be able to read files from a filesystem that has had the partition table written over. Start with trying to scan using FAT32, and in failing that, try NTFS. Restore the data to the second drive, format the first and partition as required. Copy the data back to the first drive to the partitions that you specified, and erase the data from the second drive. A free option may be pandora recovery, available at http://www.pandorarecovery.com/features/

Partition parameter


From the data you provided, the D drive is deleted and is newly created. But it is not yet formatted. So the data is virtually deleted. Why I said virtually is because, the data is still there on the drive physically and you can recover it using third party tools like OO disk recovery tool. That is why partition magic is still showing data on it.
And it is also obvious that the task which Partition Magic started (splitting drives) is not finished properly. That is why K partition is incorrectly formatted. It is natural that it asks format of D drive because D drive belongs to no file type and it must be of FAT32 or NTFS or other file system.
The solution for your problem is try recovering your data on D drive using disk recovery tools. Then format it using FAT32 or NTFS. Format K drive also in FAT32 or NTFS. Use either partition magic or Computer Management. Since already PM caused problems on your computer, try computer management. It is safe.
