Do you mean, 'Is it possible these partitions can be lost?' ?

If it is, yes, it's possible IF your HD's sectors are broken and unable to fix.

Restore Original Factory Image (Recommended)

Restoring a hard disk drive to its factory default state deletes all partitions on the hard disk drive and all data stored on those partitions. All of your files and information will be lost! Be sure to back up all important files first.
  1. Press 1 to restore your hard disk drive to its original factory default state. A confirmation message will appear, indicating that all data will be overwritten and lost during the restore process. Be sure to back up all important files before proceeding.
  2. Click Yes to begin the recovery. A message will appear once the operation is finished, indicating the HDD has been restored.
  3. Press any key to restart the computer.

CAUTION:
Restoring the C: drive to its factory default state formats your drive. Your information on the drive will be overwritten, and lost. Be sure to back up all important files first. If you have created other partitions (for example, a D: drive) those partitions and any information on them will not be affected and will remain intact.

To restore only the C: drive:
  1. Press 2 to restore only the "C:" drive (the letter C is traditionally used to designate the first volume on the hard disk drive) on your computer. A confirmation message will appear, indicating that all information on the drive will be lost during the recovery process. Be sure to back up all important files before proceeding.
  2. Click Yes to begin the recovery. A message will appear once the operation is finished, indicating that the HDD has been restored.
  3. Press any key to restart the computer.

To resize and restore your C: drive:
  1. Press 3 at the Toshiba HDD Recovery Utility screen. A confirmation message will appear, indicating that all partitions will be reformatted and all information will be lost during the recovery process. Be sure to back up all important files before proceeding.

I am trying to partition and format 2 identcal Toshiba Laptop SATA HDD's. Using Windows Disk Management and Easeus softwares, both softwares are listing each harddrive capacity at 55gb. The actual capacity...


You would want to delete all partitions from the disk. That will get the raw space back. From there, partition; then, format. If you need more help, please ask, but from the experience level able; it sounds like you are right on track.

PURCHASED A NEW HARD DRIVE MDL: WD1600AAJB-00J3A0 NO INSTALLATION SUCH AS CONFIGURING, PARTITIONING AND FORMATTING AND NO REFERENCE TO BIOS.


The bIOS should automatically pick up the HDD, Formatting is done via your OS, Configuring only applies to PATA drives nnot SATA ones and partitiong is done with a third party sofware such as partition magic.

Jumper settings for PATA drives are printed on the HDD label.

SATA HDD problems


Is this a 2nd hdd added into the system or a new primary replacing a hdd that you removed? If it is an additional hdd you will have to enable it in system bios & then format & partition it before you will be able to use it. Hope this helps.

Application error when running recovery disk


hi

Did you create any partitions on the HDD?
Obviously the HDD or some partitions on the HDD are corrupt.
In my opinion, you should firstly try to format the whole HDD and delete also whole partitions.
Then insert the recovery CD and try to install the Toshiba image

Some of the following answer assumes a windows operating or possibly DOS based operating system. If your original OS was not Windows or DOS -- there may be different considerations.

1) Did you lose the contents of both partitions?
That depends were they soft or hard partitions.
Soft partitions are created as files inside of other partitions
If that is what you had allocated in the formatted partition
you have lost their data content.
Hard or physical partitions allocated using FDISK and some other utilities the second partition would still exist.

2) Where are/were your system files. Often but not always they appear as the first partition of the master drive on the primary IDE controller all assuming a PC (based on the master slave comments you have indicated.) (sometimes the second when diagnostics are loaded on the first partition)

a) if the partition on the drive you formated contained the system files yes they must be installed to access anything on the disk for the most part. A significant exception may be utilization of a DOS boot diskette might permit DOS access to the other partitions if they are formatted with the FAT file system.

NTFS partitions and possibly FAT32 partitions may not be accessible to all versions of DOS -- there may be some bootable CD's that would allow access to NTFS partitions without installing an operating system.

Question back from the DOS and older version of windows days and even some more modern operating systens in subsequent actions with the disk did you use FDISK or another utility to rewrite the boot blocks to point to a different partition?

Question this was not a dual boot machine was it?-- if so disregard anything that follows.

Question did the machine boot after formatting the partition and before you started moving the drives around? If so the operating system is probably on a drive you have removed from the machine. It needs to be replaced onto the same cable position it was originally located upon -- probably on the Primary IDE cable master position or jumper setting.

If not reinstallation of the operating to the formatted partition is probably the correct next step. Be careful in doing this because if you choose one of the other partitions that were not formatted it could wipe out the data in them based on the installation process chosen.
