Hi all ! I have just face a problem that I wanted to install Linux on my system, and I emptied one drive completely and deleted it using Computer Management Console. But deleting this partition caused unstable hard disk. Like one more partition got deleted on its own. The partition I deleted was PRIMARY partition and the other partition I have lost is extended partition. Now I am having free space 30 GB unallocated, 523GB free space,672GB unknown healthy partition.Originally I have 160GB(Seagate) + 40GB(Samsung) hard disk space.

Screenshot is attached:



Can somebody recognize the problem and suggest me how to recover the lost partition ?

Thanks in advance.

Use Active@partition recovery. It recovers NTFS and FAT partitions. I used that and got my logical drives back. U can easily get a cracked version of this soft. If not send a PM. I'll help

Bro ! I have now re-partitioned the hard-disk using Windows XP setup. Can I still recover the data from lost partitions ?

If you have not overwritten any data then you can recover the data from the lost partition...There are various tools available for such kind of data recoveries. One such tool that I use is Undo Delete.UD can recover the data lost in many cases such as after Shift Delete, HD Crash and even in the case of HD Format.....So u can use this to recover the lost data...
So b4 installing the linux recover ur data first.
