Rescue NTFS Partition

Post by andwan0 » 16 May 2009, 21:52

I was just installing Windows 7 RC natively on my laptop. It asked me where to install. I thought I could just pick my partition 1 and press delete and it will leave partition 2 & 3 intact.

However, after deleting partition 1, my partition 2 disappeared.. but partition 3 is still there.

What happened? I tried going back and then forward (pages) to see if it hasn't written the changes, but it has!

Help, how do I rescue my partition 2 (which contains all my work).

You should try testdisk-6.11 which is part of SystemRescueCd-1.2.0, it can recover deleted partitions.
