I got a new hard drive, and I did a clean installation of windows on my new hard drive.
My old hard drive was partitioned in two. I backed up everything I wanted on my D partition, and I used a linux bootcd to reformat the C partition. Now, I booted into my new hard drive with a clean installation of windows, and I tried to access the old hard drive partitions. At first it worked (I could see the empty C partition and the full D partition), and I wanted to reformat the C (now it's the G partition) from within windows because linux only did a quick format. It froze halfway through, and now it doesn't recognize the drive, and when I go to computer management -> disk management it says it's unallocated and I need to initialize it using either MBR or GPT.
From what I understand, initializing it will erase everything. The D partition has ALL MY STUFF!
Are there any recovery tools? What can I do?
if I lost everything on my D hard drive I'm going to cry
