Hi

Im hoping someone will be able to help me.

I have a 2TB hard drive which i have partitioned into 3 partitions, (249GB for C:, 1000GB for D: data, 613GB for E: data)
Now the 1000GB partition which is filled with data has dissappeared from My computer. It happened after installing a dual boot with linux and using the 613GB as unallocated space for the linux partitions, (I have since removed the linux and partitions on the E: 613GB and created a ntfs primary partition again)

I have uploaded a screenshot that you can see that partition is not in my computer and in Disk management it only shows by "Disk 0" and not under volumes.

I have tried using 'Diskpart' To assign a drive letter but under 'list volume' nothing appears.

I have also done a a partition details which shows no volume, Dont know if im able to merge the partition in anyway or ifts the partition table that needs to be fixed

any help or even suggestions would be greatly appreciated as i do not want to lose the data and can see that the partition is still there in a sense.
Thanks

I have also installed winhex and can see the partition and files, but want to know how i can get the partition working with the volume before trying to recover the files to another drive. The partition has not been formatted so all the files are still there, the partition is just not attached to a volume

The first thing I would try is using Partition Wizard FREE boot disk. Download the .iso and burn to CD. Then run the Partition Recovery Wizard.
Get it here
Hopefully it will be an easy fix!
