Hello there,

Recently my younger brother some how recover/ do a clean install of Windows on my desktop, Although he claimed that only the SSD which content the Windows file is wiped out, but there is still one missing partition which is not show up in My Computer. 

Originally it should be like this 

Intel 75gb SSD  
- C drive (Windows)
- D Drive - System Reserved

WD - 500hb HDD -
- E Drive - Programs 
- F Drive - Multimedia 

- G Drive (Empty)

Now,other than the change in alphabet for each partition, i loss one partition which should be the "E drive - Programs" Check the screen shoot below

As you can see, my Disk2 having a partition of  "Multimedia E - 465.76GB"  but as shown on top, the partition has only 232.88GB of capacity.  The screenshot below is taken from the EASE US DATA Recovery 



My questions is, is there any possible for me to recover the missing partition and its data?  

Best wishes

Hello and welcome,

I noticed that the Easeus scan shows 2 E: partitions. Select on of them and do a scan. If you do not see your programs, select the other. One of these may be your programs partition.
