 after reverting ubuntu installation on my win 7 Pc, I had partition C :73 Gb,  E: 88 Gb,  H: 88 Gb, unallocated space 47 Gb and 9gb, this 47 Gb space was in E & F earlier.
 
i tried to revert changes as ubuntu was not booting frm hdd, becouse of less space. I made backup of C drive and extended c drive by acronis software to use unallocated space of 47 GB (rebooting askd by software) after operation error came during boot regarding appending.
after this operation, my c drive was unaffected but new drive name D was created 136 Gb, my H drive is renamed to E.
d require format to use,  its having my data. Tried restore but no use.
help please.

Your Raw Partition is showing EXT4 which is a linux file system. Windows will not see that. You can download a linux distro like Puppy linux. Burn the iso and boot to the Puppy desktop. Your partitions are shown in the lower left and labeled sda1...sda1... Click once on the partition. It will automatically mount and open a File Manager. 

 

Copying files are a little different in Puppy. Click once on the partition that you want to copy to. A file manager will open. Highlight the files/folders in the EXT4 partition. You can highlight by holding the Ctrl key and left clicking or by windowing around the files/folders. Left click and drag the highlighted folders from the EXT4 file manager window to the partition file manger you are copying to. A small dialog window will open. Select Copy and check the Quite box. 

 

Puppy Linux  tahr-6.0.2_PAE.iso

 

You can burn an iso in Windows 7 by right clicking the Puppy iso and selecting Burn Disk Image.

i have Ubuntu 14.04.3  bootable iso, from which i opened my drives but drive in question is unable to mount there, some thing like this displayed: Error. Mounting /dev/sda5 at/media/ubuntu

 
exited with nonzero exit status 32:mount:missing code page or helper program,
ubuntu is linux too.....
suggest pl.
of 136 gb around 45 gb is unallocated space this space was used by ubuntu before i formatted  or delete it and merged it to C by extending it but result was my E (now D) having 88 GB capacity and around 40 GB data, also merged with it.
 
i.e                     E = 88 gb NTFS (40gb used data)
unalocated or linux 45 gb Ext4
RAW D               = 136 gb (RAW or ext4)

Just to clarify your data that was on E: NTFS is now D: EXT4?

 

Run R-studio for Windows for Linux.

 

http://www.r-tt.com/free_linux_recovery/

 

If that does not see your files try Minitools Data Recovery or Easeus Data Recovery. Minitools will let you recover 1GB for free to see if the files are recoverable. Easeus will let you recover up to 2GB at most.

 

One software that is more powerful but expensive is Diskinternals Partition Recovery.

situation is: originally

HDD =320 GB

C= 80  GB

E= 120 GB

H= 120 GB

1) installed UBUNTU: GRUB doesn't opened on boot to select OS, only windows booting so,

opened ubuntu instalation and clicked on REVERT result,

C= around 80 gb

E= 88 gb

H= 88 gb

unallocated space = 47 gb around

 

Now tried to extend C result

C= 80 gb aprox (opening)

D(E)= 136 gb RAW (Not opening)

E(H)= 88 gb(opening)

 

possible solution : 1) get data from D, around 40 GB and format D 

2) copy data from E (H) and format it too

3) Rearrange partitions to extend C

4) Load Linux OS

 

Target Result

C= 120 GB

D= 100 gb

E=  100 gb

Win 7 unaffected

Linux loaded

grub coming to select OS 

 

me :)

I don't think you needed to REVERT. Boot Repair may have worked to repair Grub or using the install disk to update Grub. But, that would be a question for the linux forum.  I am hoping the software I linked to will help. If not you can run TestDisk for Windows and see if it finds any lost partitions but changing from NTFS to EXT4 is the problem.

It looks like you have overlapping partitions. I would download Testdisk for Windows here. Unzip to the desktop. Scan the disk. Do a Quick Search on the disk. It will list partitions it finds. Highlight the partititon that is RAW. Press the "P" key. Does it list your files?

 

If TestDisk does not detect the partition then do a Deeper Search.

 

http://www.cgsecurity.org/wiki/TestDisk_Step_By_Step

 

Edit: If you see your files listed, you can highlight each file/directory with the ":" key. Then press upper case "C". This will copy the files to the directory you unzipped Testdisk to or you can use the arrow keys to select the copy location. See if you can copy a few files first.

Instead of trying to recover a partition I would scan the drive with the software I linked to. Edit:Did you try the Deeper Search? If that does not work and the software I linked to in post#5 does not find anything then I think you may need a professional data recovery service.

Minitools Partition Wizard can help you rearrange your partitions. Are you planning on installing linux again. If you are simply leave the space on the disk reserved for linux as unallocated.

 

From your previous post:

 

Target Result

C= 120 GB

D= 100 gb

E=  100 gb  

Win 7 unaffected

 

Start Partition Wizard and post a screenshot. This will help me see how you should go about doing the partition moves or you can see Partition Wizards website to see how operations are done. All steps are virtual so nothing is done until apply is pressed. This will let you back out of the steps if you made a mistake. Even though I never had a problem with Minitools Partition Wizard you should always back up your important data before doing any partition management.

 

Before you install linux I recommend you see this tutorial on installing Ubuntu on a WIndows 7 computer. Even if you do not install Ubuntu it will help.

 

Edit: And I am glad you were able to retrieve your data. I would install Ubuntu, not Kali. Kali is for penetration testing. You may also want to look at linux Mint.

1. resize command: is showing 0 space before and after.

2. extend command: it can be done but is it safe? i encountered whole problem due to extend command on acronis scared to repeat the same for C drive.
