It shows up in Minitool as 746 Gb, but in Disk Managment it is showing up as the entire 2794.39 GB (RAW) (Healthy Primary Partition.

This happened to me last year with another 3 TB disk under almost the same circumstances and I was able to fix it without any data loss or recovery tools, but for the life of me I cannot remember how I did it.

Below is a screenshot of the results of a Partition Recovery Scan in Minitool. If you would like a screenshot of just the disk behind the scan, please let me know, and I really hope someone can help me. Thanks.


I mean I was able to fix it with Minitool without data loss, sorry. Just want to be clear.

I should also reveal that the drive letter (J:) is still visible, as well.

The image did not come through. In Minitools is the disk labeled as MBR or GPT?
