  I installed a new SSD drive with new windows OS on it and some how I lost all my data on an 2 tb storage drive. I kept the other ssd drive with old OS and files so I would have that info if I need. I'm not sure how everything was miss on another drive. I have included a Belarc scan of computer Any help would be much appreciated.

Maybe not lost but may be a Partition fault.

 

What operating system did you install on the SSD and was the 2TB connected at the same time { Win 10 can do that }.

You may be able to try some recovery programs on the 2 TB like Recuva or others may suggest something else.

 

Im not familiar with recovering partitions or repairing them as my backups are all offline and i simply just reload an Image.

 

In the meantime until anyone responds with methods , dont use the 2TB to make things worse until directed.

I'm using window 7 64. I di the partition tool and the strange this is that its only showing that its 465 GB. the only other thing on there is a system reserved with a 100MB partition so some how there is 1435 GB of disk not there the rest is empty.

Please Publish a Snapshot using Speccy taking care to post the link of the snapshot in your next post.

   Go to Piriform's website, and download the free version on the left.  Click Download from Piriform.com (the FileHippo link requires an extra click). Or if you want to use a portable version of Speccy (which doesn't require installation), click the builds page link and download the portable version. You will now be asked where you want to save the file. The best place to put it is the Desktop, as it will be easy to find later.

    After the file finishes downloading, you are ready to run Speccy. If you downloaded the installer, simply double-click on it and follow the prompts until installation is complete. If you downloaded the portable version, you will need to unzip it before use. Right-click the ZIP file and click Extract all. Click Next. Open up the extracted folder and double-click on Speccy.
 
     Once inside Speccy, it will look similar to this (with your computer's specifications, of course):

     Now, at the top, click File > Publish Snapshot.

     Click Yes > then Copy to Clipboard

Now, once you are back in the forum topic you are posting in, click the ADD REPLY or REPLY TO THIS TOPIC button. Right-click in the empty space of the Reply box and click Paste. Then, click Add Reply below the Reply box.

And, make sure that 2TB HDD is disconnected during all of that downloading, installing and running.

Windows writes and writes and writes...if 2TB HDD data recovery is what you want, then one has to take 2TB HDD data recovery steps.  I recommend doing everything Hamluis suggests, just with that 2TB HDD disconnected for now
