    Question How to reclaim the deleted partition in Windows7 ??????

    Hello members, how are you all? I have Win7 installed as my OS. In my desktop I have 2 different physical hard-drives. First one is 40 GB which is whole C-Drive without any partitions. Now the other hard-drive is having capacity of 500 GB, which I had divided into 4 partitions namely D, E, F (each 100 GBs) and the last one is G-Drive with 200 GBs capacity.
    Now, 2 days back I had used Win7’s inbuilt Disk Management tool and had shrunk my D-Drive by 15 GBs. Hence, I had got a new partition with 15 GBs capacity which I named as Z-Drive (just to recognise it very easily). Today my work was over and I had no need for that Z-Drive anymore so I just explored ‘My Comuter’ and formatted Z-Drive using right-click context menu. After formatting Z-Drive I started Disk Management tool. I just right-clicked Z drive and clicked ‘delete volume’ so that I may get that much space as ‘Unallocated’ and then I would again extend the D-Drive (or so I thought). But when I deleted my Z-Drive, don’t know how but G-Drive also got deleted along with it and now both Z and G drives are shown by green color in Disk Management tool and they are showing their capacity (15 GBs and 200 GBs respectively) as free space!!!!!!
    I have a lot of crucial and important data and files on G-Drive. How this G-Drive got deleted automatically along with Z-Drive?? And I haven’t formatted G-Drive, are my files and data still present on G-Drive??? After all this I right clicked 200 GBs partition (G-Drive) and selected ‘New Simple Volume’ and followed the steps accordingly (I had checked ‘Do not format partition’ while creating ‘New Simple Volume on that green colored 200 GBs space ) but this tool waits for 3-4 minutes and gives error message as “The operation failed to complete because the Disk Management console is not up-to-date. Refresh the view by using the refresh task. If the problem persists close the Disk Management console, then restart Disk Management or restart the computer”.
    I had refreshed and restarted the computer several times after that and tried to create that ‘New Simple Volume’ but every time the same error-message pops up. First of all please tell me is my data still safe on that 200GBs space (as I had checked ‘Do not format partition’ while creating ‘New Simple Volume’)????? And then please suggest me how I can convert that 200 GBs space into G-Drive?????
    I am very much tensed as I have a hell lot of important data and files on G-Drive!!!!!! Please help me members if there’s any solution to this……….

    if the data were REALLY useful, u wouldnt have messed with MBR so much

    now stop messing up more by force create partition & google for data recovery apps, starting with "FreeUndelete"

    If your data is very important and you dont mind spending some money then send your hard drives to some data recovery company. There are a few in Mumbai and there is one in London who would even recover data from broken hard drives but they charge a hell lot more then Indian companies.
    Keep your important data backed up at different physical locations in future.
