Partition of 1831.01 gigas unallocated

Hello everyone,

I used the "create windows 10 recovery drive", on a 2 TB sata external drive.

I mistakenly thought that Windows would ask me where I wanted to copy the system and it erased everything.

I had 3 partitions A, B, & C which contained Windows 10.

TestDisk took several days to scan the 2 TB disk.

I attach the log for anyone who can tell me what I have to do since I think there are more than 3 partitions.

According to "Windows Computer Management, I would like to recover the partition of 1831.01 gigas unallocated

Thank you in advance



Bonjour à tous,

J'ai utilisé "créer le lecteur de récupération de windows 10", sur un disque externe sata de 2 TB.

J'ai pensé à tort que Windows allait me demander où je voulais copier le système et il a effacé tout.

J'avais 3 partitions A, B, & C où contenait Windows 10.

TestDisk a prit plusieurs jours pour scanner le disque de 2 Tb.

J'attache le log pour quiconque saurait me dire ce que je dois faire vu que je trouve qu'il y a plus de 3 partitions.

Selon "Gestion de l'ordinateur de Windows, je voudrais récupérer la partition de 1831.01 gigas non alloué

Merci d'avance

You need to copy/paste the testdisk.log file content. You can't attach it to a post.
Try to list the files of each partition found by TestDisk.
If you see your files, set the partition to recover to P(rimary). On next screen, choose Write, confirm, Quit and restart your computer.
If your files aren't listed, run PhotoRec, enable the expert mode in Options, scan the whole disk, choose a blocksize of 512, use the default options otherwise.
