No partition after scan

#1 Post by bealefay »

Hi there !
I have a hard drive with 2 partitions. Behind it was still unpartitioned space. So I partitioned it and quickly formatted it. And the two partition was gone. The first partition is now displayed and the new 2nd which now takes up all of the space (i.e. the complete memory that was still free, including the previous 2nd partition)
The questions are:
Do I just have to select the partition or the whole hard drive for analysis?
When I start Tesdisk and run an analysis, nothing is displayed, not even after the deep search.
No partition found or selected for recovery
But it is shown to me e.g. with the option Advanced that partitions are there.

OS / 2 boot manager
sys = 6d
sys = 66

how do I have to proceed?

Assuming you are under Windows, you need to select the PhysicalDrive corresponding to the disk you want to analyze.
