Here is my case: I have a MacBook Pro running Windows 7 (64bits) on Boot Camp.
When I installed Windows I gave 40GB for its partition. Soon I found it was too small. So that I reduced the size of the MacOS partition through "Disk Utility" and then rebooted in Windows and extended the Windows partition through a third party software.
When I rebooted into MacOS I realised that MacOS didn't register the modification of the Windows Partition. It still showed the MacOS Partition, a free unpartitioned space and the original 40GB Windows Partition.
Anyway I could select which partition to boot to by pressing the "Alt" key while starting the MacBook.
Until I upgraded to Mavericks. Now the Extended Windows Partition disappeared.
I have downloaded TestDisk and these are the screen shots I get:
This is my current Partition Structure:
The partition 4 showed there is the ale 40GB Partition which I want to delete (because it was supposed to be expanded to 100GB)
I have found the partition I need to revive (the one select):
Now I am not sure what to do. Can I modify this in the same computer I am working on? or should I remove the disk and do it externally?
Now what shout I do?... mark all the partitions I want to keep with a "P"?
I would like to exchange current Partition 4 with the found partition.
Please let me know how to proceed.
