Recovered Partition seen as raw

#1 Post by aharvey » 15 Sep 2015, 08:52

Hi,
I made my NTFS data partition (with photos etc) unallocated when switching from GPT to MBR (in order to repair windows).

I have restored the partition using testdisk. However it is the wrong size (~400 vs ~700Gb) and windows does not see it as valid. In Easeus partition tool it is seen as the correct size. Also the drive was not bootable after restoring.

I am rerunning a search with testdisk.

I think I was too hasty in writing MBR with testdisk. I am writing to ask what I should do differently to correctly restore second time around!

A second deeper search helped me find the correct partitions and resolve the problem. Thanks.
