Restored partition but i still don't see it among drives?

#1 Post by ThatEagle » 25 Jan 2018, 00:08

Is there an additional step to give a drive letter or something?

Background:

- Lost partition to a "diskpart clean"
- Testdisk found the 3 lost partitions on the 1tb drive, i restored the biggest one
- after restarting, i still don't see the restored drive... what am i missing?

Thanks

What is showing Windows Disk Manager ?
Can you share the testdisk.log file ?

In disk manager it shows as "unallocated". (Disk 2, 931gb unallocated space.)

Here's the copy paste of the complete log :

For info, the two disks that were erased were disk 0 (256gb SSD that i got nothing found from running testdisk on it, i guess it's lost) and a regular 1TB hard drive that's disk 2. It had 3 partitions, the main one and 2 tiny others created by the system.

It's better to set the second partition as *(bootable)

Code: Select all

An antivirus may block testdisk from restoring the partition table, you may have to disable it and/or start windows in safe mode.

I set it up as bootable and disabled my antivirus before running it and during. I have bitdefender antivirus and windows 10.

No change, i don't see the drive when i navigate to my PC, only my other 3 drives are present... what can i try? Do I need to assign a letter to the drive somehow?

I found this video where the guy assigns a letter after restoring, but i don't have that option in disk manager on windows 10... the guy in video has windows 8.1

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O_kvJF87Drc

Any alternatives of how to do that last step?

Thanks!
