A few months back one of my friends had created a Ghost image of "C:" Drive and yesterday when he was reinstalling Windows XP using the Ghost CD which he has created, after Ghost installation, he saw that the "D:" drive partition got lost and seemed to merge with "C:" drive. He asked me for help that how to recover the deleted partition and get the data back from "D:" hard disk drive?
The situation with a "lost" partition typically arises when Windows OS has been reinstalled or when a slave external hard drive is moved to another computer. The following guide is written for Windows users on how to restore lost partition and restore data in it.
To recover a deleted partition, first, you need to know that whether a partition can be recognized by the system or not depends on the partition table and boot sector. If the lost partition shows up in Device Manager and Disk management, but NOT in "My Computer," chances are that it is "only" the partition table/boot sector that is missing or corrupt.
