Harddisk recovery please help me fix

Asked By 240 points N/A Posted on -

I have a 160 GB western digital hard drive. Recently the power went down and flickered while my computer was on. That caused my hard disk to get corrupted since now it shows only 33 GB of space and the rest is un-partitioned space. I tried removing the hard drive and reinstalling it after sometime but that didn’t help at all.

I tried using some recovery software on it to get back my sensitive data but they cant access the un-partitioned space.

Any ideas on how I can recover my stuff back?

I really need it since I don’t have any back up of that data.

Good day, Make sure you have a secondary Hard Drive .

This link will give you idea how to add another drive

Let's get started, you can use the tool called Easeus Data Recovery Software, download it here.
Download the software and install it. Here's my step by step instruction:

1. After installing the software, launch the program. There are three choices, choose partition recovery and click next.

2. Select the disk you want to recover that case is (your 160 GB WD) and click next.

3. Wait for the Operation Searching (scanning the files which needs to be recovered later on from the source Hard drive your 160 GB WD). This operation takes an hour or more depending on the sizes of the files.

4. After done scanning, choose the very first partition one and click next.

5. There you can find raw files and NTFS 1, select the NTFS 1 then click next.

6. Select a path where to save the restored files, in my case E:Restored files (from my secondary Hard drive). Done restoring. You can now reformat your drive.

This link will help you .

Regards,

Neil
