Accidentally deleted partition

Hey all. Here's the deal. Earlier today, I was fiddling around with a utility called Testdisk in Ubuntu (I have a Wubi install). I accidentally deleted my 2nd partition, which contains all of my digital media. Now, it appears as unallocated space in Disk Management. I think all my files are still intact, but I can't access it because I deleted the partition.

I'm currently doing an extensive scan using EASEUS Partition Recovery. But as of the moment, my deleted partition still hasn't shown up (I hope that it's not a bad sign of things to come). Anyway, I would love to hear some more input on what else I should do. Any other program I should use?

Cheers.

  1. Actually, TestDisk is a utility that is often recommended to restore lost/damaged partitions.

    Partition Find and Mount is another one:

    Could we see the partition table and boot sectors with Microsoft's Sector Inspector?

    Extract the above archive to the one folder and execute the SIrun.bat file. The procedure will generate a report file named SIout.txt which you can then upload to a file sharing service.
  2. Thanks! I wasn't able to restore my partition, but I was able to retrieve the files that I wanted. :D TestDisk is beyond awesome.

    Cheers
