I think I deleted an important partition?

So while messing around with some re installations and stuff, I think I deleted one of those small 100mb partitions that show up. Unfortunately I think it belonged to my Movie HDD which had 2tb of movies on it. So now it just shows up as an empty drive.

I haven't done anything to the main part of the partition, is there any way I can restore that partition and access the data again??

help would be GREATLY appreciated

As you can see there is an empty partition on each side and the drive doesn't have a letter

    You deleted "system reserved" partition? Hope it's not that, do not rewrite too much on the unallocated space, do not format it, wipe it, the more times you rewrite the harder it would be found back. Here I find a video tutorial about how to recover the deleted partition from YOUTuBE hope it could help you

  2. As I understand, the disk is Disk 0, and the main partition on it doesn't have a disk letter. Did you try to assign it? (right-click, Assign a letter).

  4. Well even though Im 100% sure I deleted one of those partitions. It turns out I had Paragon HFS+ installed on my old OS...and those drives had some sort of residual OSX partition on them...

    So after re-installing HFS+ it seems I can access them again
  5. Go for an professional partition recovery software. I know a free recovery software which is designed to retrieve deleted partition,files, images and so on. You can download the free version here: http://freeware-recovery.blogspot. [...] overy.html
    Install and launch it as it is said in the tutorial. I think you will need a deep scan. It will take a little time. Hope it will help you.
