after completion of partition that 100gb was merged with my
D drive and C drive...

Error message:"The operation failed to complete because the Disk Management console view is not up-to-date.
Refresh the view by using the refresh task. If the problem persists close the Disk Management console,
then restart Disk Management or restart the computer.

When I run into a problem like this I use GParted Live.... Burn that image to DVD or USB and boot to it until you get the the GUI. Once there you will have a slider that you can use to allocate all the free space that Windows doesn't see.

Is this notebook?

Try "get data back for ntfs"..

Edit: it will need to be installed not at the same HDD need to be recovered...

If the drives are visible in Disk Management you should be able to allocate a drive letter then they should appear in Computer.

Free space is a space that after extend partitions been deleted by disk management, you could try partition table doctor to see whether it could retrieve the partition table, or some partition recovery software to recover partition. these software could let you explore the data before you retrieve the data. If you could not explore your data by these software you could try data recovery software.
