Restore RAW to NTFS without format and reinstall softwares ? Tags: Data Recovery NTFS Formatting Windows 7 jeanbureau November 16, 2012 10:45:13 AM Hello, How can I restore a RAW parition to NTFS without formatting ? I already know about recovery softwares but they just allow you to extract your personal files before formatting. I don't care about my personal files such as video and music. What I care about is NOT having to reinstall all my drivers and softwares because there are many. If I format I will have to reinstall every softwares including the operating system. I tried to re-write the partition with TestDisk but the partition still appear as RAW in the disk manager. I tried to use the recovery solution provided initially with my laptop to use restore points but they are all gone... Here are screenshot of TestDisk results I made: After a deep research: http://cjoint.com/12nv/BKncwqRfbak.htm clicked "ENTER" key, after the first screenshot: http://cjoint.com/12nv/BKncVT91CQi.htm 3rd line details: http://cjoint.com/12nv/BKndDqEmDgh.htm 4th line details: http://cjoint.com/12nv/BKndDZctaqJ.htm Disk manager Screenshot: http://cjoint.com/12nv/BKqnDyjVS2S.htm -------------- Thanks guys More about : restore raw ntfs format reinstall softwares Can't find your answer ?
