I deleted F: partition in error. How can I undelete. EASEUS PARTITION MASTER HOME EDITION thats supposed to be free says I have to upgrade and buy the professional pack in order to undelete. Is their another way.

I wanted to make more room on C: so that I could upgrade from Vista to Win7 Professional. I didn't realize that win7 uses 16gbs.

Thank you so much for your help!

What size is C now, how big is the whole drive, and how much free space do you have?

Go to Start then to Run
Type in compmgmt.msc and click Enter
On left side click on Disk Management
On right side you will see you hard drive.
Now I need you to take a screenshot and attach it to your next reply. Do the following to take a screenshot while the above is open and showing on your desktop.

To do a screenshot please have click on your Print Screen on your keyboard. It is normally the key above your number pad between the F12 key and the Scroll Lock key
Now go to Start and then to All Programs
Scroll to Accessories and then click on Paint
In the Empty White Area click and hold the CTRL key and then click the V
Go to the File option at the top and click on Save as
Save as file type JPEG and save it to your Desktop


Attach it to your next reply

Right click on the FREE SPACE and then click DELETE.
That will change the free space to unallocated space.
Then right click on the partition C immediately to its left and click extend.
You will the be given the option of how much to extend it by.


YOU CAN USE this procedure as the unallocated space must be contiguous to the partiton you are GOING to extend., that means it must be immediately to the right of it in Disk management. - which it is.

BE AWARE PLEASE that there is always a risk however small - you should if you wish to ensure that all is not lost if something goes wrong that you have full backups.

ALSO IF THIS IS LAPTOP ensure you are on mains power and NOT battery power,.
A power loss while the partiton is being extended is disaster.


YOU do NOT need to buy EAseus for this purpose as the free edition also provides the facility.


NB
I am unsure as to what you mean to RECOVER the original F parition - that is a different issue, to what I think you are asking about using the NOW free space to extend C.

Also not knowing what the computer specs are - have you ensured its capability of running Windows7 from a hardware aspect.

Hello MacBoatMaster,

Your suggestions worked on my laptop hard drive issues. Thank you much for your support.
I would like to learn from you as you were most helpful. Now I can work on the Win 7 upgrade.

Thank you again

Thks for posting
the appreciation
That was good of you.
You would be amazed how many people do not actually bother.to do so.

Actually, once you had posted the screenshot asked for by my colleague rshaffer61, it was then a rather straightforward issue.
However, that is only if you know how disk management works.

Windows 7 compatability
http://www.microsoft...us/default.aspx

all sorts of tests here. See below first block for scan your computer itself for compatability with 7


Thanks again, you just come back whenever you wish.
