Thank you for the response.  I did try Partition Find & Mount.  It couldn't find my lost partition.  I ended up using EASEUS to recover all of the data and then make a new partit... Go to the full post »

I needed to make a recovery drive for a laptop, so I downloaded the recovery data from the Microsoft web site.  I had a flash drive in a USB port and thought it was going to put it there.  Instead it ended up putting the info on my external drive.  I copied to the flash drive, so no problem there.  However, when I looked at my external drive (1.5TB) it only showed the 32GB recovery partition and nothing else.  So I deleted the information from the recovery partition and deleted the partition.  Now, windows won't see the external drive.  When I use the disk management utility, I can see the 1.5TB drive,  It shows it as Disc 0 partition 1, unallocated.  Anyone have an idea of how I can get windows to see the drive so I can get to the data?  Thanks!!

Thank you for the response.  I did try Partition Find & Mount.  It couldn't find my lost partition.  I ended up using EASEUS to recover all of the data and then make a new partition.  So, it all worked out.

Recovering lost partition from the drive is easy when you have the best data recovery software.  Stellar Windows data recovery software is another best tool which not only allows recovering lost files from the hard drive even it allows to recover the whole lost partitions.
