|I screwed up pretty badly.|
I recently bought an SSD, and migrated my OS partition from my old HDD to it- leaving my HDD partitioned into a 200GB partition containing all my old OS files, and a 1.6TB partition containing everything I don't want on my SSD- programs, media, and the like.
I left that 200GB partition for a while to ensure my SSD didn't have any issues, and only just now tried to delete it using Disk Management. After deleting it, I tried to merge it with my 1.6TB partition through Disk Management, only to accidentally create a Dynamic Volume. I wanted to return it to normal so I could try again, and tried to delete the 200GB partition- *poof*, my entire 1.8TB partition disappeared.
I have a lot of important files on that partition, and only some of them are backed up onto another drive. I don't need to get anything from the 200GB partition, but the 1.6TB one is vital to recover.
What would be the best way to go about recovering that partition? I'm trying the EaseUS Partition Recovery Wizard at the moment, but when it comes to this kind of stuff, I'm a little in the dark.
Edit; the wizard has discovered multiple 200GB partitions that are flagged as Logical partitions, but the 1.6TB partition is nowhere in sight as of yet. Will it appear as multiple partitions, or as one partition in the full size?
