    Diskpart terror


    Hi,

    I'm totally new to forums but I need help...;.PLEASE

    I used DISKPART to clean a partition, I've used DISKPART many times but I don't know what happened this time. I was going to reinstall win7 and as usual I selected the disk, next the partition (one of 4), followed by "clean", "active" and finally "assign". then whein I rebooted to install win7 there showed up only one huge partition, all previous 4 were gone. I've searched the net to find a solution to recover my lost partitions but haven't found an answer.

    PLEASE help, a life time of pictures are in one of those lost partitions.

    Thanks

    Hi Kubie,

    You should start a thread in our sister forum Windows 7 Help Forums in the hardware section,

    Hardware & Devices - Windows 7 Help Forums

    I've seen some success stories happen. Don't try fixing anything until you get better instructions.

    So creating a new login is more hassle than possibly getting your data back?

    So you refused to follow advice of a mod and then repost again in another topic....

    The clean command erased the Master Boot Record on your HDD..

    You may be able to recover the partitions or files using the recovery tools in my sig below..
