I have accidentally delete my partition (Right click to My computer --> Manage). Now when i run some recovery tool, it show me every thing is there.

As i have not formatted the disk or partition so as of my knowledge that the drives entry from partition Table is deleted only. How can i get that entry to get back my drive in normal form

OS : Microsoft XP File System : NTFS

Which recovery tool did you run? – slhck Oct 18 '12 at 8:24

You can use Testdisk to easily recover the partition. It is a common data recovery software. It has a Windows version alternatively you can get it on a linux live cd.

Once you install it, all you have to do it search for all partitions, and once it finds your missing one, write the table.

It would be good to take MBR backup first... – Sampo Sarrala Oct 18 '12 at 8:38
