I need your help to see if it is possible to recover the data from a HDD that I accidentally damaged using diskpart. Well I explain in summary how everything happened. Yesterday I decided to install Windows 10 on a SSD (120GB); besides that SSD I have a HDD (1TB) where I have all my files stored. To install Windows 10 I used an USB stick that I managed to boot correctly using the UEFI option. Once inside the Windows installation program, in the part where you need to select the drive where you want to install it, I selected the SSD but it gave me an error that said the unit was in MBR and I needed to convert it to GPT. So following a tutorial that I found online, I did this from the CMD:
- disk 0 (SSD) 120gb
- disk 1 (HDD) 1tb (it has 2 partitions, the 1st in 900gb and the other 100gb)
select disk 0
create part pri
select part 1
select disk 0
select volume 1 (this is where I think I made the mistake, volume 1 was the 1st partition of disk 1 HDD I think, I didn't check it)
convert gpt (here it gave me an error and could not convert to GPT)
Then I went back to the installer of Windows 10 and again in the part where it asks you to select the unit where you are going to install Windows was when I realized the damage I had done. Not only I was not able to convert the SSD to GPT but also accidentally deleted the volume of the HDD (1st partition of 900gb) where I had my files; the 2nd partition was not damaged. Now I do not know if everything I had in that partition was deleted or there is still a way to recover it.
By the way, I already managed to convert the SSD to GPT and install Windows 10 correctly, but this time of course, I did it by disconnecting the HDD to avoid doing more damage. Currently I still have it disconnected.
I would like to know what I can do to try to recover that HDD partition. The "delete volume" command is the same as doing a format or it can be recovered?
I would appreciate if you could help me. Thanks and regards.
