I got a problem after a dual boot system setup.
First of all, I installed Windows 7 Ultimate and Debian 7. Wheezy.
In the beginning I started with 3 hard disks. One SSD 120GB Samsung 840 Pro Series, A WD 2TB WD20 EARS and a WD 500GB WD5000.
I wanted to put both systems on the SSD and put both paging and swap partitions on the WD500GB, with the /home and /var as other partitons. The WD2TB I did not want to touch.
I had several problems which lead me to removing the WD2TB and WD500Gb. Leaving me with only the SSD I managed to succesfully install Windows 7 and Debian in a dualboot.
During the problems I had, as I was installing Debian 2 times in different manors, EFI no EFI. It seems like, as GRUB asked, that on the first disk, and I believe that is the WD2TB one the MBR was written for Debian. However, because of that and having the system on the SSD and the EFI issues I was never able to boot the system.
After successfully integrating the WD500 into my dual boot and setting up Linux I figured it is time to go back to windows and introduce the WD2TB again. Bad luck. No partitons were found!
It only shows an empty 1.8TB drive. I did NOT partiton anything during the installation with linux! I never chose any options about that.
I googled a bit, but I have no idea how to go about partition recovery. I found the tool ZAR which shows me the following:
It does show me the correct partitions that I had setup before! I have a 500Gb partiton full of data, 1.2tb and a 250gb partiton.
Is there anyway, hopefully, that I can get the drive in a state as before the dual setup ?
Your answers are highly apprechiated!
