Hi everyone. I have big problem after trying to resize the partition size.
I got HDD 1.5 TB .
1) partition my second WIndows
2) partition was unllocated
3) partition was main store over 1.2 TB.

I wanted to merge (2)unlocated partition with 1) where was my second OS. After commiting the comand in Acronis DD it had restarted os...

after I got the acronis console interface with working in progress ... it is stuck in 25%.. after waiting lots time I have restart the pc manualy.

now I got in WIndows ROW disk (3) store partition) with 0 free space.
I cant understand why the partitions wich was performed for operations was not been changed but main store partition was currupted???
I cant do any check.. by the dskchk or through acronis check. its write Master table files currupted or somethink like that.

can I do some UNDO of acronis disk director to return the master table file?

need your help! Cause in the main store was the family video of my 1.3 year child from he was born until now... lots of very valuable information.

Thanx for reading and please help me!

Is it correct that you can boot into Windows now? If so, can you post a screenshot of what Disk Management shows for the drive? It may help to see it.

Will DD let you Explore the #3 partition?

There is no "undo" function in DD. It's not recommended to run chkdsk on a partition that's corrupted like this since it could cause further damage.

Thanx for responce.

yes, its right my OS in different HDD. DD cant explore it, and cant to do any operation exept format. Chkdsk dont working.
I have already done some disk check by the Paragon and I am sure made big mistakes couse it makes some changes but without any resultat.

1-2 pics shows the WIndows message.
3 pic shows the DD message.
4 pic shows Paragon Disk Manager message.
5 pic Disk manager

Partition is very good can be looking in Paragon - i have russian version and i translated as you can see in the pics i have attached, it is 3 partition with the same size. I dont have any mind why it shows like that.

here is the pics i think it says much more than I can.

Do you know what the original sizes were of the partitions on the 1.5TB drive? Including the location and size of the unallocated space?

You may need to delete the "RAW" partition (don't wipe it or anything like that) and then do a scan to undelete partitions. Knowing the original sizes would help you recognize if the partitions found were correct.

In most cases, the problem you have is not one that can be easily fixed. Usually, the best you can get is to use data recovery programs for the files on the corrupted partitions and that often doesn't have good results.

However, since you were making changes to the first two partitions and the third one shouldn't have been modified, it's possible it's still intact on the drive and just "lost" from the partition table.

Do not run chkdsk on the drive and do not format it. Either of these may destroy any chance of recovering the partition.

Hi MudCrab
well i think i do know but approximately, 39gb unlocated, and 1.2 gb main stor

I think idea is good, i was thinking to delete partition. BUt some scan from paragon, as i can see now after trying to use data recovery programs, the files were cut of the thousands small peaces ... for example video or audio can be cut for 300 parts with size the from 20kb to 200 kb.
If I delete partition the files still be sliced ? now the second problem is with the integrity of files.

I will try use method to delete partition.

Hi all, 

Recently I had a similar issue with Acronis Disk Director 12.5 and stumbled upon this thread. After merging for a whole day two partitions into one (1.4 TB) it has thrown corrupted disk at me. I was confused since it's not of a big deal for such a program.

However, thanks to Steven S. recommendation of DMDE program (https://dmde.com/) I have successfully restored all my files. It has a free version although limited with how many files you may restore at once but it's very powerful in such cases! The DMDE is easy to use, just open it and the program will guide you through the process thanks to helpful tooltips.
