    Recover data from RAW disk?

    Hello all!

    I had Windows 10 Enterprise on a ssd 480gb sandisk ultra II but It's corrupted, I can't even launch Windows or repair tools.

    I've managed to run repair tools and get a command prompt, as diskpart says, my disk is on a raw partition now, and it shows the following:

    Total space on disk: 448gb
    Space available on disk: 448gb

    I've read something that on raw filesystem Windows can't see the drive then I'm wondering, if diskparts says that the space available is the same tan total disk, does it mean that I've lost all my data? Is really important for me to recover the data.

    I've installed Windows 10 on another drive, but the drive isn't recognized, not in diskpart, not in Windows explorer, and tried about 5-6 programs for recover data on raw disk/partition and none of them saw my disk.

    The main question is if I lost all my data, because if not, I will give it to the shop for repair it.

    Thank you so much!

    Assuming the disk is not physically damaged and it is detected in BIOS and in Disk Management, then you can recover most of your data (depending on the presence and number of bad sectors and other issues) using special tools that ignore the partition information and search the drive sector-by-sector. There are several tools to use. I use Get Data Back (NTFS version in your case). This utility requires registration. The free version detects your data but won't save them to another disk! However, there are other free tools to try (such as Recuva), just Google "Data recovery". There is also a Windows Live CD based on Windows 10 that has a free data recovery tool (Recuva, haven't tried that myself). Download the 32-bit or 64-bit version depending on your computer (less than 4GB or more than 4GB RAM). Other live CD with recovery and many other tools is Digiwiz MiniPE (Google it).

    Lost data from RAW partition means you have lost data from unallocated space and to recover data from RAW partition Just open command prompt and run this command chkdsk (drive letter of your corrupt disk) : /f
    If it doesn’t work for you then write “r” in place of “f”

    Not likely. If a previously NTFS partition is now shown as RAW it means that it is either formatted or corrupt partition table In either case (assuming a quick format, not a full format) a recovery utility can detect and recover your files.
