    This can happen when the MBR is damaged. What kind of drive is it? SATA internal, SSD, external USB, etc,etc.

    Try this free program, there should be a "check partition" function. It may help with a repair,
    or at least give you some more information. Of course it goes with out saying, DO NOT format the disk.

    See this image. You can see the highlighted partition and the "check partition" option on the left.

    If you don't see a partition to select, this may not work for you. I do not have a drive in this state so I'm unable
    to look any further. You may need to follow the steps in this thread, which uses a Linux live system.

    This method involves copy the data off to a different disk, reformatting the problem drive, and copying the data back.

    OK - I see what you mean. There are other things in this program that may help, for example the partition recovery wizard.
    See this:

    Oh, the program is looking for unallocated space, while yours in unformatted. I thought they were similar enough.

    I'm not sure what else to suggest. The safest thing is to use a Linux live system to copy your data out.
    See the link above. I'm surprised that the Partition Master program cannot handle this. Perhaps it is worth contacting Easeus to see what they say about the problem.

    There is a program suite called Testdisk which runs in a CMD window. It's a little complicated and will require
    some reading. The authors have provided a detailed example. to show how it works. I was able to use it
    recently to fix a partition that had an error, it was RAW when it should have been NTFS
    TestDisk Step By Step - CGSecurity

    Perhaps give this a try, see if testdisk_win.exe can identify your partition, and offer to fix it.
    Otherwise you may be forced into the Linux solution.
