I know someone posted a very similar case some years ago but I still haven't found a solution - so I opened the topic.
I currently have the folowing problem and I hope someone could help me:
I wanted to format a microSD card using Fat32Formatter.
Accidentaly - the wrong drive was selected (my running SSD Drive with Windows) and after i clicked "initialize drive" the Laptop crashed: Bluescreen etc.
Restarting the PC doesn't help - no drive is found.
In my experience "initializing drive" doesn' format it, but it makes the drive space "unallocated"
Someone posted in another Forum that he managed to get his system back running with testdisk after the same problem so here I am.
Assuming I just have to create a partition Table, I created a bootable USB.
Testdisk doesn't find any recoverable partitions in the quick search, but in the Deeper search.
I actually have only one partition and testdisk is finding more that one and I am not sure which one to select.
so I just tryied it :writing the partition table. I tryied this procedure a couple of times but now I get annother error:
I don't get the error 'no drive found "
when starting, the Windows Bluescreen is reporting that windows needs to be repaired and I would need to insert the Windows CD/USB in order to start the Windows repair process.
So - before I make any more damaged I figured maybe someone can give me some usefull advice: maybe which partition to select or if it would be OK to start the Windows Repair process.
Also: Just started Gparted.
at first Gparted showed the hole ssd-drive als unallocated( 240gb)
an now I get:
I was using Windows 10 Pro 64 bit (didn't even write down the windowskey after the update from windows7)
I am using testdisk with the Gparted Live Bootable USB
meanwhile I have uploaded some photos of the current situation (Step by step through testdisk) - beacuse I haven't been able to find and upload the log file
