    Here die Disk Management image. The "bad" Disk is Disk 1 or the one just above Drive C in upper pane.
    Thanks,

    Disk# 1 - how is it currently initialized?
    MBR
    GPT

    You can use Disk management to tell.
    Click on the View menu
    Expand Bottom
    Select Disk List

    You don't have to post a screen shot, just identify the drive and Partition Style
    Disk# 0 - GPT
    Disk# 1 - ??? ..... probably GPT

    Hi,
    Disk 0 = GPT
    Disk 1 =MBR. This Disk is a normal internal 2,5" Disk that I a put it in a external case. I bought new along with the case and just used it on USB 3.0 Ports.

    See what Minitool Partition Wizard (PW) - Partition Recovery tells you
    see Post# 16

    Changes to the drive require you to press Apply (upper left)
    -> If you are not sure, do not press apply. You can cancel the pending operations.

    Post screen shots so members can see what you see.
    Main screen
    Quick scan results

    If you see the partition(s) that were on the drive, try the PW Explore Partition

    You might have to run the long scan - not sure until the quick scan results

    I have currently normal access to the HDD. There are several files that were recovered by CHKDSK and others are just there. I lost 3 VMs and 1 System image and some other files but I have copies of these ones, but not of the VMs.
    I do not need to recover Partition, I need recover Data.
    To recover Data I need the Minitool Data Recovery and I have to Pay for it.
    I am convinced that all Data is scrambled on Disk so I am afraid it will be waste of money and time.
    If you have another suggestion, I will great full, otherwise I will erase, Zeroing Sectors and reinitialize the Drive, there is still in some folders "Access Denied" messages and Windows 8.1 was complaining that Recycling Bin of it was corrupted.
    That was something severe happening to FS of the Drive.

    I am still concerned about what leaded to the Data lost, I want to figure out what happened because I want to avoid it happens again.
    My thoughts are, there is nothing wrong with hardware of the HDD (it is marked as Healthy) and the crucial step was when I run "Scan and Fix" that was changing the Drive from "normal access" to "Access Denied" and it showed simultaneously in Explorer as "Unformatted".
    What could have happened?

    I found on the HDD a recovered Folder from CHKDSK with deleted information , I think, about several "Owners" of the Drive.
    Can it be that, some how, the Owner information has been corrupted / Deleted , that made the System lost the Control of the HDD and because of that changed it to the "Access Denied" state ?
