    How to recover data from non-overwritten blocks and sectors?


    Guys, I beg you help me to save my life. If I can't recover I DEFINITELY LOSE MY JOB.

    I have a notebook with 250GB SSD. It had 2 main GPT partition; Local Disk C and Local Disk D. First one size was 100GB for Windows 10 and the next one was 140GB for storing some data.

    What happened : My Local Disk C was full of important data and had just 5GB of free space. So because of some reasons I decided to reinstall a clean Windows 10 and so I moved all sensitive data from C to D. But I forgot to do that with an important folder and so it remained at C without I noticed.

    Then, I started to install windows from USB installer and when I asked me to choose the target partition I deleted partition Recovery , Local Disk C , MSR. i.e I just kept Local Drive D. So I made a new drive using the provided unallocated space and installed Windows on it.

    Windows has been installed and now I'm using some recovery softwares and they only show me current data and folders of NEW windows that are completely useless, not previous state that contains that important data.

    Guys Do you agree with me that 80% of Drive C is NOT overwritten? New Windows has used only 20GB of Drive C and tell me why I can't recover data from rest intact sectors of Drive C?

    Again ask all of dear Moderators and VIP members deal with my thread as an urgent state and help me to recover my files.

    I deleted partition Recovery , Local Disk C ,
    Since you Deleted Partition C: and then Windows created a new C: partition and install Windows on it, you most likely have overwritten the data on the previously deleted partition. If you just left the space Unallocated you would have had a good chance of recovering the data, but since you also overwritten it, it will be near impossible to recover anything off of that partition.
    You can try the FreeTestDisk Program, I have had the best luck with GetDataBack, but I don't think you will be very lucky.
