Restore partition on hdd

Over hard Hitachi IC35L020AVVA07-0 (20 Gb) was produced following barbarism:
— hooked up as slave, but first put the jumpers correctly, the position of the 2 Gb clip
— in Windows via disk manager on the visible partition (which was visible the size of 2 Gb) produced the action mark as active

As a result, now you can see the partition by 2 Gb, which can not be read, and the remaining space 17.7 Gb is seen as unpartitioned space.

Is it possible to recover data from it, and how?

GetDataBack help You.

I once helped GParted. I also killed the partition table when you install Linux. :)

In any case, you first should make ddrescue (or something similar) to post bad advice not to remain completely without data (ddrescue takes images with devices, regardless of the availability of these partitions, or anything else, esoi who do not know)

Put the jumper back to 2 GB. If the disk is readable to recover data. Put the jumper in the correct position. Erase disc and 3 times to format.

And. there is some Linux (in extreme cases) a program that recovers data scan of all sectors (not looking at the partition table).

Friend manually restored completely erased the partition table (where he has first, what the virus was, then playful hands and vosstanovlenii) using WinHex (it is a wonderful mode disk edit). In Your case all is simple — find the MBR using a corresponding template in WinHEX and beautiful sign enter in the correct number of sectors in the partition.

A bit of googling, forums not bad to say about TestDisk (OpenSource): www.cgsecurity.org/wiki/TestDisk

TestDisk can
Fix partition table, recover deleted partition
Recover FAT32 boot sector from its backup
Rebuild FAT12/FAT16/FAT32 boot sector
Fix FAT tables
Rebuild NTFS boot sector
Recover NTFS boot sector from its backup
Fix MFT using MFT mirror
Locate ext2/ext3/ext4 Backup SuperBlock
Undelete files from FAT, exFAT, NTFS and ext2 filesystem
Copy files from deleted FAT, exFAT, NTFS and ext2/ext3/ext4 partitions.

I do not use, but if you do not advise you to risk it.

I restored with Acronis, there's a "Recovery partition".

Thank you all!
The image of the disk just in case I made with paragon backup & recovery.
To restore the partition failed monsters from Acronis and Paragon haven't been able to do.
But it helped GetDataBack, which without noise and dust just showed the entire file structure and gave an opportunity to copy everything you need.
