  1. I accidentally wrote over my Windows partition with Android


    I am kind of at a loss on how to go backwards. I've got important stuff on the Windows partition that I must recover.

    Prior to loading Android 8 onto my Surface Pro 5 I made a separate partition. Somehow the boot loader didn't see that partition and treated the entire drive as one. This ended up formatting windows off the machine and now all I have is Android.

    This mega blows. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. I am some what tech savvy, even if it's in a bumbly way. Please let me know if this is doable on my own or if I should just hire a pro.

    W7 Hard drive partition issue

    to get rid of that 100 meg windows partition that setup creates for you on a new install on a blank hdd:

    - press shift+f10 when on the partition management screen in setup <-- this opens a command prompt
    - diskpart <-- start the windows command line partition management tool
    - list disk <--- list the installed hdds in this computer for the next step
    - select disk 0 <- might have to replace 0 with the number of the correct disk
    - clean <-- this will erase all data on the disk you selected one step up- dont use the wrong disk!
    - create partition primary <- creates a primary partition taking up all space on the drive, adjust the command if necessary
    - exit, exit to exit diskpart and the command prompt
    - click refresh in partition manager and select your newly created partition and install to that

    undo partition shrink

    Hi,

    If you accidentally shrink the volume of your SSD partition, there is an option to extend the volume as well. To extend the volume of your SSD partition, follow the steps below:

    • Press Windows key + X on your keyboard and select Disk Management.
    • Right-click the partition that you want to expand and click Extend Volume.
    • Select the amount of space that you want to extend.

    Keep us in the loop with the result.
