    Sample Fifth Screen:

    On completion of the analysis you will get a screen showing the found partitions. Please take a screenshot and post. ( Your screen will show the found partitions on your disk and will be different .) Close TestDisk.

    Do you see all the partitions that existed in the disk or some are missing?

    Let me examine it and decide what is to be done further.

    Fix 'Dynamic / Invalid Disk'

    You will do all operations in Windows.

    Plug in your faulty 750GB drive - which I presume is inside an external enclosure.

    If you have another external drive with sufficient space , create a folder named Recovery and plug it in too. You will be copying the recovered data into this folder. ( If you do not have another external drive, skip this. We shall run TestDisk and ascertain if it is possible to recover the data. If we can, then you can get the external drive, run TestDisk again and copy the data.)

    Run TestDisk as administrator.

    Third Screen:

    To be continued after a short break.

    Convert Basic Disk into Dynamic Disk

    Hi Charbel,

    It would be helpful if you mentioned the things that you have tried to do that failed so that we can skip those steps. You can follow the steps provided in the article:
    How to convert a basic disk to a dynamic disk in Windows 7, to change a basic disk to
    a dynamic one. The instructions are also applicable for Windows 10. You can also check this article:
    Extend a basic volume.

    Ensure that you create a back up for your system as well.

    Regards.
