  3. How to recover personnel data from external HDD Recovery Disk

    Hello Nilesh,

    I believe the process of creating recovery disk is not correctly executed and that's why you have lost your data. I would recommend you not to write on the external drive for preventing the overwritten issue and download

    Stellar Windows data recovery software
    for recovering your data from the external hard drive.

    Recovering Overwritten External NTFS Disk

    diskpart doesn't show disk

    Hey,

    I am trying to install Win10 on a mac book air.

    However the diskpart does not list the disk even after reformatting the partition as NTFS per suggestion.

    read through this solution but cannot move to step 1 listed in the solution by Ivan as that disk doesn't see that partition it was just able to reformat.

    Regards
