    DUDE its possible for you to get the data back from the harddisk.download complete version of easy recovery using kazaa.
    IMPORTANT:- NEVER DOWNLOAD EASY RECOVERY TO THE PARTITION U WANT TO RECOVER AND NEVER INSTALL IT IN THE SAME PARTITION.BEST OF LUCK!!

    Hello everybody
    i need your help regarding the software problem .
    I am a user of Paragon hard disk manager 2009 version (Demo version).
    I installed this software on my pc on few days ago.
    i use intel core 2 duo 2.2Ghz, 2 gb ddr2 ram, 250 GB hdd, and additional
    2 internal hard disks of seagate st31500341AS of 1.5 TB each , internet ,
    Windows XP sp 3,
    Prior to installing this software , i had accidently converted one of
    my hard disk (1.5 tb ) containing my songs collection from basic to dynamic disk.
    i successfully converted this dynamic volume into basic volume without the
    data loss using a third party software dynamic-disk . but even after the conversion of the disk from dynamic volume into basic volume , the " my computer " did not
    allowed me to see its contents , without clicking the option to format the
    drive, I of course, did not formatted the disk because my data was very
    important to me. So i thought of taking the backup of the drive in as such
    condition using the Paragon hard disk manager 2009 version (Demo version).
    i took the backup of that drive (1.5 tb ) and the archive of that backup was
    stored on other hard disk of same capacity (1.5tb ). The size of the archive
    of the data written on the hard disk was 605 GB ( backup was taken using
    Normal Compression ) . Then i formatted the previous hard disk after taking the
    backup using NTFS file system by using " Disk Management " of Windows XP.
    After that i selected the " Restore Wizard " of Paragon hard disk manager 2009
    version (Demo version). I selected the archive containing the backup of my data
    as source of data and selected the recently formatted 1.5Tb hard disk ( which earlier
    contained my data ), as the destination hard disk on where the data was to be restored.
    I did not changed any other settings and left them as by default , then i started the restore process.
    The whole process tokk about 7 hours to complete.
    After the process was complete the disk on which data was restored
    was not being allowed to be opened under "my computer" , when i checked the
    properties of the disk it was shown as having " RAW File System " ,
    and no other option was shown in the properties dialog box, whenever i double
    clicked on that hard disk icon, the message appeared that "The disk in drive G:\
    is not formatted , do you want to format it now. " I selected no and left the dialog box.
    Now i do not understand that why is the other 1.5 TB drive containing
    the backup archive is being easily opened and has NTFS file system , but the drive
    containing the data which is restored from the backup disk, is being shown as
    having " RAW File System " and i am unable to open it to see its contents witout
    formatting it again , this means that whole effort to take the backup and
    then to restore is wasted .
    I request you to please guide me that how can i convert this disk
    having " RAW File System " , into " NTFS file system " wihout any data loss from the disk.
    if there is some change in the settings to be made in the restore box please guide me that
    as well.
    Please guide me in detail.
    Thank you very very much
