The other day, I attempted to make a Windows 8 Recovery USB using my external hard drive and the Media Creation tool. I specifically made a new partition for this process, as I had two other partitions on it with data. Making sure that the partition that was empty was selected, I successfully created the media. I couldn't get it to boot, however, and when I looked on the hard drive, its erased and merged my other two partitions, turning them into unallocated space, and the G: partition was the recovery drive. I don't want to touch the recovery partition, because I don't want to screw anything else up. Please help, I had a lot of important files on there and I'm not sure what to do.
