I made a mistake in letting Partition Magic 8 "repair" my HD. now I have lost my partitions except my C: D:, E:, F:, G: are gone and I can't even access them in Windows 7 disc management. When I tried to assign drive letters to each partition, I receive an error message "The opreation failed to complete because the Disk Management console view is not up-to-date. Refresh the view by using the refresh task. If the problem persists close the Disk Management console, then restart Disk Management or restart the computer". Please help, I would really like to recover the data in my lost partitions. I tried using Testdisk and it can see all the paritions, but it shows all the partitions as deleted. When I tried to change more than one partitions to L (Logical), it shows that the strucutre is Bad. Am I missinf a step here? Thanks.
