    Hey all,

    This was my situation before:
    HDD1 (80GB) -> Partition 1 C:\ (80GB) (Windows Disk)
    HDD2 (200GB) -> Partition 2 D:\ (15GB)
    HDD2 (200GB) -> Partition 3 E:\ (150GB)
    HDD2 (200GB) -> Partition 4 I:\ (35GB)

    Now I wanted to merge my I:\ into D:\ so I deleted Partition 4 for deleting the files on it (pressed Commit). And created a new one and used the feature "Increase free space" on Partition 2 using the space of Partition 4.
    I deleted Partition 4 which only had 15MB left and pressed Commit again.

    It had to restart so I said ok and let it restart.
    Was gone making breakfast and went back and saw my pc was stuck at the bootscreen

    So I resetted my PC and after boot I saw that only Drive C:\ was there.

    I opened DDS to see what happened and HDD2 was unallocated!
    Now I lost all data from 3 partitions!

    I tried recover partitions from HDD2 within the program but it didn't found anything in Fast mode.
    In complete mode it didn't progress as I waited an hour and still no percent further!

    Please help me!
