    Hi,

    I have installed Partition Manager Pro 9.0 on Windows Seven WITHOUT ANY PROBLEM!!!!

    So, I decided to redistribuate Free Space from my C:\ to D:\

    My project: Gat my C:\100Go and D:\40Go to C:\40Go and D:\100Go

    So, i run Partition Manager Pro 9.0, click on Redistribuate Free Space

    I chose to expand D:\ with Free Space from C:\; I managed exactly as i wanted to!

    And click yes!

    Partition Manager start the operation and ask me to reboot to perform the processus!

    The processus run as i was used to (i did with processus before on few vista pc)

    It took quite 60min

    And the surprise at the launch of Seven, when my Desktop appear...

    Seven told me to Format D:\ in order to use it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    WHYo_O??

    I do not want format my D:\ because i have all my Data!!! (My Documents, My Pictures, My Music and all my Personnal Data)

    As i still have not format D:\ is there any solution to get data back?

    Thanks a lot for reading and help!!!

    I get more information about my disk and what happened or did not happen

    Before
    C:\ 100Go NTFS and D:\40 NTFS

    And now, when I go to PC Manager then Disk Manager I can see:

    C:\ 40Go NTFS
    D:\40Go RAW
    ?:\60Go not allocated

    I try now to get back my data which were on D:\ in NTFS!!!

    And merge D:\40 and ?\:60Go to get just one D:\100Go NTFS!!!

    Any idea?

    I still have not format D:\ as Seven ask me to do!

    With Testdisk

    I can see

    Boot sector:
    Error: Size boot sector 211131333 > partition 76854960
    Status: Bad

    Backup Boot Sector
    Status: Bad

    Setor are not identical

    A valid NTFS boot sector must be present in order to access any data, even if partition is not bootable

    Hi Panayotis,

    PM moved all the data and resized the partitions properly.

    It appears it did not update the information in the Partition Table.

    Paragon has a Partition Recovery function as well - you could have used that from the boot disc.

    PM10 officially supports Windows 7.

    Glad to see you have sorted it out.:D
