    Hi all, I have a dilemma, I accidently deleted my C drive (Windows 10 Home) and my E drive (Storage) playing around with a Storage Pool. I deleted the Pool.

    In Disk Management, my drives are now showing as unallocated. I downloaded a program called Mini Tool partition wizard, which can detect all my data is still recoverable.

    But I'd like to retrieve my partitions back to access the OS and data storage again. Is it even possible to recover the OS without having to re-install and recover the storage drive without recovering data and buy a new HDD?

    On linux there's a tui software called testdisk that scans your drives for partitions and partition tables letting you rewrite them back into the partiton table. It's saved me a few times, but it's not for the feint of heart.

    You need to remove those drives from the system, install a new HDD & OS then do the recovery of files.
    Do not reinstall on the same drives or you'll lose your data
