"I had a storage HD on my desktop .I wanted to clean the smaller partition and merge it with the larger partition. I used diskpart and I probably messed up after cleaning the smaller partition. Now I have left with this HD as disk 1 with no volume (disk 0 being C drive with OS). Is there any program (free specifically) that can recover data from a deleted volume?"
