Recover Data from Accidentally Shrunk Partition

I Accidentally Shrink a Partition with Valuable Data. Is It Possible to Recover It Back?
"Hello! In this morning, I accidentally shrank the main partition on my WD external hard disk from 1TB into 320 GB on my Windows 8 computer. All my stored documents, films, audios, software and more files inside this partition were gone. Honestly, I had recalled to prepare the partition data backups in advance, but, forgot it after I did something else back. What can I do now? Can I merely extend this partition and run data recovery software to take everything desired back? Or does the partition expanding processes make thing worse? Thank you for any advice to help me recoverlost data from WD external drive on Windows 8!"

External Hard Drive Shows as Device Not Ready

External Hard Drive Is Not Accessible Since The Device Is Not Ready?
"Hello, I have a 1TB WD external hard disk that always works fine on my Windows laptop, which often is used at home, since it was bought about several months ago. However, recently, when I try to connect it to a Windows 7 desktop computer that often is placed in my office, this external drive is not shown in My Computer interface as usual. But, it shows up in Device Manager. But, when I attempt to click this drive there, it says it cannot be accessed now since the device is not ready. Can anyone help explain why such device not ready error happens to me? What can I do now to resolve this problem and access my drive contents easily? Thanks for any advice here."

Can Old Files Be Restored from Old Hard Disk?

Best Way to Move Windows to a Larger Drive without Reinstallation?

Can I Move Windows from One Drive to Another without Reinstallation?
Situation1: Hello, in order to extend my Windows 8 computer memory, I do have chosen a new larger SSD which could be used to replace my old internal hard disk that has many bad sectors. However, I am also worrying whether the computer Windows 8 OS, which is still installed on the old hard disk, could be moved to this newly bought SSD? What can I do to directly copy and paste the Windows 8 OS to this new SSD without reinstallation? I really don’t want to pay it again while reinstall it on the new drive. Thank you for any advice here!

Cannot Merge Unallocated Space to C Drive

Have Troubles in Merging Unallocated Space to C Drive?
"Hello, friends there! Recently, I have many troubles to merge the unallocated space of my photo partition to the C drive on my Windows 7 laptop. What can I do now to fix this? Honestly, the unallocated space, about 300MB, is separated from my photo partition that has been allocated to store different images, videos and songs, and locates on the right of this C partition. Is it possible for me to move the unallocated space into this C drive? Does that have some bad impact on the loading Operating System? What am I supposed to do before the emerging process? Thanks for any suggestion here!"

How Do I Back up Computer Data to Toshiba Storage External Drive?

Hello, I Want to Back Up Computer drive Documents to External Drive!
"Hey, how do you guys often back up your computer internal hard disk data to external hard disk? Honestly, I had got my own laptop about several months ago and didn’t know it was really necessary to make data backups to another storage device all the time. That’s also why I had been stuck in a really terrible data loss trouble last Friday due to accidental computer hard disk format. Though I do have recovered most of my computer hard disk data by paying a hard disk format recovery program, I do have realized how important it is to create computer drive data backups from now on. Do you guys get any data backup idea for me? How can I move everything important from my PC internal hard disk to a Toshiba external hard disk without transfer everything manually? Thanks for any idea! "
