@duster_1, welcome to the forum.

 

If the D: drive was the HP Recovery partition, you will have to do a full system Recovery to reinstall it.

Hi Duster_1, To recover your D drive first you need to have another drive with the enough space to restore all your drives files. You cannot recover deleted files at the same location from where they have been deleted. After checking that you have another drive to restore your D drive data you can download deleted partition recovery software of stellar phoenix. I believe it will work for you thanks.

Just so you know ... if you use a partition recovery tool to recover the Recovery partition from your current drive to a different drive, even if you then copy that partition back to your present drive, that will NOT work.  This is because the partition was at a specific address on your original drive, and the likelyhood of putting it BACK at that same address is virtually nil.

 

As you have already been told, the ONLY way to get that partition back (in a way that it will work) is to do a full factory restore of your PC using Recovery Media.
