MFTR overwritten. No drive D:


New Member
I erased the free disk space of drive D: which is a logical partition on my only physical drive. Apparently the program overwrote the Master File Table Records and as result, I do not see the content of the D: drive. When looking at the properties of the D: drive, Windows shows the drive as RAW. When I click on the D: drive in Explorer, I get the message: You need to format the disk in drive D: before you can use it. Do you want to format it?

When I click Cancel, I get the message:

D:\ is not accessible.
The volume does not contain a recognized file system. Please make sure that all required file system drivers are loaded and that the volume is not corrupted.

Is there a way to restore the MFTR of drive D: and recover my files?

My configuration is:
Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit SP1
1 physical disk (Disk 0: Basic) 500GB on which four logical partition exist: Recovery, System Reserved, C: and D

Thanks in advance for your help.
I am using the previous version of Eraser that I installed in 2007. I cannot see the exact version in Windows.
