I have a little bit of a story. I spilt hot chocolate on my lovely Lenovo Ultrabook and killed it. I fixed it and put a new keyboard in. Windows was running quite slowly so I went to do the Windows 8 reinstall because it was UEFI and it worked. Unfortunately within about 30 minutes it was at 2% so I gave up. Got a USB CD drive and tried to install it that way. There were like 7-8 partitions from my 1TB hdd which I removed.
Before I removed them I was getting an error about not being able to make a partition. Once I removed these I still got the error so I guessed it was the cache drive inside. So I took the cache drive out and Windows worked fine. I was silly. I backed up my documents to the Cache Drives partition which was formatted for Windows (not sure what format). This drive also is for Intel Rapid Storage Technology and there is a setting to turn it off in the BIOS. I've tried this. No luck.
Windows just saids Please Reformat D. I've tried DiskDigger, TestDisk, FixParts, GPart and no luck. They either report wrong size or IO error.
I really need my data back so if anyone could help me that would be amazing.
