How to Recover Partition from Toshiba Laptop?

“Hi everybody, I use Toshiba Satellite C850-X0110 laptop running on Windows operating system. It consists of Core i5 (3rd Gen) processor, 2GB DDR3 RAM, 500 GB hard disk, Multi-touch Touchpad with Gesture support and HD Clear SuperView LED Backlit Display. I already partitioned the physical hard drive into 2 logical partitions; one partition for OS and another one for storing my personal data. I thought of doing one more partition for storing some confidential office documents. So, I decided to expand the personal storage partition using Disk Management; but due to some interruption while creating partition the entire data stored in drive got lost. Now I don’t know what to do and how to regain my data back from this laptop hard drive. If you know any solution for this problem, then kindly help me please? Thanks in an advance”
