Lost Partition Structure, What Should I Do?

When I replaced the hard drive in my HP DL180 G5 server, I checked the hard drive status using Disk Management. I selected converting to GPT disks, but all my hard drive partitions were deleted. All my data is lost. Please help how to recover the partition structure in this case.

If you are using Disk Management or Diskpart to convert GPT disks, you need to delete all existing partitions before you can perform the task. If you are unfamiliar with computers, you may delete partitions without backup, resulting in data loss. Then you can try professional and good partition management software. EaseUS Partition Master can help you recover lost partitions easily.
