Question: what to do for setting back a partition?

Tried several things "normal" procedure did not work

cleaning harddisk and using backup same story

By the end of the day I lost some Pages documents, part of a diary, may be they are in the "starting up" disk which shows a large volume


How to repair this ?, to avoid a very expensive "recovery" of a specialist.

Any help greatly appreciated..

iMac (21.5-inch Mid 2011), macOS Sierra (10.12.5)

Are you asking about the 2011 iMac in your equipment profile or an old Mac laptop? You found the forum for obsolete, pre-2006 Mac laptops. With the great disparity in age, what model you have can make a difference in the answers you get.
