For installing Windows 8, i resized my F drive and E drive (i.e. decreased F drive space and increased E drive space) from EaseUS Partition Master Home Edition, after i clicked on the apply button, process went on, at last it displayed a error message, System Information Update Failed. I was unable to locate the F drive in my computer, it is not found but it is found in the EaseUS, i am unable to recover it.

I've tried diskpart tool, but when i list the volumes, there too i could not find the F drive
And when i tried the Disk Management in Windows and right-click on the F: drive (which has no letter over it) and then clicked properties, it is saying to refresh or relocate my drives or restart my PC.

None of them worked. Now what can i do?

I think the partition table of volume F is corrupted. Try "Testdisk" from following link.
http://www.cgsecurity.org/wiki/TestDisk
Its an open source software which is very helpful in these kind of situations.

Download windows installation package from following link.

Extract all file from zip file and run "testdisk_win.exe".
Follow these instructions.

1- Chose "Create"
2- It will show you harddrives attached with your computer. Select the harddrive you want to recover and press enter.
3- Because you were using windows base partition table choose "Intel" from the list.
4- Choose "Analyses"
5- It will show you your current partition structure. Just choose "Quick search" and continue.
6- It will ask you about searching partition made under vista or later. Because you were using windows 8, type "Y" and hit enter.
7- After a quick scan it will show you your lost partitions. Choose the partition you want to recover and press enter.
8- I case if the partition is not found choose the option "deeper search" otherwise select "Write".
9- Quite the program. restart your computer and check my computer.
