DiskPart Recovering SD card

My problem:
Tried installing Raspberian into 32 GB SD card. The file system went corrupt-somehow. Could not recover the other big part in windows because windows system.
The diskmanagement system showed the 30GB space in dark, which could not be accessed by simple formatting or change of the drive letter.

So, I had to go commando.
Went to the command mode.
Windows> CMD (admin mode)
Then executed the following codes...

Now I can see the whole SD card space!
