How to Recover Lost Disk Partitions

How to Recover Lost Disk Partitions?

Windows operating systems have evolved greatly from the time where hard drives were segmented off using a simple disk DOS command. Beginning with FAT16 and FAT32 systems complex partitioning was created so as to allow specialized applications to run. This process improved further with the advent of the NTFS file system. Of course as things evolve they become more sophisticated and this often means that they are more prone to problems.

For example, if you accidentally deleted or lost a partition containing important data, what can you do to access the important data on the deleted or lost partition?

These problems create a genuine need for a quality program for data recovery. And there are lots of tools in the market can help to recover the lost partition. And now, I take Wondershare Date recovery to show how to resolute the problem.

Wondershare Data Recovery is magic partition recovery software for computer users to recover lost or deleted partitions and repair your partition problems, say, partition cannot be accessed.

The first is Quick Scan: This scan finds all the partitions when there is some corruption with the MBR of Windows or it is missing or deleted. This scan can easily locate all the lost partitions in no time and allows Windows data recovery components to recover partition data.

Wondershare Data Recovery can help you to repair partition table and recover lost or deleted partitions except for physical damage, or hard disk (or other storage medium) failure. It is safe to use for only recovering your partitions through modifying partition table or boot sector, which means the software will never attempt to write to data area of the drive you are want to recover. Partition Table Doctor manages for MS-DOS, Windows 95/98/Me, Windows NT 4.0, Windows 2000, Windows XP and Windows 2003.

The second we call Thorough Scan: This is the advanced form of lost partition recovery. This disk scanning method is extremely helpful when a drive is re-partitioned or resized. Finding older or reformatted partition is extremely difficult, this is the reason why this method scans the drive heuristically and tries to locate and validate lost partitions. For e.g. on a 40 GB drive having 2 equal sized partitions (both NTFS) now re-partitioned and reformatted as two partitions, one 10 GB as NTFS and the rest space 30GB formatted as NTFS. Thorough scan designed and offered by Windows data recovery software is efficient enough to locate those two older 20 GB NTFS partitions to recover and restore lost data.

All that is required to recover lost partitions is to attach the faulty drive, set as a secondary drive, to another working PC and install Disk Doctors Windows Data Recovery Software. The software will scan the failed drive and locate all of the lost partition data
