Deleted Partition Recovery

  • Recovery of Data from Deleted Partition

    A hard disk partition is a logical division of a hard disk into multiple logical storage units called partitions, to treat one physical disk drive as multiple disks. After partitioning, you can have different operating systems on the same hard disk and can create the appearance of having separate hard drives for multiple users, file management, or other purposes. The complete information partitions is stored in a partition table that defines how many partitions the hard disk is formatted into, the size of each, and the address where each partition begins. There are different hard drive manufacturers like kingston, seagate, sony, toshiba, etc to name a few.

    Disk partitioning can be done using Windows Disk Management Utility or with the help of any third party tool such as Partition Magic. Sometimes, situations occur when these utilities accidentally deletes a hard drive partition, which may cause huge loss of data which is stored on that particular partition; so you have to use a good deleted hard disk drive recovery software, to retrieve all the data from the deleted partition. Other than the case of deleted partition, here are some cases which can cause data loss from the partitions:

    • During a file system conversion on a partition, errors may be encountered corrupting that particular partition; thus leading to crucial data loss.
    • Some users want to have multiple operating systems on their hard drives. During the dual or multiple OS installation process, some of the partition information, present in partition table, gets corrupted making the data inaccessible.
    • While trying to create new partitions, partition errors may occur which can lead to data loss.
    • Virus intrusion on boot sector causes operating system malfunction, due to which OS does not points to the correct location of the partition, making the data inaccessible.

    To overcome these partition problems, you need to use a recovery tool to recover data from the partitions.
