Recover Files Lost After Partitioning Error

Hard disk is an essential component of any computer system for storing digital data. It is a secondary storage medium. It stores data on the electromagnetic disk. The performance of any system depends on the accessing speed and the storage capacity of the hard drive. All the files are stored on the hard drive. Hard drive uses file formats such as FAT32, NTFS, NTFS5, etc for organizing and manipulating the data on it. To increase the efficiency and performance of the hard drive, it is being segmented into different logical drives. Segmenting the storage space in hard disk into several logical drives is termed as partitions. With the help of partitions, you can assure that the system files and program files separate from data files. Partitioned is done before formatting the hard drive. In case, during the process of partitioning if you tend to lose data from hard drive due to some unavoidable circumstances, then you need to use powerful data recovery software. In order to recover files lost after partitioning error you need to make use of deleted partition recovery software.

Some common causes leading to loss of data from Hard Drives:

  • Third Party Applications: If some third party application corrupts the header of the partition, which stores all the details of the drive like creation date and time, size of a partition, etc then this leads to inaccessibility of the partition and there is a huge loss of data.
  • Data loss due to re-formatting a partition: Sometimes you may feel it's necessary to change from one file system to another file system i.e. from FAT to NTFS and vice-versa on Windows OS. Errors during the file systems conversion can result in corruption of the partition and data loss.
  • Data loss due to re-partitioning the hard drive: When the size of an existing partition needs to be changed or a new partition needs to be created, re- partitioning can be done. Improper re-partitioning process might corrupt the existing partitions and results in loss of data.
  • Virus Attack: If Partition Map gets corrupt by some harmful virus then also all the data is deleted and lost. If the Master Boot Record gets corrupt or damaged then also data is lost and deleted.

To get back the deleted and lost data you need to take some precautions, you need to have a copy of all the files as backup. You should stop using the drive after the data is lost in order to prevent from overwriting of new data.
