File Recovery Software Windows


Requirements: Microsoft Windows 8, Windows 7, Windows Vista, Windows XP, Windows 2003 and Windows 2008

There are many versions of Windows operating System like Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows NT, Windows 2000, Windows Server 2003, Windows Server 2008, Windows 95, Windows 98 etc. Windows 95 and Windows 98 supports FAT-16 or FAT-32 (File Allocation Table) file system. The Operating Systems that are released prior to Windows 95 support only FAT-16 file system. If partition size is greater than 2GB (Giga bytes), FAT-32 file system is used instead of FAT-16. Windows 2000, Windows XP, Windows NT and above version of Windows Operating Systems supports both FAT and NTFS (New Technology File System) file systems. FAT-32 file system uses 32 bits to allocate clusters. FAT-32 file system limits the size of FAT-32 volume to 32 GB because files of larger size may become inefficient. FAT maintains an entry for each cluster, which indicates that whether the cluster is bad, whether it contains a file or not. NTFS file system uses different approach to organize files. NTFS partition is divided into four sectors- they are Partition Boot sector, Master File Table (MFT), File system Data and a backup copy of the Master File Table. In MFT, information about every file and directories that are present in NTFS volume is stored. Whenever data is deleted from the hard drives, the content will remain in the same location but pointer to those particular files will get deleted.

There are many scenarios in which files will get deleted from Windows XP, Windows 7 and Windows Vista:

  • Files deleted due to formatting hard drive: Formatting is done in two levels-they are low-level formatting and high-level formatting. When you buy a new hard drive, you must format the drive in order to make it readable and writable. If you are formatting the drive, which is already used, then it will erase all the data stored on the drive. Installing new hard drive for the first time, removing errors from the hard drive, removing viruses from the hard drive, cleaning the drive to sell computer are some cases in which formatting becomes necessary. However, by performing data recovery after format, you can recover the lost files.
  • Files deleted due to system restore: Before restoring system, make sure that you have backup of all-important data. When you are restoring your system then all the data that is stored recently, will get deleted. While choosing restore point you must choose it very carefully because if you choose older restore point instead of the one which you wanted to choose, then the system will get restored to the older restore point and it will lead loss of files. These lost files can be recovered by performing file recovery after system restore.

  • Files deleted external USB drive corruption: You may connect your pen drive or external hard drive to computer to transfer photos, audio files, video files or any other data. You may delete some data accidentally from pen drive or from external hard drive. Then such deleted files will not move to Recycle Bin and this will lead to data loss condition. Sometimes, you may format external hard drive accidentally, and then all the data stored on external hard drive will get deleted. A good external USB drive data restoration software will help you to recover deleted files in such scenarios.
  • Files deleted due to memory card corruption: When memory card is connected to virus-infected computer, viruses may affect the memory card, and files present in the memory card may get corrupted. While transferring files from one mobile phone to another mobile phone, memory card present in the mobile phone may get affected by viruses. Sometimes you may delete photos, from mobile phone or from digital camera accidentally. All these situations will lead to loss of files from memory card. A powerful SD memory card file recovery software makes recovery from corrupt memory cards possible.

Before formatting, reformatting, partitioning, repartitioning drive, it is better to make sure whether you have taken backup of all important files or not. Take a backup of all-important files into CD, DVD or external hard drive. However, in case there is no backup then to recover lost files after partitioning errors, you have to go for file recovery tool. One more precautionary measure that you must take is defragmentation of data. Defragmentation means reorganizing the data stored on the hard drive in a continuous fashion. If you organize the data in continuous fashion, then the chances of occurrences of data loss decreases. If you have formatted your hard drive without taking a backup then there is no need to worry. File Recovery Software can recover data from formatted, reformatted, partitioned, repartitioned hard drive. The software has the capacity to recover files from Windows 7, Vista, XP FAT16, FAT32, NTFS, ExFAT partitions/drives. The software can restore MP3 files deleted / lost from RAID0, RAID1, and RAID5 partitions, which have been formatted. The software can also recover files from emptied Recycle Bin on Windows operating system.

Note: Moreover, you can empploy this powerful software to undelete data from unmountable Mac drive like SATA, SCSI, IDE, etc compatible with latest versions of Mac OS X Lion, Leopard, Snow Leopard, Mavericks, etc. To grab more information, simply tap here http://www.myfilerecovery.net/unmountable-drive-mac.html.
