Hard drive is a storage device and it is normally divided into partitions. Partitions are nothing but the logical subsections of the hard drive. Partitioning a hard drive is a better way to organize and manage the system data in a proper manner. Actually, hard drive has two partitions that is one for operating systems and software and another is for data.
There are many situations where you lose the data present in the partitions. Partition recovery on windows is a big issue now. Let us see most frequently occurring loss scenarios of data from the partitions.
Loss of data due to human error: This is nothing but loss of data occurs in partitions due to accidentally formatting, reformatting and reinstalling the partition.
Data loss due to corruption of boot sector: Master Boot Sector which is the main component gets corrupted means then it leads to the loss of that particular partition data and the data which is there in that partition becomes inaccessible by the user.
Accidental formatting of the hard drive: Sometimes if you accidentally or unintentionally format a hard drive that is you want to format one partition suddenly by mistake you formatted another partition. This also in turn results to the data loss of partitions.
Improper shut down of system: Improper shutdown or abrupt shut down of the system means forcibly attempting to shut down the system without closing all the documents or programs which are running also leads to the loss of data stored on the hard drive.
To get rid of all the above mentioned loss scenarios of data from partition the essential thing you need to do is to maintain a regular backup of the hard drive data. By this there will be no situation of losing the data. There are some situations like accidental formation of hard drives. At that time you can use Windows File Recovery Software and then can perform windows file recovery from formatted drive.
Features of Recovery Software:
This software has the ability to retrieve the data even after the hard drive is crashed or if it fails to boot also. This also has an opportunity to add/edit signatures for the files which are not listed. This software can also restore the data which is lost due to any partition errors also. Recovered data will be sorted according to their names, size of the file, file types and dates of creation. It also supports recovery of compressed files and any other data from NTFS formatted drives.
