About HDD partition recovery

Generally, a hard drive is
divided into one or multiple partitions before we can store files on it.
Partitions are separated sections on hard disk and they help users store and
manage data in a smart way. We can install operating system on one partition
and store personal files on other partitions.

All of us can encounter the
problem of partition deletion, formatting, corruption or damage, which results
in data loss. If partitions in question are filled with important files which
have not been backed up, you should know an efficient way to get back lost data
or partition.

Luckily, partition recovery
is no longer a difficult task in these days, there is partition recovery
software available for all users. Some partition recovery tool is easy to use and
provides great recovery result. Next we will talk about partition recovery
tools and how to perform the recovery.

HDD partition recovery guide 1: recover formatted partition

Partition formatting is the
process to remove data from a specific volume, after which all files and
folders are missing. Many users would like to format partition to wipe data,
free up disk space, repair corrupted partition, clear virus, change file system
type, etc. In some cases, users just format partition by mistake, and thus have
to face data loss issue.

Fortunately, in most cases,
we have a good chance to recover data from formatted partition. That’s because Windows
performs quick format by default, which does not permanently erase data. Once a
partition gets formatted, files will be removed without being wiped completely,
and data stays untouched even though you cannot see it in system. As long as
there is not data overwrite, you can get back formatted files with the help of
data formatted partition recovery software. Download and install DiskGenius on

crash, virus, partition table corruption, etc. Once a partition is missing, you
