How Hard Drive Data Get Lost?
Lost data from hard drive may be considered by computer users and many experts to be permanently destroyed, with no hope of repair. And in most cases, hard drive data loss is complex. When hard drive data is lost, the first thing that you must check is whether it is a physical hard drive problem to stop you from accessing the data, or just a logical problem to cause the data loss like deletion, format or hard drive partition loss, etc. In fact, the latter situation can be simply repaired by hard drive data recovery software. While to repair the former, you need to send your hard drive to the data recovery service.
Why can data lost from hard drive be repaired or recovered? Lost data was not really damaged, even if you have already emptied the Recycle Bin, used Shift Delete, or the hard disk has been standard/quick formatted, or partition is corrupted or lost. Only file system is changed in the disk. Like in a huge library, the books are still on the shelves, only the catalog which recorded the location of books is lost. And the library is the hard drive, the catalog is the file system of operating system, books are the clusters of hard disk.
How to Repair Hard Drive Data Loss Problems?
The data lost due to logical problems as mentioned above still exists on the hard drive, but they currently can't be located by the Operating System. And if the clusters of the hard drive containing the data have been overwritten, corrupted or physically damaged, then the chance to repair data is small. If they are in fine condition, the free hard drive data recovery software could search for remained file system entries and try to analyze and find the location of those clusters containing the lost data, or scan all unallocated clusters then try to rebuild the lost data.
