How to Recover Corrupted, Deleted or Lost Partitions
Many of us need the partition recovery now and then. You may have the experience that system can not find partitions. If you want to access to these files on this partition, you have to recover the lost first.
As we know, one physical disk can be divided into several partitions (the drive letters such as C:, or D:), they are also called "volumes". Once a hard disk is divided into several partitions, directories and files of different categories may be stored in different partitions. More partitions provide more control but too many may become cumbersome. Careful consideration of the number of the partition is necessary.
What are the purposes for partitioning?
We can conclude the purposes of partitioning as the following:
(1) Keeping Operating System files, frequently used programs and user data near each other.
(2) Having an area for Operating System virtual memory swapping/paging.
(3) Having cache and log files separate from other files.
(4) Use of multi booting setups, which allow users to have more than one. For instance, one could install Mac OS X, Microsoft Windows or others on different partitions of the same hard disk.
(5) Protecting or isolating files, to make it easier to recover data from corrupted partition. Other file systems won't be affected and the drive's data may still be salvageable if one of partitions is corrupted.
(6) Raising overall computer performance on systems with smaller partition is more efficient.
