What Is NTFS Partition/Volume

Before I introduce how to recover NTFS volume, let's learn some knowledge about NTFS.

NTFS (New Technology File System) is the standard file system of Windows NT, including its later versions Windows 2000, Windows XP, Windows Server 2003, Windows Server 2008, Windows Vista, and Windows 7.

More and more computer users prefer to choose the NTFS file system, because we could put a single file over 4G into NTFS hard drive, which couldn't be put into FAT hard drive, and another advantage is that we could encrypt files such as DOC, EXL, PPT in NTFS volume, which could keep our privacy safely.

NTFS has become more and more popular. However, data loss issues from NTFS volume also bring us much trouble. This article will give you a free solution to recover NTFS volume.
