Further Tips About Deleted Partition Recovery

Generally, the partition is something necessary while operating a computer and saving data on it. It's like a database for saving, storing, and transferring data on the computer. Divide memory or mass storage into isolated sections.

However, the partition on the local hard drive or external hard drive might be lost or cannot be recognized when we operate the computer for mistakenly deletion, format, or virus attack.

Common Causes of Lost/Deleted Partitions

  • Accidental deletion: you may mistakenly delete an entire volume when you try to clean a specific partition
  • Corrupted partition table: the partitions table can be damaged by virus or faulty disk operations, which can lead to a lost partition.
  • Power failure: a sudden power outage may cause partition inaccessible.
  • Bad sectors: If the partition has bad sectors, it can not be able to be recognized by your computer.
  • Upgrades: upgrades will change the hard drive.
  • Repartition: when you repartition hard drive, all the existing partition will be deleted

Why Can Restore Deleted Partition

Normally, when a partition is deleted, the system deletes the assignment to that location on the hard disk, allowing the memory segment to be overwritten as needed. However, as long as this part of the disk remains unchanged, there is still a chance to use the partition recovery utility to undelete partition.

The more times you use your computer, the more likely this part of the hard drive will be overwritten by new data. Therefore, when you find a partition missing, stop using the hard disk immediately. You can instantly restore the lost partition in the assistance of a professional partition recovery program.

Backup in Advance to Avoid Partition Loss

If you want a way to recover partition in a way that won’t delete your newer content, the best approach would be a regular full image backup of your hard drive or external hard drive. Backup in advance is the most effective way to recover deleted partition. You can even just enabling the File History or Windows Backup functionality on your Windows computer to back up files automatically.
