In this post, you are going to learn how to perform lost partition recovery with reliable partition recovery software - EaseUS Partition Master. Besides, you are going to learn how to recover deleted partition with TestDisk.

Common Causes of Lost/Deleted Partitions

It is annoying if your drive D: or drive E: gets lost due to unexpected errors or accidental deletion. There are a few factors that could cause lost or deleted partitions, including:

Accidental deletion: This is the most common reason. Any one of us could delete a partition that you need by mistake.

Data corruption: An unexpected data corruption could cause damages to the partition table, which can lead to a lost partition. 

Bad sectors: Your Windows operating system may stop recognizing a partition due to bad sectors.

Power outages: A sudden power surge or power failure can affect the drive’s operations that can make a partition inaccessible.

Fortunately, you can recover a deleted partition if you act quickly after the deletion or other causes. To make things easier, you need EaseUS partition recovery software.
