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.

  • It won't hot image your drives or align them, but since it's coupled with a partition manager, it allows you do perform many tasks at once, instead of just cloning drives. You can move partitions around, resize them, defragment, and more, along with the other tools you'd expect from a cloning tool.
