The NTFS file system has recently become the main trend for its various advantages. This article will talk about NTFS and NTFS partition recovery.
What is NTFS
NTFS (short for 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.
NTFS supersedes the FAT file system as the preferred file system for Microsoft's Windows operating systems. NTFS has several improvements over FAT and HPFS (High-Performance File System) such as improved support for metadata and the use of advanced data structures to improve performance, reliability, and disk space utilization, plus additional extensions such as security access control lists (ACL) and file system journaling.
Why do we need NTFS partition recovery
If you accidentally format your partition, or if there is a corrupted or damaged NTFS partition, you will not be able to access the files on that NTFS partition. In these situations, data recovery software can help you recover lost files from the partitions. A computer system or hard disk often shows the following errors to notify you of the damaged partition:
- Operating System not found
- Invalid partition table
- The file system is displayed as RAW
- Drive not formatted. Do you want to format now?
- Cannot find file or program
- Invalid command.com
- Non-system disk
- File names contain "weird" characters.
- "Sector not found" messages.
If you accidentally format your NTFS or NTFS5 partition or your NTFS partition gets damaged or you cannot access your NTFS partition, then don't panic! Reliable NTFS data recovery software - EaseUS Partition Recovery can easily restore data from an NTFS partition and undelete files from a formatted, deleted, damaged or lost NTFS partition.
