Hard Drive Partition Recovery: Restore RAW Partition

I've spent several days working on a project from a hard drive. Now I realize more than one might be better... All files now vanish. Is there any free recovery software available? Is this the appropriate tool to use? Any suggestions?

Yes, even if you don't have a backup, free recovery software can assist you to recover deleted files from the hard drive.  Data loss is a frustrating event common when you accidentally delete and format your hard drive or your PC experiences a system crash.

EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard is a free data recovery program that has assisted millions of people in recovering their valuable data. Whether you erased files from a disk, formatted the disk, lost partitions, or the disk became RAW, inaccessible, or unrecognized, this hard disk recovery software can recover your files.

You can also try manual HDD recovery fixes to repair logical disk errors to recover your files. If you notice any of the following signs on your computer drive, it signifies you have a logical error:

  • You received the error notice, "you must format the disk on drive X before using it."
  • Because your hard drive has a RAW file system, it becomes inaccessible.
  • In Windows, the hard disk does not show any files.

When your hard drive becomes RAW or inaccessible, you can format it and change the file system to NTFS to accomplish RAW external hard drive recovery. However, because this procedure may result in data loss, we recommend you first utilize hard drive recovery software.

Then you can begin with the instructions below:

Step 1. Select "Manage" from the context menu of This PC or My Computer.

Step 2. Select "Disk Management" from the Computer Management menu.

Step 3. Right-click on the RAW hard disk and select "Format Volume".

Step 4. Reset the Volume label, change the File system to NTFS, and check the "Perform a fast format" box.

All in all, when it comes to hard drive data recovery software, you can Google it and find various programs given by various manufacturers. It should be noted that some free data recovery tools created by professional data recovery service providers can also assist in freeing a limited number of your hard disk files. If you need one, you can use EaseUS free data recovery software.

Use EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard to recover deleted or lost files easily and quickly.
