Raw Partition Symptoms

"Raw partition error" doesn't always happen, but exists indeed. It usually occurs with the following symptoms when the disk partition is corrupted or damaged:

  • Invalid media type reading drive. Abort, Retry, Fail?
  • The file system is displayed as RAW.
  • Windows may show "Disk not formatted. Do you want to format now?"
  • File names contain weird characters.
  • "Sector not found" messages.

A partition with the raw file system is inaccessible. That is to say; when you encounter one of the above situations, unfortunately, you can't open the partition as well as the files such as documents, photos, emails, etc. on it. The quickest way to fix this is to format it immediately and use anti-virus software for full anti-virus. However, if you format the RAW partition, it may result in the loss of all the data that has been written all over it. So if the files are important, you can consider using a reliable disk data recovery software to recover the data first, then format it and make it work properly.
