What's NTFS/FAT?

After introducing the reliable formatted NTFS partition recovery solution, here we aso talk something about NTFS and FAT partition. You can read on to learn more details if you are interested in this topic.

NTFS, short for New Technology File System, is the standard file system of Windows NT and its descendants Windows 2000, Windows XP and Windows Server 2003. Unlike FAT, NTFS does not use an allocation table but stores information about any file directly with the file. NTFS files or folders that are shared on a network can be accessed by other operating systems. Advantages of NTFS over FAT include faster access to files, more efficient information storage (for example, through a smaller cluster size), better data recovery, integrated file compression, larger disk partitions, and better file security.

FAT, short for File Allocation Table, is a table that the operating system uses to locate files on a disk. Due to fragmentation, a file may be divided into many sections that are scattered around the disk. The FAT keeps track of all these pieces. The FAT volume is divided into four areas: the boot record, the File Allocation Tables, the root directory and the data area.

All the files will get lost when users accidently format the NTFS/FAT drive. If you have preciously backed up the important files, then you can directly restore formatted NTFS/FAT drive from where you backed up them. If not, then you can try the above method to recover the formatted NTFS partition and get back your important data and files with ease.
