File Recovery from Damaged Hard Drive Partition

A computer hard drive can be divided into logically separate data areas called partitions. By partitioning your hard drive you can store directories and files of different categories in different partitions.  Partitioning improves the overall performance of your systems as you can keep operating system files, frequently used programs and user data near to each other. Partitioning allows dual boot setups i.e. you can have more than one operating system on a computer.  You can customize the partitions according to the different requirements. By partitioning you can also protect and isolate the files on one partition from the other.

But sometimes a partition gets damaged and the drive is unreadable causing a huge data loss to the user. Imagine there are four partitions C, D, E, F in your computer, if one of them got damaged, you will see the partition is still there, yet, you can't get access to it.  In logical damage the partition becomes unreadable i.e. data contained in the partition becomes inaccessible, lost or corrupted due to damage caused to the partition table or file system. Partition Recovery Software is one of the best recovery software well designed with advanced and powerful algorithms that can be used to recover damaged partitions.

Primary causes for a damaged partition are accidental formatting of hard disk, drive crash, bad sectors, backup failure, virus attack, boot and partition structure corruption, power outages etc.

Some of the causes for partition damage are explained below -

  • Virus attack:   Virus attack is one of the main causes of partition damage. If the virus or malware infects the file system of the partition, all the files and folders become inaccessible. 
  • Improper operation: Improper operation performed on the hard drive partition also results in damaged partition. If the process of partitioning, merging or resizing gets interrupted due to power failure the partition gets damaged.
