How to recover data from deleted partition?

Data loss can be a huge concern in many cases. One of the severe cases of data loss is a lost partition of a disc. Though most of the data recovery tools can help you recover most of your deleted files or accidental formatting issues, addressing a lost partition may not be possible even with a few sophisticated data recovery tools.

Drive partitioning helps you stay organized. It helps you run your disc smoothly and efficiently. You are able to store and manage your data more efficiently with a proper drive partition. What will happen if you lose your valuable data because of a data partition loss? In fact, a lost partition is much difficult to recover in many cases. When compared to the normal data loss issues, it can be quite complicated to recover a deleted partition. When a drive partition is lost, all the data contained therein is lost along with it. If you are attempting to recover your lost partition, never ever attempt to create a new partition before completing the recovery process because that may just make your data permanently non-recoverable.

If you want to stay safe from being affected by lost partitions, it is practical to know the reasons that can cause partition loss. This can not only help you avoid lost partitions, but will also let you find your ways for partition recovery.
Here are a few reasons that may cause lost partitions -

Loss of partition table

The partition table is a utility that shows the partition and its content to the users. Thought it can be quite useful, it is also susceptible to corruption. In case it goes corrupt, your partition will become invisible from the partition list. The partition table contains valuable information about the partition including the start point and end point of hard disk drive partition, file system, name, size and a host of other important details.

Bad sectors or clusters

bad sectors
The hard drive is divided into tracks which are further divided into sectors. If any of the sectors are unable to read or write, it is referred to as a bad sector. It will normally be skipped during a read or write operation. If a partition contains a large number of bad sectors, you will end up with a lost partition.

Accidental partition deletion

Human mistakes tend to be unpredictable and this applies to managing your drives, partitions and in some cases an entire volume. You may have deleted an entire partition while in fact, you wanted to delete a folder or file. In some cases, you or someone else using your computer might delete a volume by error.

Partition resizing errors

However, it should be understood that partition resizing is a risky and complicated process and needs you to have a sound technical knowledge for the same. A sudden interruption to the procedure can cause the partition to be lost. If you do not have enough knowledge in handling it, never do it. The best way to do is to use a professional disk partitioning tool.

Power Failures

A sudden power failure or spikes in power can cause an issue. This can also affect the performance of the drive. This can also make the partition inaccessible in many cases.
