Partition Recovery by DiskInternals

An expert at recovering lost partitions

DiskInternals Partition Recovery is an advanced software tool, which is intended for all users, who need to recover some data or lost partitions. You deleted a file or your boot record, master boot record or partitions are damaged? You are at a loss for solutions here? This program will be a magic wand to make the whole situation go your way.

Why do partitions become deleted or lost?

There are many reasons for the loss of a partition (logical disk). Some of them are common, but some are not. Usually, to recover a partition, it is important to know the reasons the loss happened. For a better understanding of the situation and to avoid it in the future, here are the most common situations that may lead to the loss of a partition.

  • Accidental deletion. Unfortunately, this is a common mistake even for professionals, because the human factor is present in almost all cases.
  • Due to bad sectors, the operating system may stop recognizing a partition.
  • Damage to the partition table by a virus, other malware, or an incorrect operation on the disk, can lead to a lost partition.
  • Power outages cause power surges, with the result that the whole hard drive, with all its partitions, may be damaged.

Perhaps you will be a little surprised, but recovering a deleted partition in all these cases is quite realistic; unless, of course, you take the responsible approach with the choice of partition recovery software.

Tips for recovering deleted partitions

If, for some reason, a partition is deleted, then you need to keep in mind that the data from the partition is actually still on the logical disk for some time, but it is not accessible for reading.

Therefore, the most important advice is: do not create, add, delete, or copy the partition in the same drive where the data was deleted. This will overwrite it with the new information, and all your previous files will be deleted forever.

However, there are situations when, due to circumstances, you can’t use a computer for a long time. In this case, do not try to restore a partition. Time is not on your side. The sooner you start partition recovery, the more successful the result will be.

Now, it's time to choose good and reliable partition recovery software.

  • Reiser4, XFS, Ext2, Ext3, and Ext4.

DiskInternals Partition Recovery has three disk recovery wizard scanning modes:

  • Fast scanning (Uneraser).

This scanning, as you may guess from its name, will take less time. During fast scanning, DiskInternals Partition Recovery finds files from the deleted partition that are lying “on the surface”. There is no deep scanning or rebuilding of the file system on the logical disk.

  • Full scanning (Full recovery).

This is a deep scan of every disk sector for retrievable data. It never misses anything that can be restored. It also rebuilds the file system on the lost partition (only in the software; in reality, the file system stays the same) and that gives you the chance to restore all of the lost or deleted files. Accordingly, it will take more time, but the result will be better.

  • Reader mode.

This means that you can open disks in File Explorer. This is very useful if you need to open an unreadable disk, or if the internal or external disk is from a computer with Mac OS or Linux.

A great feature of Partition Recovery is previewing files. Even with a trial version, you have the ability to preview your files before restoring them. That gives you a chance to appreciate the software’s work before purchasing a license. No rescan and no reinstall required!
