How to Restore Deleted Partition in Windows?

Mistakenly deleting a partition that contains important files can be frustrating, but you’re not the only one it has happened to. Many people have mistakenly deleted their disk’s partition – even the bootable partition – and still got back the partition (with the files intact) by using a Partition Recovery software.

Partition loss or data loss happens to everyone; even if you’re too careful not to delete the partitions yourself, the system may be attacked by a virus or malware, and you’d end up losing your files and partitions. Aside from malware and accidental deletion, OS crashes, power surges, software updates, and other scenarios/actions can lead to data/partition loss.

So, the main thing is to have a reliable software tool you can fall back on when you get hit with such scenarios described above. This article acts as a guide to recovering your lost partitions on any hard drive using DiskInternals Partition Recovery.

Step 1: Select the Hard Disk with Deleted Partitions

First, you have to download and install the DiskInternals Partition Recovery software. After the installation, launch the program and follow the Recovery Wizard, which will launch automatically.

1. Download The App

Select the hard drive that contains the partition(s) you lost; DiskInternals Partition Recovery supports HDD, SSD, flash drive, external hard drive, memory cards, IDE disk, SATA disk, SCSI disk, etc.

2. Launch The App

DiskInternals Partition Recovery supports FAT, ReFS, UFS; HFS, NTFS, ReiserFS, APFS(reader mode), RomFS(reader mode); Reiser4, XFS, Ext2, Ext3, and Ext4 file system formats, making it one of the best Partition Recovery software tools for Windows OS (11, 10,8.1, 8, 7 and XP) computer users. Furthermore, the software lets you preview various file formats for free.

Step 2: Select Dive and “Scan” for Lost Partitions

When you have selected the hard drive that contains the partition you lost, simply choose “Recovery Mode.” This software supports three recovery modes: Full Recovery, Fast Recovery, and Reader mode. If the partition has been long deleted, which means it may have been overwritten with new data, use the Full Recovery mode.

3. Choose a Recovery Mode

In Full scanning mode, DiskInternals Partition Recovery searches every part of your disk and recovers every data that has been lost from the drive. This mode also automatically repairs file structures and bypasses Windows security options to ensure that you recover the partition/data you seek.

Fast recovery mode is also efficient, but it may not discover all your lost partitions and files. It is advisable to use this mode only if you’re in haste and the files/partition you want to recover haven’t been lost for a long time.

Reader mode is used to access and open drives that won’t naturally open on Windows File Explorer (e.g., EXT drives from Linux systems or macOS disks).

Step 3: Preview and Restore Your Partitions

If you chose the Full Recovery mode, the scan might take a longer time to complete – you can cancel it at any time if you can’t wait longer, but it’s advisable to let it run completely before proceeding.

After the scan is complete, you will see all your lost partitions; you can open them to view the files saved inside. Other recovered files would be marked with red asterisks – so you can easily differentiate between lost/recovered files and existing documents on your drive.

4. Preview The Partition

The good thing is that DiskInternals Partition Recovery lets you preview virtually all recovered files for FREE. So, you can preview and confirm that you have recovered your files and partitions before proceeding to save them back to the system. To actually resave your lost partitions and files, you will need to buy the license.

Conclusion

Partitions help segregate storage media, so you can store different file formats separately for easy access or specific reasons. Getting back deleted partitions is pretty easy and fast when you use an intuitive, professional software with up to 99 percent efficiency in partition recovery. So, partition loss isn’t something to throw you off balance; you can always get back everything and regain access to your important files.
