How To Recover Lost Hard Drive Partition

Hard disk partition loss

When a hard disk partition cannot be seen in Windows Disk Management, it means that the partition has been lost and the data stored on it becomes inaccessible.

How To Recover Lost Hard Drive

Hard disk partition loss may be caused by reinstallation of the operating system, accidental deletion, improper operation or virus infection. Fortunately.

However most of the partition loss problems are caused by the damaged partition table. The partition table is a type of file system that contains important information about hard disk partitions, such as name, size, etc. 

It is an urgent task to recover the lost partition. But don’t worry, in this article we talk about step-by-step instructions for restoring data from a lost or missing hard drive partition with EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard data recovery software.

Note: After the partition has been lost, please stop creating new partition in the unallocated space and write new data to the hard disk.

Otherwise, these operations will cause the data to be overwritten, so you cannot recover the entire information from the lost partition.

Why can we recover the lost hard drive partition?

The partition table decides whether a partition can be recognized by the system. If it is destroyed by viruses or accidentally deleted, you will not see the partition in Windows Disk Management.

But, in reality, the data is still there, so the partitions are not really lost. If the partition table is not severely damaged, you can try the EaseUS Partition Master partition manager to recover lost partitions.

But if it is badly damaged, in this case a data recovery software is needed to find all the important data stored in the lost partitions.
