Recover lost partition

Data Recovery Pro is designed to recover lost data due to lost partition or damaged logical drives, virus infection, software crash, unexpected shutdown and other unknown reasons. It effectively performs missing or lost partition recovery.

Step-by-step Instruction for deleted or Lost Partition Recovery:

Step 1. Select Object->Open drive.

Step 2. Select 'Physical drive' tab and choose the physical drive (e.g. hard disk) containing the unrecognized drive. The 'Logical drive' tab will not display any lost drives to be recovered.

Note: If the partition containing the windows operating system is lost, you need to remove the hard disk from your computer and connect it as a secondary drive and test run our Data Recovery Software from the host operating system to recover the lost partition. On the other hand if any other partition containing the data is lost, you can install the software on another healthy partition and perform the partition recovery.

If the hard disk was formatted with a another file system, please continue as described in ""How to recover formatted hard disk"".
