Perfect Tool to Restore Computer Hard Disk Data

The hard drive offers a larger space to store huge amount of data on the computer system. System hard drive data get deleted or inaccessible due to several factors. In the worst-case scenario, you might find a blank screen when you turn on the system. The PC hard drive stops working and you are no longer able to access any data stored on that drive. A little awareness can avoid a big loss of essential data. Nonetheless, there are many instances where you might lose the system drive data even after taking certain precautions.

What causes data loss from the PC drive?

  • Accidental formatting of the system drive leads to complete data loss
  • Erroneous partitioning and repartitioning during installation/reinstallation of the Windows operating system
  • Virus infection and other malicious threats lead to format errors
  • MBR corruption, damaged file system or boot sectors
  • Interrupted file transfers, OS crashes, and software conflicts

All these above-stated instances will lead to loss of essential files like valuable documents, images, audio, videos, and so on. But the data on the drive will not be permanently deleted by any of the pre-mentioned reasons. The files on the drive reside in the same location until they are overwritten. So, do not proceed to use the drive further for write operations. It is because adding new files to the drive will lead to loss of the data that you are looking to retrieve.
