Hard drives are the best used storage devices to store multiple data on desktops, laptops and other electronic gadgets. Hard drive on a computer stores all its data including many program files responsible for system performance. Usually the hard disks will be partitioned into separate sectors in order to boost the drive performance. These hard drive sectors are called Partitions / Volumes. Partitions are always independent of each other and operate similar to operating system.
Data stored in one partition of a hard drive will not be affected by other partitions. However one can easily lose data from hard drive partitions as a result of numerous reasons. Most common among them is drive formatting. Formatting process initializes the memory space of the drive by erasing all the registry file entries of the data saved on that drive / partition.
Here is one scenario in which data from the hard drive might get lost. Recently one of the partitions in my desktop drive was corrupt and whenever I tried to open the files saved under that partition an error message used to pop up. It stating like this, ‘The partition X is not formatted. Format it now.’ So I was left with only one option i.e. to format the partition. But while trying to format that partition, I unfortunately formatted the other partition in which I had saved very important files. As I had no backup of those data, I lost those crucial files from the drive partition. Such kind of data loss from drives and partitions can be handled if recovery software is at your finger tips.
Certain scenarios which users encounter and lose data from drives are mentioned below:
- Formatting the drive without backup – Accidental formatting drive will make one to lose data only when the user does not possess any backup
- Formatting during reinstallation of OS – There are certain times during reinstallation of operating system, when the process asks to format certain partition and without conducting this action the installation process will not precede which in turn leads to data loss
- Viruses – Viruses are the most common reason behind formatting any drive. When the drive / its partition are affected by harmful viruses, the data on that drive will become inaccessible. And in order to reuse the drive, it has to be formatted which results in data loss
