“Last weekend, I got one project from school. So, I thought of adding few pictures on it. After hard work of 3-4 days, I got few pictures; I saved them in one of the logical drive and started to work on project content. Afterwards, when all the content work got completed, I accessed the drive to add those pictures, but got an error stating “Drive X:\ is not accessible. The volume does not contain a recognized file system”. I have never faced such situation before, so i asked some of my friends and they have told me that, it all happens because those photos are saved on same partition that has turned into RAW. Now, I am in terrible situation because, neither I can start finding pictures again nor I can delay in submission. So, if you know any solution by which I can recover photos from raw disk, please suggest me.”
RAW is a state, where OS fails to recognize file system of hard disk, so all data present on that particular drive automatically becomes unreadable. If you have doubt on your logical drive being RAW, you can check it. Select that disk, do right-click on it and choose Properties. Here, check for ‘file system’ and ‘used space’. if the file system of disk mentioned as RAW and shows entire disk as free space, it means your doubt is correct.
However, even after getting RAW hard disk, you still have chances to recover its data. All you need to do is, download Yodot Photo Recovery tool on your system.
