Partition recovery is very possible, and it’s very simple too. There are now efficient data recovery tools at your disposal, not just cheap copies. Think of the data recovery tool as a trump card when all else fails, but you might not even need to use data recovery software just yet. Have a read of the solutions below. If the first one works for you, problem solved!
How to Recover Lost/Deleted Partition Data
There are several methods you can use but the 2 best ones will be highlighted today: Command Prompt and data recovery software.
Solution 1: CMD
It’s possible the problem stemmed from the loss of your drive’s letter, the loss of volume label or the loss of partition name. A simple way out of this is to use Command Prompt to assign a drive letter to the partition so you’ll see it again in Explorer.
- Press “Windows” + “R” and type “ms” in the Run window.
- Press “Enter” and you’ll see “Disk Management”.
- Look for the section marked “Unallocated” because that’s where the deleted partition is.
- Press the “Windows” key and type “CMD”, then click on the “Command Prompt” app.
- Type “diskpart” in the Command Prompt window and press “Enter”.
- Type “list disk” and press “Enter” again. A list of the disks connected to your system will be revealed.
- Type “select disk #” in Command Prompt and hit “Enter” again, but replace # with the number of the drive that has the deleted or lost partition.
- Type “list volume” and press “Enter”, then type “select volume #” and hit “Enter” again. Once more, replace # with the number of deleted or lost partition.
- For the last step, type “assign letter = #” and press the “Enter” key. Yet again, replace # with any drive letter you choose. Exit the Command Prompt window and check whether you can now access your lost partition. Your files should all be there again.
