“I am in big trouble because I did a foolish mistake that I used the clean command of diskpart on my hard disk. (I wanted to do it on a USB drive). Now when I open the hard drive, it shows only one partition instead of two. I had ALL my important files on it. Actually what I did was:

Start-> typed cmd -> diskpart -> select disk 1-> clean (without any parameters)

This had deleted my partition containing important files. What can be done to get my partition data back? Is it possible to recover partition after diskpart clean?? Please help, thank you!!!”

Even if you have done such or similar blunder and lost your partition then you don’t have to worry! This is because; you can get your entire lost partition along with your data back in just few minutes by utilizing perfect recovery software. Before going to the details of recovery let’s understand in-brief about DiskPart.

What is DiskPart utility?

DiskPart is a command-line utility used to create, delete, resize or manipulate the partitions on your hard drive, external hard drives, and USB Flash drives etc. on your Microsoft Windows systems. It can also be used for allocating or reallocating drive letters and even for performing disk conversions (basic to dynamic and vice versa). It contains many commands to perform actions on partitions like CREATE, ADD, CONVERT, RESCAN etc.

Likewise, DiskPart even offers CLEAN command that removes all or any of your partition on your HDD with focus. Its syntax is:

DISKPART> Clean [all]

All attribute in the command specifies that each and every sector on your hard disk should be zeroed, in turn deleting all your data completely present on the disk.

Hence, before using this command be careful and ensure you have backup of your entire data. However, even if you lose your partition it is temporary, your partition and the data will all still reside on your hard drive. You can recover them back with the help of Remo Recover (Windows) Software. Yes!!!
