What are the Causes of Inaccessible Partitions?

1) Damaged partition table:

The important component of a hard drive is the partition table and it is used by the drive to display the available partition to the user in file explorer. In case the partition table is damaged or lost due to a virus attack, power shortage, and any other reason, then the partition is lost and you won’t be able to access it.

2) Improper disk management:

While creating a new partition or resizing an existing partition, there are possibilities of deleting the existing partition and inaccessible data is the outcome. Now the deleted partition turns out to be unallocated space and there are few chances of data recovery.

3) Hard drive bad sector:

Improper read and write process affects the sectors of the hard drive. If a sector gets affected then it is termed as a bad sector. Whenever a bad sector exists in a hard drive, there are possibilities of certain file loss or even a partition loss.

But the major drawback is that not all files and folders of the hard disk might not be selected for backup. In that case, we insist you choose Remo Recover Windows/Mac –Pro to restore pictures from deleted partitions.
