Two most practical approaches to recover data from deleted partition

Compiled with effective methods, this write up will present two practical approaches to recover deleted partition and recover data from deleted partition as listed below:

A partition in a computer is logical segmentation of the physical storage space on hard drive. Hence when you delete a partition, the files in the allocated space labeled with a drive letter are also deleted.

Partition loss due to deletion is peculiar because the deleted partition data does not end up in Recycle Bin. This indicates that you would need advanced methods to recover erased partition.

 Remo Recover Pro uses a simple descriptive user interface that implements a unique deep scan algorithm to look for deleted files beyond file system and partitions. It takes just 5 simple clicks using Remo partition recovery software to undelete partition data.


What happens to a partition after being deleted?

As soon as you erase a partition, the operating system of the computer removes any information with respect to data placement and addressing of the deleted logical drive.

Hence important information like type of file system, partition size etc are removed from the partition table. Now, since the partition is no longer recognized by the operating system.

Due to the lack of above mentioned information, the partition space is labeled as unallocated. This unallocated space consists of all the partition data and remains that way until a new partition is created with a new file system (reformatted).

Hence you can recover data from deleted partition in Windows 10 as long as the deleted partition is not overwritten by new drive information.

Approach 1:

How to recover deleted partition using Command Prompt?

Although command prompt is quite complex in terms of utilization, it can prove quite effective in order to undelete a partition. Usage of Disk Management is one of the most common practices involved in erasing a partition. As explained above the unallocated space corresponds to all the previously existing data on the partition.

Steps to recover data from deleted partition for free (using CMD):

        • Type in Create and format hard disk partitions in the search box on the task bar and select the option from the suggestions that reads the same.
          create and format partition

      • Now a Disk Management window opens up listing all the logical drives including the deleted partition as unallocated space.
      • Make a note of the partition size named as unallocated.
        unallocated space
      • Now type CMD in the search button and right click on the suggestion as shown below to select Run as Administrator option
        run as admin
      • In the command prompt window type diskpart and hit Enter
        recovering partition using CMD
      • Keep tapping Enter as you type below entered commands in an orderly fashion:
        Type listdisk which populates all the physical disks attached to the computer.Now from the listed disks choose the disk that had the deleted partition using the command select disk x where “x” refers to the number in the list. To find the deleted partition we shall be using the command list volume which will list all the partitions existing on the selected disk. From all the listed volumes find the deleted volume from the list by referring to the size noted down in third step and use the command select volume y (y is the number of the deleted volume listed in the computer). Now to recover partition in Windows we will use the command “assign letter=k” to let Windows 7/10 recognize it so that recovered data from deleted partition can be accessed using file explorer.
      • Lastly close the Command Prompt restart the computer and later use the file explorer to check if the undelete partition process has been successful

Draw backs of recovering deleted partition with the help of CMD:

      • As CMD is a command based tool, performing desired operations for a novice computer user may be challenging.
      • Operations on disk management such as the one above have to be performed with utmost caution as there are very high chances of data loss or OS corruption.
      • The deleted partition is not seen in the system if it has a GPT style boot partition and you will not be able to recover partition using CMD in this case.

Approach 2:

Remo Recover: a safe and easy tool to retrieve data from deleted partition:

Designed with a robust code that can search data existing on hard drive without the help of partition table or file system reference, Remo Recover can easily locate deleted partitions on both external and internal hard drive and list them for recovery.

The software is powerful and an integrated solution for data recovery after deleted partition, reformatted partition and re-partitioned drives.

This partition recovery tool lets you filter the recoverable data with the help of file type view or data type view. You can also use Smart Scan, a unique feature that looks for deleted partition data on hard drive sector by sector.

Simple steps to recover data from hard disk after deleting partition:

Step 1: Download and install Remo Recover on the computer from which you have deleted the partition

Step 2: Select “Recover Drives” from the main screen

Step 3: From the next screen choose “Partition Recovery” to recover deleted partition from PC

Step 4: Select the storage device or disk from the list and click on the arrow at right bottom to proceed

Step 5: After scanning, click on each item to check partition size as shown below and find the deleted partition using information acquired in step 2 of approach 1, click the next arrow
recovered deleted partition

Step 6: In the next screen you can either choose the file types you wish to recover or skip

Step 7: Lastly the recovered data from deleted partition is listed in the form of files, choose Smart Scan if you need a deeper scan or mark the files you wish to recover and save them to a location by browsing the hard drive location.
