How to recover failed logical drive?
A logical drive is a partition in a physical drive that is made to isolate different kind of files from each other like system files from the user’s data. Each partition contains a huge amount of data, so any kind of failure is not bearable or affordable. But there are several reasons due to which your logical drive might fail, leading to loss of large amount of data. They are accidental deletion of some critical system files, unintentional formatting of a drive, corruption caused by improper system shutdown or software conflicts, or logical drive failure due to serious virus infection that has been introduced in the system through internet or some faulty software. The data lost in such situations are said to be permanently erased. But the truth is that only the pointers are removed not the original file.
