If the operating system of your PC is giving you problems, be prepared for some unpleasant surprises. One such surprise can simply turn you crazy. You may, one day, wake up to find one of the partitions of your Western Digital Caviar Black 500GB HDD missing. Try however much; you just won’t be able to trace it. Along with the partition, you stand to lose all your files. If you happen to face a situation like this, don’t lose your calm. Your partition may not be visible, but it is still there in the system. All that you need to do is retrieve and restore it.

Your Western Digital Caviar Black 500GB HDD comes with cutting edge technology, SATA 3 Gb/s or 6 Gb/s interface, and up to 64 MB cache. This precisely accounts for its high performance and high capacity. But all these features simply cannot prevent the HDD from losing a NTFS or FAT32 partition to a faulty operating system.

A lost partition remains in the hard drive until overwritten. The system is unable to trace it because the Windows or Mac OS cannot read the boot sector information pertaining to the lost partition.  Data recovery software has special in-built algorithms to read this information. Once let loose, the software can fish out the partition from the disk drive.

Remo Recover, an advanced data recovery software, can help to restore data from lost partition in no time. Just download the software, and run the scan through your machine to get back all your data. The software comes with an easy to use interface. After installing the software, click on the Recover Partitions/Drives tab. This will take you to the Partition Recovery and Formatted or Reformatted Recovery tab. A Click on the Partition Recovery tab, gives you the option to select the hard drive. Select the hard drive and click next to initiate the scan. Wait for a fleeting moment, and you soon get your NTFS partition back.
