User Query: “I was resizing my hard disk partition using the GParted utility. Unfortunately, my laptop battery ran out, and the process got interrupted. Now, I cannot mount the partition I was trying to resize. When I click to mount the partition in Nautilus, I receive the following error:

"Error mounting: 'Mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sda3. Missing codepage or helper program, or other error'."

How can I regain my data after the failed partition resize? Is there any way to mount the partition back? Any help in recovering my data is sincerely appreciated.”

If you are in the data loss scenario mentioned above, don't worry! Stay calm; fortunately, you can recover your lost data with the assistance of a trusted third-party recovery tool.

Note: Stop using your repartitioned hard drive immediately to avoid overwriting files. When files are lost after resizing a partition, they aren't permanently gone. Instead, they remain intact in the same location but become invisible. These files will persist in the same location until overwritten by new files. If lost files are replaced with new ones after resizing a partition, they become permanently unrecoverable. To increase the chances of data recovery after a partition resize, cease using the drive immediately and employ a reliable and trusted data recovery tool to retrieve your data.

How to Recover Partition After Resize?

Data loss during or after partition resizing typically occurs due to improper or incomplete resizing procedures or unreliable disk utility to shrink or extend partitions. This can result in the deletion, loss, or inaccessibility of the partition you were attempting to resize. If you are in this situation and have lost valuable data, you can recover your data using the Remo Partition Recovery tool.

The tool scans every sector of your hard drive and quickly restores your essential data within minutes. Regardless of the partition's file system, the tool can recover data from FAT32, NTFS, ExFAT, HFS, and HFSX formatted partitions with just a few mouse clicks. Even ExFAT partitions that have been formatted or reformatted can be recovered using Remo Recover.
