SATA drive is a device which is extensively used in desktops, laptops and embedded applications to store files and folders. It provides high data rate transfer, reliability, reduced cable size and many more features. However like other drives, SATA drives too don’t give any assurance against data loss. At times, when you try to access SATA drives an error message may pop up on your screen stating “Do you need to format E: before you can use it? Do you want to format it?”
This error message indicates that your drive is corrupted due to some unpredictable reasons. Unless you click on Format Disk option, you cannot access the drive. But the saddest part is that if you click format disk option then data stored in the drive will get completely erased.
Is this the only scenario that can cause data loss in SATA drives?
No!!! Apart from error messages, you might also face data loss situation due to other various reasons like accidentally formatting SATA drive, deleting files unknowingly, improper file system conversion, errors occurred while partitioning process and many others.
Now what can be done? Is it possible to recover data from SATA disk?
