Overview of Partition Recovery

Partition recovery is the process of retrieving partitions that were accidentally deleted or lost due to power failure, partition error, corrupted partition table, or other issues and restoring them to their original state. It allows you to regain access to the lost partition and its data, provided that they are both accessible before the accident.

Recover lost partitions

Before recovering the lost partition, you can preview its current status and see how likely it is to be recovered and whether it needs extra repair to be accessible. Look at the "Recoverable state" column, and you'll find the following statuses:

Very good: The partition has at least a 90% recovery rate. It has relatively complete partition information and can be accessed right after recovery.

Good: The partition's recovery rate is around 60-70%. It has incomplete partition information and needs to be repaired after recovery.

Not good: The partition has a recovery rate of at most 50%. It has incomplete partition information and the likelihood of it being repaired after recovery is low.

Step 6: Check the recovered partition data.

If the restored partition is inaccessible to the system and appears as a RAW partition in Disk Management, use the advanced "Partition Recovery" module in iBoysoft Data Recovery for Windows to repair it.
