Recovering Lost Data from Hard Drives

Recover drive data after MFT corruption on Windows

Hard disk drives serve as the best mass storage devices on every computer including laptops, desktops, etc. The inbuilt hard disk drives are known as internal drives or system drives as well as the hard drives we use through USB port connection are called external hard drives or removable drives. Every one of these drives should be partitioned i.e. dividing the entire memory space into separate isolated sectors called Partitions. Because of partitioning the difficult drive, system performance and hard disk performance will boost up to a greater extent.

Assume an instance that the system hard drive of your PC was affected by harmful malware. This spyware had affected your data files on hard disk very intensively such that the Master File Table of a NTFS partition went completely corrupt causing data inaccessibility on that partition. Master File table or MFT, a file which holds entire details of the files stored in this partition. It holds everything of a file including its size, creation and also modified starting time and date, permissions to get into or alter its content as well as the data content. Hence when the MFT file is corrupt you will be unable to access data from hard drives. And if you are desperate to get back lost files after MFT corruption in Windows then make use of hard drive recovery software.

  • Software conflicts – When the main system is having certain issues like improper booting in the system, automatic shut down with the system, etc. then frequently the Windows system might crash that could cause MFT file corruption. So because of this may very well not be capable of access data from that NTFS partition.
  • Hard drive formatting / reformatting – Format and reformat of computer drives will erase the entire book keeping information of each and every file making the files invisible to the OS. Thus accidental drive format causes data loss.
