Basics of recovery partition
In recovery partition, a total backup of the original condition of the computer configured by the manufacturer can be done. The hard drive of a system is not often used as a single drive; instead the entire storage space of the hard drive is split among the multiple drives in the system. Recovery partition gives an option for the user to bring the data back in case of a deletion of data in the hard drive accidently.
Causes of the Corruption
Most of the information including the number and location of the volumes (different drives in a hard drive) in a physical disk are held and maintained by Master Boot Record. Damage in the Master Boot Record can sometimes result in the loss of partition. There are greater chances of losing the partition with an entire replacement or reformatting of the hard drive. It is always better to make copies of the data in different optical storage mediums like CDs and DVDs for its fast recovery.
The partitions in a system get corrupted for so many reasons. As a result, some volumes may also disappear from the hard drive leading to an excessive loss of data. If we are provided with an NTFS file system in the drive, it is easy to find the partitions that are being lost using the method of scanning. The user can do this with the help of NTFS data recovery Software. A ZAR data recovery software also help in finding the lost partitions.
