Software to Retrieve Data on Windows

Windows is the globally used Microsoft operating system on desktops, laptops and even on Tablet. Users hoard numerous personal data on Windows computers and when such data becomes futile it is more than a disaster. Consider a real time scenario here:

Assume that you installed a defragmentation tool on your system and after running the program you just dismissed it before completion. Later, system started to hang for every couple of continuous hours and now it completely froze. This kind of situation can bring forth inaccessibility of data present on windows computer drive. Apart from this, some of the other possible scenarios of losing data from Windows computer can be elaborated below:

  • Unexpectedly deleting a partition on Windows system hard drive while performing any other tasks in Disk Management utility
  • File system corruption on Windows HDD can make the drive RAW or induce various error messages like Format error that leads to complete inaccessibility of data saved in drive
  • Presence of outdated antivirus program can make path for entry of harmful viruses from internet or from infected external storage devices, that can result in corruption of Partition Table, Boot sector or other critical sections on hard drive, which will cause huge data loss
  • Picking up wrong partition to format / reformat instead of required partition or any external drive connected to Windows system, will wipe off all data from such Windows partition
  • Performing incorrect OS reinstallation, wrong Windows OS update or other software conflicts can corrupt hard drive on Windows PC leading to data loss
  • Pilling up of bad sectors on Windows system, conflicts of applications installed on hard drive, etc, can result to frequent hanging of Windows system and eventually hard drive failure

When data become out of user reach in any of these scenarios, one may think that data is lost forever. But, in particular data is just inaccessible from the Windows system hard drive and is still intact with the same memory location. So, immediate use of reliable data recovery software for Windows can save data from such disasters.
