I don’t know what caused this problem. Please help me with valuable suggestions to get back data from my computer’s file system. Thanks a lot…”

You may get struck in situation as described above; this may happen because of not using the computer in a proper way from the beginning. Sometimes even after taking lot of precautionary measures to maintain data on computer, you will face such data loss problems. The file system data on a drive may get damaged and such drive will not get recognized by Windows OS; this results in error message upon trying to access data from it. Apart from error message, there are many other circumstances in which file system data will be lost as given below:

  • RAW File System: Sometimes file system on partition will not get detected by operating system and remains in RAW state; this happens when file system is corrupted due to viruses, system file conflicts, abrupt system shutdown and other causes
  • Partition Deletion: You can delete a partition on computer to get free space and while deleting, you may select a wrong partition and lose important data from its file system
  • Formatting Partition: Formatting partition on your computer to get rid of viruses, formatting errors and other issues will erase complete data from selected partition’s file system
  • Changing File System: It is nothing but reformatting drive to have new file system on computer. In case file system is changed without taking backup of files, then files on previous file system will not be accessible by the operating system
