Undelete Partition on Windows XP

Often we find a single partition present on most of the Windows XP computers, which stores all data including the OS and other user files. But many users prefer create multiple partitions on their hard drive so that data can be stored in an ordered way. However, it so happens that the partitions on Windows XP get accidentally deleted which wipes out every bit of information saved on them. Windows XP system users are always obsessed with the recovery of data from partitions that got accidentally deleted.

Some of the reasons that lead to the deletion of partition from Windows XP:

  • OS Reinstallation: Windows XP OS needs to be re-installed when system crashes or fails to boot OS normally due to some logical failures. Less knowledge about the OS re-installation process can cause huge data loss as the user may accidentally delete the partition which removes all the information that was saved in it
  • Partitioning Process: Use of incompatible third party applications for partitions process or incorrect way of re-partitioning hard drive on Windows XP system can sometimes result in huge loss of information as the tool deletes the partitions without the user’s confirmation
  • Inaccessible Partition: Due to virus infection the file system of the partition or entire hard drive gets corrupted and the only way out is to delete or format the partition, which in turn deletes all files

Other than these, there are many scenarios that cause deletion of partition from the Windows XP computer. But, no need to worry! This is not the permanent loss of data, as only the index information of data is removed from file allocation table. So, data still remains in the same place where it was saved prior to partition deletion and you can restore it with the help of suitable partition recovery tool.
