Data Recovery from GUID Partition

GPT refers GUID Partition Table, which is a standard outline for hard drive partitioning that is used in Windows, Mac and UNIX operating systems. This hard drive partitioning mechanism is a successor to MBR and APM partitioning techniques. Also, GUID partition scheme allows unlimited number of partitions; the limit will be 128 partitions. Thereby it is not necessary to create an extended partition if required.

However, similar to hard drive maintained by MBR scheme, even HDD containing GUID partition table can undergo data loss issues. Even though it offers flexible layout for partitioning Windows system hard drive, users often may face data loss situations because of various blunders or logical errors. Primarily, accidental deletion of files from GUID partition or unintentionally formatting GUID partition can leads to deletion of files on Windows system. Other than these reasons, harmful virus or malware attacks on GUID partition table, file system corruption on GUID partition, hard drive crash, abnormal system reboot as a results of sudden system shutdown and many more aspects severely corrupt GUID partition, which indeed makes Windows hard drive inaccessible and causes data loss.
