ASSALAM O ALAIKUM
As data recovery is always being an important issue for advance computer users . Specially who are concern with multimedia field , network analysis , university assignments and many more things i might forget to highlight here . These people are always worried , aware and concious of data lose due to partition crash , unexpected format of there drives due to there precious data . People who are aware even they sometimes get frustrated and do mistakes which reduce the chances of data to be rocover around 1 %. Why this happens ? There can be many reasons i am writing some below
1) Whenever partition crashes many of us go on google and search recovery software . Not knowing in what state the partition crashed .It might crashed in NTFS or FAT . Some people just run NTFS partition recovery and keep trying and atlast with a sigh ! " Oh this program sucks"
No that program is made for its own purpose .
Because the partition you are recovering was FAT not NTFS or has become RAW partition.
2)Even if it was NTFS running a program mostly 90% of recovery softwares dont offer you proper recovery . It will just show you a tree of files and now you have to click by click check the files you have to recover.
3) And if the partition has turned in to RAW how much NTFS recovery or FAT recovery can get your data back ? Here some people thinks omg RAW partition every data gone and the biggest mistake any can do is by formatting the partition to NTFS and now thinks he can recover data .He can but not succesfully.
4) After doing the step 3) mistake they overwrite the effected partition which is true sign of " Goodbye my data"
5) If the step 3) doesnt happened by you then . You might about to do something more worse then it . Guess what ? Yes you are recovering and about to overwrite the recovered data to the partition you are recovering . That is some epic fail Dont do that .
How to prevent these mistakes ?
1) Whenever your partition crashes i.e turns into raw / formatted. Dont never ever Overwrite it just leave the partition on its state .If its turn to Raw there are more chances to recover then NTFS / FAT recovery .
2) If this happen dont just go through google and select any random . You are putting axe on to your own leg by that ( Sorry if the misaal is not good or my english doesnt fits it )
Reason of this guide ?
This week i my self went through this situation unfortunately while doing an experiment i my self crashed a very precious partition for me which contains Data it turned into Raw .
And i was like errrr i was about to send hard disk to claim warranty and this happened anyways i didnt formatted the partition . And used pc for two three days just like i normally do .
While testing flavors of many recovery softwares at this point all famous recovery softwares .
Bla bla bla nothing worked . They suck ? No they dont they are not made to recover data from RAW partition .
Going through many software i found two softwares to be epic for any situation whether you want to recover Raw Or NTFS / FAT .
1) DiskGenius V3.2.1211
2)DDR (Professional) Recovery -
Unfortunately the second one isnt free and you cant either find crack of it you have to buy it even if you find torrent crack for it they contain virus . I downloaded them and every time my antivirus putted them to Virus Chest . Although you can run DDR (Professional) Recovery demo which is free which will only show you the files you can view but wont recover them .
DiskGenius V3.2.1211 :
Seriously i dont know what to write about this epic software it is really made by some genius people.I recovered 30 gb from that single partition and not in files . In Solid Folders and Zero data missing.
You can easily grab it in Hirens boot CD Latest Version . But downloading it will cost you time as it is 300-400 in MB.
Better download the software from google.
