Simple methods to recover accidentally deleted Windows partition

December 02, 2011  by: macky leo  Points: 12   Category: Software    Views: 808

Guidelines for recovering the Windows partitions have been mentioned in this article. For windows partition recovery the Disk management snap-in can be used and for XP partition recovery the tool is Recovery Console.

         

With the Disk Management Snap-in tool a user can recover accidentally deleted Windows partitions (NTFS or FAT32 dynamic volume). When a dynamic volume is manually deleted it is the sector 0 of the volume which is actually deleted and the remaining disk and data stays intact. The method here would be to recover the volumes from the backup boot sectors.

Things to remember before windows partition recovery

The Windows partition FAT16 cannot be restored with this method as it does not have a back up boot sector. The RAID-5 volume or dynamic mirror volume also cannot be recovered with this method. For recovering XP partition try the Windows XP Recovery Console.

Steps for restoring the deleted NTFS Volume

The basic approach of this method would be to recreate the NTFS volume without formatting it. For this, one needs to remember the exact size of the volume which has been created originally - while using the Disk Management snap -in.

Use the Dskprobe.exe tool for restoring the backup boot sector of the NTFS volume. Dskprobe.exe tool restores the backup from the remotest corners. For finding the backup boot sector use Dmdiag.exe tool. Close the Dskprobe program after rewriting the NTFS boot sector.

Then Go to the Disk Management options and select the Rescan Disks Tab from the Action menu.

This action would make the NTFS ready for the instant use by mounting it.

Steps for restoring the deleted FAT32 Volume

The basic approach of this method would be to recreate the FAT32 volume without actually formatting it. For this, one needs to remember the exact size of the volume which has been created originally - while using the Disk Management snap -in.

Use the Dskprobe.exe tool for restoring the backup boot sector of the FAT32 volume. Dskprobe.exe tool restores the backup from the remotest corners. For finding the backup boot sector use Dmdiag.exe tool. Close the Dskprobe program after rewriting the FAT32 boot sector.

Then Go to the Disk Management options and select the Rescan Disks Tab from the Action menu.

This action would make the FAT32 ready for the instant use by mounting it.

Windows XP partition recovery

Sometimes the Recovery Console is preinstalled and sometimes it needs to be installed from the Windows XP installation disc. The recovery console can also be set as a startup option in the Windows.

First the user needs to insert the CD and restart the computer then select the start boot option. As soon as the startup begins he would have to select the repair or recover (R) option. After that select the repair or recover option required to start boot from the CD. Enter the recovery commands and enter the Administrator password. For information on any other command Type "commandname" in the help menu.
These are some of the commands available with Recovery consoles:

Attrib: -R, +R,-S, +S, -H, +H, -C, +C

Notes: + Sets an attribute, - Resets an attribute, R Read-only file attribute, S System file attribute, H Hidden file attribute, C Compressed file attribute

BATCH: batch inputfile [outputfile]

BOOTCFG: bootcfg /redirect com1 115200, bootcfg /redirect useBiosSettings

Using XP partition recovery console is not a cake walk and it requires a lot of expertise. For performing easy windows partition recovery from all the damages and corruptions use the Kernel for Recover Lost Partition Tool.
