How to restore files from lost partition?

The computer may be infected with viruses by accident in daily computer use. It may get computer partition lost and a lot of data files are lost at the same time, which bring us plenty of inconvenience. The accessory viruses may attack our computers when we install some software, which probably causes partition loss. We could restore files in lost partition with some professional data recovery software. However, we should know something about data recovery software before we restore files.

Data recovery principle
Why could we restore files? We should know knowledge of data storage principle. Hard disk is composed of a group of disks with magnetic coating. The basic unit storing data is sector and data read-write is realized through disk and head movement. The first sector records partition number, every partition size and starting location and it is also called master boot record (MBR). When MBR is destroyed because of bad tracks, viruses or incorrect operations, the partition is partly or completely lost. However, we could recount the partition size and location and record them in partition information table manually according to the data information features, which help us restore files.

Notes for data recovery
