Cloning data of hard drive is a good way to protect data security. We can use backups to restore source data to avoid losses caused by data loss. Most users relay on drive cloning software to realize cloning drive. However, the situations of drive loss or drive being unable to access happen a lot.
In fact, drive loss and drive being unable to access are common situations while we are using drive cloning software, because most kinds of drive cloning software are downloaded from Internet for free. These kinds of free drive cloning software are always with serious security problems. When performing cloning operation to drive, they may damage partition table information, causing drive loss or drive accessing failure. That will result in large amount of data loss and terrible damage. It is strongly suggested to select one good qualified drive cloning software to clone drive. Fortunately, as to the already-happened situation of partition damage, we can still relay on data recovery software like MiniTool Power Data Recovery to recover lost data from damaged partition or lost partition.

Partition damage and partition loss are two different situations of data loss. Generally, partition damage finds expression in that partition is unable to access. When we click on the partition, system will prompt that we need to format the partition. Encountering this situation, we should recover lost data before formatting. Thus we can recover lost data to the greatest extent. Partition loss is mainly shown in that partition cannot be found in disk management interface. To these two different situations, MiniTool Power Data Recovery has different solutions. Let's see how MiniTool Power Data Recovery deals with these two problems:
