Recover the data of your hard drive lost due to boot errors.
A virus, an electrical failure, or even an accidental deletion of our system's partition table can cause damage on our hard drives
, affecting the information that they contain. In these cases, some of the files that we have stored can be irretrievable, but in other cases it is possible to rescue
part of the information if we use the proper tool, like TestDisk
is a free
application designed to recover data from hard drives where the boot sector
has been damaged or partitions have been accidentally deleted.
Thus, TestDisk is capable of reconstructing the Boot Sector of FAT12, FAT16, FAT32 and NTFS systems
, restoring partition tables, recovering deleted files, etc. To do so, it follows the following steps:
1. Launches the application.
2. Select the storage device
that you want to restore.
3. Indicate the kind of partition table
: Intel, EFI GPT, Mac, Sun, XBox,...
4. Choose one of the options that the application offers, depending on what you need.
What's more, together with TestDisk
you will find PhotoRec
, a tool that is specialized in recovering images
from the memory cards of digital cameras, even though it can also be used to recover videos, documents and files from hard drives and CD-ROMs.
