About “Damaged Partition Recovery

This module is designed to recover files from existing partition, such as logically damaged partition, reformatted partition, drive displayed as raw and Windows asks - “Do you want to format this drive?”.

How to Do Damaged Partition Recovery in Specified Module

1.You will see a list of partitions found from all your hard disk or external device. All of the partitions are arrayed by drive letters. If the partitions do not have drive letters, they will be also listed at the hindmost. For each one listed here, the MiniTool Power Data Recovery displays a number of statistics, including the volume label, the type of file system, the capacity, and its hardware information. 

Note: If the partitions are not found on the list, please choose the "Lost Partition Recovery" module. 

2. Once you have identified the partition from which you want to recover data, select the partition and then press "Full Scan" button at the lower right corner to begin full scanning on the device. And also, you could try pressing "Open" to enter into the partition directly. This function could recognize some of partitions that cannot be identified by Windows. 

3. The Full Scan function will scan the selected partition, collect and analyze every byte on the partition, and then it will possibly show you a list of possible partitions on the left side. Select a partition and all files found from this partition will be shown in the middle of the interface:

4. Choose the correct partition and check files you want to recover, and then appoint a location to save desired files by clicking “Save” button which is located at the lower right corner.

Of course, you can also click on “Back” to go to the partition list.

Here, you can uncheck other partitions and reserve the most suggested one to show its files only. Or just press "Show Files" button, and the freeware will launch the "Building Virtual File System" procedure to search the files. You will also see file/folder tree soon again.
