FDISK hard disk partition is in essence to format hard drive. User have set all hard disk physical parameters as well as assigned saving location of MBR and DBR backup as we create partition. However, regarding to information needed by file systems and other operating systems to manage hard disk, it is realized later by high-level formatting, namely Format command. To put a parable, partition is compared to draw a large pane on a blank paper, formatting to add checks in this pane, and installation of various software to write letters in checks. Partition and formatting are just like laying foundation for installing software which in fact play a role of marking and locating disk data. After FDISK partitioning, it merely restructures FDT, MFT and disk data still exist and is recoverable. Therefore, we could utilize Power Data Recovery, a data recovery software developed by MiniTool Solution Ltd., to recover lost data.
