As the most important product in information era, computer has blended into our lives and work completely. Since most files are stored in computer, data security is what users most care about. But computer itself has unsafe factors. When we are using PC, hardware problem, accidental deletion and illegal invasion all are likely to cause Windows file loss. When file is lost in Windows, file recovery for Windows is desperately needed for many users. Users who are not familiar with file storage principle of Windows may think that the lost files can not be recovered or that success rate of Windows file recovery is 100%. Actually, those two thoughts are not accurate. Any Windows file is possible to be recovered and no method can guarantee 100% Windows file recovery. What we could do is increase the success rate as much as possible.
Method for improving success rate of recovering Windows file
Before improving file recovery success rate, we have to know something about Windows storage way. In Windows, file system adopts two parts to store file: file head and storage area for storing data. File head is used to record file name, file attributes and cluster number and the real file data is stored in storage area. Normal deleting operation only marks file head with a deletion sign and it is reflected in FAT at the same time, which means that the file has been deleted and if we store data next time, this area can be overwritten. Seen from this, deletion doesn't wipe the data, which provides the possibility of Windows file recovery. Meanwhile, data loss caused by partition table damage or partition table loss is another difficulty. FAT records file data location and partition table decides some important information like the starting and ending sector of a partition, partition size and whether the partition is active partition. If FAT and partition table are damaged or lost, disk data can not be used because it can not be located, thereby causing partition damage or partition loss. We can see data loss is of different types, so different file recovery methods should be used to improve success rate of file recovery. The free data recovery software MiniTool Power Data Recovery released by MiniTool Solution Ltd. is the best choice for users. According to diverse data loss situations, the Windows file recovery software provides corresponding file recovery function modules. If used appropriately, it is very helpful in improving success rate.
