March 5, 2019

If you lost or deleted partition accidentally, you can turn to AOMEI Partition Recovery Wizard, which allows you recover the lost or deleted partition and the data on the partition.


Once, one of my friends suffered a lot from data loss. He used to save all his private matter on partition D, including photos, videos, music and things like that. One day, when he started his PC, he could not find his partition D through Windows Explorer. He was very unhappy so he began to recall what could be the cause for this. He sought in his mind what he had done the day before the computer failed to boot. After recalling what he did in the past few days, something caught his attention. It seemed that he deleted his D drive accidentally...

Since the data saved on the D: drive was very important, he found me and hoped that I could help him recover the deleted partition and the data on that partition. With the help of AOMEI Partition Assistant, he recovered the partition and data successfully.

Choose Disk
Step3.You will see two search modes in the pop-up window:
Fast search: it will scan the first sector of each partition on the selected disk in order to find out the deleted or lost partition quickly. (Recommended)
Full search: more in-depth search every sector of each partition on the selected disk. And consequently, it needs more time. You can choose this method when Fast Search fails to find the deleted partition or lost partition.

Step4.Once the deleted/lost partitions are found, they will be displayed in the list box. Highlight the partition which you want to recover and click "Proceed" button.

The partitions found are listed in details. You can see their special information: file system, capacity and flag (primary or logical).
You can double click the partition to check the files to see whether the partition is the one you want to recover. To do this, you can click“Explore files in this selected partition" button after choosing the target partition.
You can select more than one partition by ticking in the box which lies in front of each partition information and recover them all in one time.
The final status after restoring can be seen in graphics bar and the partition with the blue cross is the partition you are going to recover.
Step5. AOMEI Partition Assistant will congratulate you saying the lost/deleted partitions have been recovered successfully. After that, you can see these files through “My Computer.
If you can't find those deleted or lost partitions by using Fast Search, try another way: Full Search.
This feature usually supports recovering lost/deleted partitions. If you want to recover files from the formatted/corrupted partition, you may need to find the professional data recovery software from the Internet to help you recover the data.
The recovered partitions may have no drive letter. If so, you cannot see the partitions through "My Computer". In this situation, please reboot the computer and then launch AOMEI Partition Assistant and manually assign a drive letter to the partition by right-clicking the partition -> Advanced -> select Change Drive Letter.
Partition Recovery Wizard supports recovering a basic disk with 512 bytes per sector.
Partition Recovery Wizard supports recovering a basic disk with NTFS and FAT32 file system only.

If there's a partition on the partition that you are going to recover, you may encounter the message saying the selected partition overlaps with the existing partition. To solve this problem, you need to delete the existing partition first through AOMEI Partition Assistant, and then use the partition recovery wizard to recover the partition.
