We should all know that a disk is usually divided into several parts, and each parts is called a partition. A partition can store a specific kind of data so as to make it easy for us to manage a sea of data. Usually we would divide a portion of space to install operating system, a portion of space to store working paper, and a portion of space to save private files separately. But there is a risk that we may get one or all of our partitions lost due to many reasons. And the most likely reasons are mistaken deletion and virus attack. In these situation, all data in the lost partition will disappear from My Computer. Have you ever encounter such situation? If this bad luck comes across you, what should you do?
In fact, this kind partition lost can be recovered by using free partition recovery software, as long as we haven’t recreate a new partition and rewrite data in it. We can just rely on the software to restore partition without efforts. Of course, once the partition is recovered, all the data disappeared will emerge altogether.
So what is the free partition recovery tool as we have mentioned above. Yes it is MiniTool Partition Wizard Free Edition.

Step Two: Select a scanning range. Since the partition is lost, we can choose Unallocated Space. Click “Next“.
Step Three: Select scanning method for the specific scanning rage. Usually we can choose Quick Scan first, because it’s time-saving; if Quick Scan fails, turn to Full Scan. Click “Next“.
Step Four: Choose all needed partitions on the disk. So we should check all of them listed there. Click “Finish” and we will be lead to the main interface.
