How to recover deleted partition on Mac?

Hard disk drive is a common medium for storing user data. The storage capacity of a hard disk is divided at the hardware level into fundamental units called as sectors. Each sector of a typical hard drive can hold 512 bytes of data. If you want your hard drive to appear as a multiple separate storage devices then you can divide this large hard drive into multiple partitions. When you establish the partitions, your system creates functional volumes inside the partition areas. Volumes are ultimately mounted by file system that defines how the files and folders are actually stored on your hard drive. File system facilitates organization, modification, retrieval, access control and sharing of data stored on your hard drive. If you want to install multiple Operating Systems on a single hard drive then you need to partition it. You can install Windows Operating System on Mac systems. While installing Windows Operating System on Mac system you need to format the partition where you want to install Windows Operating System. Sometimes, you may accidentally format or delete the partition where your Mac Operating System is installed. Accidentally formatting or deleting partitions deletes all the data stored on it resulting in loss of data. If you want to recover deleted partition on Mac then you need to use relevant partition recovery tool.

Mac Operating System supports 3 different partitioning schemes in order to boot your computers using standard PC-compatible versions, using modern Intel processors and to support older Mac hard drives. Master Boot Record (MBR. Apple Partition Map (APM) and GUID Partition Table (GPT) are the 3 different partitioning schemes supported by Mac Operating System. There are different third party utilities are also available to modify the size of an existing partition without deleting its contents. But, sometimes while modifying the size of the existing partition you may encounter some errors that may not allow you to access data from specific partition resulting in data loss. Mac Operating System supports HFS, HFS+ and HFSX file system. Sometimes, you may lose your data due to file system corruption. Virus attacks, power failure, improper system shut down are the common reason that cause file system corruption. When file system get corrupted, then it does not allow you to access data from hard drive resulting in data loss.

Take backup to avoid data loss. Because, in case if you lose the data then you can restore lost data from backup copy. Do not save or copy new data over corrupted or formatted partitions to avoid permanent data loss.

Remo Recover (Mac) Pro Edition quickly recovers lost data from accidentally deleted partitions. This software has in-built deep Scanning algorithms to recover lost data from inaccessible partitions. HFS+, HFSX, FAT16 and FAT32 are the different file system supported by this software. If the volumes of hard drive are fail to mount or not able to mount then you can use this software to recover lost data from it. This software has an ability to recover different types of files from non-bootable drives. Download free demo version to evaluate recovery results.
