Hence, all the files that are present on other partitions (apart from the active partition) aren’t lost even if OS is re-installed.).

But what if one of the disk partitions containing vital files get deleted

Creation or deletion of a partition is carried out manually so one need not worry about hard disk drive getting deleted automatically.

In case, while using Disk Management utility, if we click on “Delete Volume” mistakenly then the entire partition gets erased immediately. When a partition gets deleted, all the saved files become unreachable. One of the most depressing facts about partition deletion is that there is no manual way to get back files in such circumstances.

  • Malfunctioning Third-Party Software: Besides using the Disk Management utility, you can also use different third-party software (like MiniTool Partition Wizard, Acronis Disk Director, GParted, etc.) to perform similar tasks. If these software starts to malfunction then it may result in the hard drive partition deletion.
  • Virus Attack: Viruses are small programs that can make some undesired changes to the hard disk drive. If the virus that intruded the system is of low intensity then it may just corrupt a few of the files. However, if the virus is of high intensity then it may either delete or corrupt hard drive partitions.
  • Improper System Shutdown: Many a time, the hard drive may become inaccessible due to improper system shutdown (Improper system shutdown can happen due to different reasons such as hardware issues, power loss, pressing power button, etc.). As improper system shutdown happen file system may get corrupted and henceforth, all files present within that drive gets inaccessible.
  • Improper Changes to the Partition Security Settings: By tweaking some security or accessibility settings of the hard drive partition you can ensure that only authentic user/users to access disk files stored on that partition. If any errors occur whilst applying these changes then files present on that drive may turn inaccessible.
