Reviews and Testimonials from industry experts and users:

Before going though the recovery procedure and various advantageous features of the partition recovery software, let’s have a brief discussion about what MBR is and how the MBR corruption affects the NTFS partition data.

What is MBR?

Master Boot Record or MBR is responsible for containing necessary information like main partition table and boot loader procedure. It also holds disk information, serial number, number of sectors per cluster etc. The Basic Input Output system (BIOS) uses this system to recognize the hard drive. Any kind of damages to this MBR record will cause the saved data deletion and the saved data will be inaccessible.

Causes and Resolutions for MBR corruption in NTFS partition:

The partition boot sector comprises of important data used by the MBR to boot an NTFS partition. The first sector of NTFS partition consists of various entries that are used at the booting time. These entries get modified and changed in every other second. When the boot sector gets damaged the NTFS partition becomes unbootable resulting in inaccessibility of the important data stored in the NTFS partition.

You may get any of the following error messages while trying to access the data in the NTFS partition:
“Missing Operating System”
OR
“Error Loading Operating System”

The MBR might be corrupted due to some of the following reasons:

  • Boot sector Virus: The most probable reason behind MBR corruption may be boot sector virus. The boot sector virus may corrupt the important component of MBR resulting in the inaccessible NTFS partition.
  • Corrupted Boot loader: If you are working on a dual boot system, there are more chances of the boot loader getting corrupted. If the operating system with boot loader gets damaged due to any reason, then you could not be able to boot either of the operating system.
  • Sudden power failure / Accidental system shutdown: Sudden power failure or accidental system shutdown while the NTFS partition data is in use can lead to MBR corruption and NTFS partition data inaccessibility.

Suggestions to increase recovery chances of NTFS partition data:

  • The inaccessible partition data will be there in the hard drive of the computer even though they are inaccessible to the user. Therefore, they can be easily retrieved using any partition recovery software before they are overwritten. To avoid overwriting of the deleted / lost / corrupted partition data, it is strongly recommended not to save any new data to the hard drive containing deleted partition because; it may overwrite the deleted partition data leading to permanent data loss.
  • On the same drive don't install the recovery utility. You can install the software on any other healthy computer and connect the hard drive to continue partition recovery process efficiently.
  • Defragmenting or reformatting the hard drive may cause the situation even worse.
  • While selecting the partition recovery software, try to use the demo version of the software first and if you are satisfied with the demo version, then you can definitely purchase the full version of the software.
  • Make sure that the software you are selecting does not modify the original content of the lost / inaccessible data during the recovery process as well as matches to your partition data loss scenarios.
