Data and partition recovery

HP Notebook - 15-ac031tx
Microsoft Windows 8.1 (64-bit)

Hi, I want to know about the data and partition recovery from my hard disk. Actually, I was trying to recover data from my SD card but mistakenly, the logical partitions got lost and remained as unallocated, only C:/ drive was available. After that, I tried to create partitions from unallocated drive. Yes, i did it. But now question is will  I be able to recovery the data which was lost from earlier partition. Please help me with the proper solution beacause I have lost important documents and files.

Data and partition recovery

Hi,

You will need data rcovery program and will have to run it in deep scan or surface scan and the programs will probably recover files which are from well known formats. (This necessary because by creating partitions you have formatted the drive) There are many freeware programs which will probably achieve this, look out that many say they are free and after scanning will only let you recover a certain amount of data. The surface scan can take a long time nad you can let it run a whole night.

Here is a site I was just looking at which talks about these programs:

https://www.lifewire.com/free-data-recovery-software-tools-2622893

 

I would try Pandora from, what I was reading, it has the ability to perform surface scan and recognize files. Install it on c: drive and recover data to an external hard drive since if you recover to your partitions it will overwrite the data on it and will no longer be recoverable.

There are also some good paid versions of software.

 

Let me know if you need further help,

David
