Testdisk – A Great Recovery Tool
You must be wondering why I am appreciating this tool this much. Well …this tool is worth it. I saved me from a hell of trouble. Actually due to some unknown reasons , my partition table got corrupted . My one partition was lost and rest were fine. The partition which was lost ( it had some important documents) , different tools showed it as free space.
At ubuntu forums, a fellow suggested to use this tool and it worked awesome. It detected my old partition table and I could recover my lost partition.
Why I liked this tool?
- It is deft at its work. Whatever it promises to do, it does it well.
- Works everywhere –windows, linux, dos, mac,
TestDisk is a powerful free data recovery software! It was primarily designed to help recover lost partitions and/or make non-booting disks bootable again when these symptoms are caused by faulty software, certain types of viruses or human error (such as accidentally deleting a Partition Table). Partition table recovery using TestDisk is really easy.
