Once, one of my friends had suffered a lot from data loss. He used to save all his
private matter on partition D, including photos, videos, music and things like that.
One day, when he starts his PC, he cannot find his partition D. He was so
disappointed that he began to recall what can be the cause for this. He sought in
his mind what he had done the day before with his computer. After some brainstorm,
something caught his attention. It seemed that he accidently deleted his D
partition...It is too late to mourn, so he think about me and told me that. With my

About partition recovery
To learn partition recovery, we should first give you an exact
impression about partition. Generally, a disk is always divided into several
parts, and each part is called a partition. It is very useful to divide hard disk into several partitions, because each partition
will work like a separate disk drive, you can use it for storing different
categories of data without confusion. If a hard disk only has one partition, once
the partition gets lost or is deleted accidentally, all data will get lost. However, if there are more than one partition on the disk and one of them
gets lost or is deleted, what you lost is only the data on the lost partition; the
data of other partitions on the disk are still there. And fortunately, if you have
lost one or two partitions, you can still have them back by partition recovery.
Partition Recovery is actually a method of recovering your lost
partitions that were accidentally deleted or damaged due to hardware/software
failure, virus attack or some other unknown reasons, as long as they were not
formatted / overwritten to after deletion. And here we will show you how to recover
partition with Partition Recovery Wizard built in AOMEI Partition Assistant, which
