May 12, 2023

If you lost or deleted partition accidentally, you can turn to AOMEI Partition Recovery Wizard, which allows you recover the lost or deleted partition and the data on the partition.


Once, one of my friends 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 started his PC, he could not find his partition D through Windows Explorer. He was very unhappy so he began to recall what could be the cause for this. He sought in his mind what he had done the day before the computer failed to boot. After recalling what he did in the past few days, something caught his attention. It seemed that he deleted his D drive accidentally...

Since the data saved on the D: drive was very important, he found me and hoped that I could help him recover the deleted partition and the data on that partition. With the help of AOMEI Partition Assistant, he recovered the partition and data successfully.
