How To Recover A Deleted Hard Drive

There are multiple reasons entire hard drives are deleted.  Sometimes an operating system is so corrupted that the drive is replaced for fear that there may be bad sectors on the drive. Other times the drive may be deleted from a system accidentally as the case of an attached storage device that an end user had permissions to remove. Then there are situations where drives are deleted to veil activities of previous users.  In any event, just because the drive has been deleted, doesn’t mean that the data it contained is gone for good. Quick use of a good data recovery suite like Stellar Windows Data Recovery can often restore a deleted hard drive.


Can I Recover Files Manually?

If you can’t see the drive from the Windows explorer, the answer to this question is generally no.  However, that doesn’t mean the data you are looking for is gone forever. It is very possible that with the help of third party software you can recover the deleted hard drive.


How Can I Restore Files That Are Gone?

If no new data has been added to the drive, the files aren’t really gone.  They are still in the same location they were before the drive was deleted.  All that is missing is the record of the physical address they occupied, and a flag that indicates the disk space is not available for new data.
