Features : How to recover lost files not showing up from hard drive

  • 1. Software causes "false" loss of space     
     Now many software have delete data protection functions, such as Norton's Recycle Bin protection function, data recovery software such as FinalData. If NortonSystemWorks is installed on your system, the files in the Recycle Bin will be backed up to the hard disk when you empty the Recycle Bin. Even if the recycle bin is empited ,the emptied data can be recovered. We can view these files in Norton's UnEraseWizard . To restore the "lost" hard disk space protected by  Norton , just right-click  the "NortonProtectedRecycleBin" icon on the desktop and select the "EmptyNortonProtectedFiles" to empty these files in Norton. In addition, some data recovery software also have data protection functions. FinalData will automatically copy and back up all the  files you deleted  to a directory, which will not increase the available space after deleting files. Just find and clear these backup files in these software.

    2. After the virus attack causes the loss of hard disk space.     
     The computer malfumctions caused by the virus can be described as various, which will lead to the loss of the hard disk space. For example,after being attacked by CIH virus,hard disk space will generally be lost. To deal with viruses, it is still the  old saying: install a good reputation  firewall and anti-virus software and  update the virus database files regularly, do not easily open some executable files that are unknown and regularly upgrade the system, the patch should not fall.

    3. File allocation table corruption causes the loss of space          File allocation table (FAT) is an implicit table on a floppy disk or hard disk. FAT records how files are stored on specific (not necessarily contiguous) clusters. The file allocation table uses a simple method to keep track of the data constantly. In FAT, the entry of the first cluster is the address of the second cluster used to store the file. At the entrance to the second cluster is the address of the third cluster... until the final cluster entry containing the file end code. If the FAT table data is destroyed for some reasons, the logical continuity of the hard disk data will be disordered, resulting in the loss of hard disk space. Due to the  defects  of  the traditional FAT format, if a cluster does not appear in any file allocation chains and the cluster is marked as non-zero in the corresponding file allocation table, then the cluster is neither used by any files , nor can be used by other files, thus "cluster loss" occurs. The loss of clusters will inevitably lead to the loss of hard disk space. This "loss" of space is usually caused by abnormal termination of the program in operation and abnormal shutdown of the system. This kind of space loss  can be solved with a general disk repair tools, but the data is often beyond repair.

    4. Other reasons    
     In addition to the above-mentioned common cases of loss of hard space, there are many other reasons that may also lead to the loss of hard disk space. For example, a bad track on a hard disk can also result in capacity reduction. At this time, it is recommended to back up the data first, and then repair the hard disk with the repair software. In addition, many people  set up some hidden files, these hidden files are not considered as the size of the normal file space when counting hard disk space,so  many people  suspect that the hard disk is lost, but it is not.

    Partition restore is generally difficult to retrieve, but also look at your partition and write to the hard disk if the file does not. You can go to Baidu to use a variety of file recovery, Baidu search keywords: file recovery after hard disk partition, I try to use the software to restore the software, I will not say. Tutorials and camera steps have  much more. If the file is very precious, there are  a lot of professional data recovery agencies available, send the hard drive, and the professionals pay for recovery.

    In short, after the hard disk space is lost, the first thing to consider is whether the disk has an error. Secondly, consider whether  a virus infects the system, and then consider whether it is caused by installing some software with file protection function in the system. After finding the reasons, we can suit the remedy to the case and find the appropriate solution.
