 NTFS Partition Recovery

(NTFS Data Recovery)

Executable code in MBR selects an active partition and passes control there, thus it can start loading proper files (COMMAND.COM, NTLDR, … ) depending on the file system type on that partition. However, if these files are missing or corrupted then OS will be unbootable – remember the famous error “NTLDR is missing .???

In this case recovery software accesses this drive on the low level bypassing system boot (for example, if you boot from another HDD or bootable floppy) and will help you to see all other files and directories on the drive and allow you to copy to the safe place onto another drive….

Recovery Console

Recovery Console is a command line utility similar to MS-DOS command line. You can list and display folder content, copy, delete, replace files, format drives and perform many other administrative tasks.

To run Recovery Console, boot from Windows bootable disks or CD and choose Repair option, when system suggests you to proceed with installation or repairing and then press C to run Recovery Console…

You will be asked to which system you want to log on to and then for Administrator’s password, and after you logged on — you can display drive’s contents, check the existence and safety of critical files and, for example, copy them back if they have been accidentally deleted.!

Recovery Software

Third party recovery software in most cases does not allow you to deal with system files due to the risk of further damage to the system, however you can use it to check for the existence and safety of these files..!!
