How to recover deleted partition from external hard drive
External hard drives are portable hard disk drives whose storage capacity ranges from several gigabytes (GB) to terabytes (TB). These hard disc drives can be connected to a computer using USB drive. External hard drives are mainly used to backup the data present in your computer. Partitions can be created on an external hard drive same as your internal hard drive partitions.
While creating partitions in your external hard drive, you can divide it based on your required size. For example, a 1TB external hard drive can be divided into 4 partitions of 250GB each. This can be done using disk management utility in Windows operating system. Once you create the partition, a drive letter will be automatically generated which will be different from the existing drive letters. Each time the external hard disk is connected to a different machine, the drive letters may vary depending on the drive letters already present in the internal drive.
