Recover deleted/lost data from Re-partitioned hard drive
The decision of whether or not you want to re-partition your hard drive, depends purely on the type of file system that you are using. There are times when you will need to install more than one operating system on your PC, and under these circumstances you will need to partition the hard drive, so that memory can be allocated accordingly for efficient usage of disk space.
It is true that re-partitioning of the hard drive is possible at any given time, except under some cases like in Windows Vista, where you will need the help of a third party software in order to resize your partitions. The problem with some third party software is that there is the risk of data loss that is bound to occur during re-partitioning of the hard drive using such third party software. It is therefore good to plan your partitions well in advance, so that re-partitioning can be avoided. Over partitioning can be said to be one of the main causes that leads to re-partitioning of the hard drive.
In most cases users miscalculate the size of the partition that they need to maintain. This results in the user storing files on a particular partition, while the other partitions are left untouched with lots of space in them. This eventually results in the user trying to re-partition the drive, which leads to loss of data from the partition. In such cases, when data has been lost after re-partitioning of the hard drive, it is best to make use of a partition recovery software that can recover all the lost data.
