Partition is a logical section of a hard disk in a computer. Operation system divides hard disk into several partitions through partition table and launch file system on each partition and then it can store data in the partition. When people use computer with incorrect operations or virus infects, it may cause the partition deleted or lost.
In windows operation system, there are several partition types. FAT(File Allocation Table) and NTFS (New Technology File System) are the most common two types. FAT includes FAT12, FAT16, FAT32. The FAT file system is technically relatively simple yet robust. It provides good performance even in light-weight implementations and is therefore widely adopted and supported by virtually all existing operating systems for personal computers. NTFS supersedes the FAT file system as the preferred file system for Microsoft's Windows operating systems. NTFS has several improvements over FAT, such as improved support for metadata, and the use of advanced data structures to improve performance, reliability, and disk space utilization.
When there are physical or logical damages to the disk, it may cause FAT and NTFS partition damaged, and then the data stored in the computer may get deleted or lost. In this case, you may need to ask for the help of the partition recovery software.
