Hard disk is partitioned into different volumes to store data. This is very useful to store data efficiently. Owing to some error in partition table, or due to accidentally deleting the partition, the partitions get corrupted. In order to resolve this kind of problem you need to perform recovery of the partition. Recovery partition offers complete solution to the problem with the hard disk partition.
Working of recovery partition
In order to recover the corrupted partition, you need to find the size and location of the corrupted volume. If the hard disk is partitioned as a single logical drive, you might use file system recovery algorithm to recovery the problem with the volume. The Master Boot Record (MBR) is used to hold information about how many volumes there are on the physical hard disk, and where they are located. Recovery partition would help to recover the contents of the partition that has become corrupted.
Various tools are available online for recovering the partition contents. This could be used to recover the problem with partition if your hard disk is partitioned into single logical drive or multiple drives. Different types of software are available for the recovery partition like ZAR data recovery software, partition table recovery software etc. Recovery CD could be used for recovery partition.
