How to Restore Deleted Partition

What is partitioning?

Partitioning is to divide mass storage (for example, hard disk) into isolated sections, and each section is a partition, such as C/D/E/F drive. Generally speaking, C drive is the system partition where we install operating systems. Partitioning is particularly useful if we run more than one operating system. For example, you might allocate one partition for Windows XP and another for Windows 7.

"I installed Windows XP on a new hard drive yesterday. There are 2 external hard drives connected to my PC.I was asked to enter the drive to install it during the process. But I mistakenly deleted the partition of that drive. My laptop can now realize my external HDD, but I am unable to open it. Can I restore deleted partition data?"

It depends on the partition table and boot sector that whether system can realise the partition or not. If partition boot sector is deleted or damaged by virus, the partition will be invisible, in other words, you think that you have deleted the partition and lost the data in that deleted partition.
