Partition lost is caused by many reasons, for example, incorrect operations, repartition disk, partition software goes wrong, partition deletion, partition table damaged, virus, etc. Typical features of partition lost are: partition's drive letter is missing in My Computer and the partition is shown "Not assigned" in Disk Management. The lost partition and its files can not be seen by the operating system. In many cases, as long as there is no further damage the lost partition can be recovered by Eassos Recovery.
Partition's information like size, type and location is saved in partition table; when a partition is deleted, partition information mentioned above will be deleted from the partition table, but data in the partition won't be deleted. Therefore, when a partition is lost it is possible to recover its information by certain techniques. Eassos Recovery provides such a function.
Comparing with other partition recovery software, Eassos Recovery has its unique techniques. When Eassos Recovery finds out a lost partition it displays all the properties and files of the partition so that you can browse files and folder and judge whether the partition is correct. The lower-right corner is the preview image of pictures and Office documents as well as the hexadecimal format data of every file. During the searching process, all the information is saved in memory not the disk which can prevent further damage caused by incorrect operations. Detailed information is shown in the following part.

Eassos Recovery finishes the recovery in 3 steps: Select Disk, Search For Lost Partitions or Recover Files and Save Partition Information.

If it is the partition you want to recover, please click "Reserve" and the partition will be saved in memory not disk; if it is not the partition you are looking for, click "Ignore" to skip this partition. All these operations are just saved in memory and the searching process is read only.

There is a check box "This is a PRIMARY partition" or "This is a LOGICAL partition" on the "Partition Found" dialog box. You can check the option to correct the partition type.
