Just like any other file system of Widows operating system, the file system of Windows 7 operating system saves and organizes the hard drive data. The file system provides better security, indexing, and file search in comparison to previous versions of Windows. While Windows 7 file system provides is comparatively safe, it can also be corrupted due to numerous logical factors like, improper system shutdown, operating system malfunction, and fatal virus attack. After the file system is corrupted, the data stored in the hard drive becomes inaccessible, as your system becomes unbootable. In such cases, a complete data backup file allows you to restore the data and overcome the corruption scenario. But, if in case of absence of data backup file or the file getting corrupted, then you will need to use advanced Data Recovery
Software that can recover your lost data...

Being a computer user, you may get into situations where you think that your hard drive is damaged. But there is actually data and information still on the drive and you can get it back. Several computer users are not aware of the fact that they can retrieve their data, even after the hard drive failure. Data Recovery is possible in most of the data loss situations, through effective recovery solutions.
As long as the hard disk is not toasted, completely broken, or data is overwritten, you can retrieve your data. When a file is removed from the hard drive, it is not actually deleted. Every file, stored on the hard drive, has a unique entry in the file system table. Operating system use this entry to locate the particular file on the hard drive and access it.
When you delete a file, only the file system entry of the file is deleted. File remains physically intact to the hard drive, however it can not be accessed due to missing entry. You can recover the lost file in all such cases. If the hard drive is having any problem with physical components or your computer is not able to detect the drive, then you can try it using with another computer...

Nothing can be more frustrating for a computer user than receiving an error message at the booting of system. Few fundamental causes responsible for the occurrence of the error message could be file system corruption, improper system shutdown, human errors, and malicious software like virus. A booting error message not only halts the booting process of a computer, but also makes the data stored in the hard drive inaccessible. To effortlessly overcome the hazards of the error message and to access the hard drive data, the user can restore the data from an updated backup. But, there have been thousands of case studies where the user forgets to create an adequate data backup. For such situations, only a powerful third-party Partition Recovery
application can help.
To illustrate the above case, consider a scenario where you encounter underneath error message when you boot your system and try to connect to the Internet:...

Windows Vista boot sequence first involves loading the MBR, followed by the drive boot sector . The boot sector then accesses the Windows Boot Manager to finally load the Boot Configuration Data (BCD) store and complete loading the operating system. If any of these components get corrupt, the Windows fails to start. As a result, your data becomes inaccessible. The first tip to solve such problems is to run 'Startup Repair' If this fails, you should repair them manually or reinstall Windows as the last resort. At this point, if a valid backup is unavailable, a Partition Recovery
Software can get your data back.
For example, suppose you use a Windows Vista based computer. You receive a blue screen error message when attempting to start the computer. The error indicates that a critical boot data structure (MBR, boot sector or Boot Configuration Data store) is corrupt. When you try to boot the computer from Vista installation disc and use 'Startup Repair' option under 'System Recovery Options' from Windows RE (Recovery Environment) as the basic troubleshooting step, you get an error message as below:...

The disk partition containing hardware-specific files that Windows requires to boot successfully is termed as System partition. This partition must always be set as active. A Windows Vista running computer requires a valid system partition to boot. By valid it means, the partition that contains all required system files. If any of these files goes missing or gets corrupt, a computer may start on-disk Win RE (Windows Recovery Environment) instead of Windows Vista. Such fail-overs cause inescapable situations of repairing Windows installation or using the latest backup as Windows loses the capability to boot. However, if all the measures fail, you can safely use a Windows Data Recovery product to recover the lost data.
As an example, you can consider a scenario when you try to start a Windows Vista-based computer. The system may fail to boot and get forced to start in Windows Recovery Environment. You attempt to repair by using Startup Repair option, but this too fails with an error as below:...

System32 is a Windows system directory that is located under C:\Windows\System32. The folder contains various critical system files that Windows requires to boot and run. For this reason alone, you see many Windows system error messages specifying System32 folder. The System32 directory is not itself the root of Windows issues until it is corrupt or missing. But if this occurs, it generally leads to data inaccessibility and an unbootable system. Thus, to regain the lost data, you need to either apply your last backup or recover it through a windows Data Recovery Software
For instance, suppose you use a Windows XP-based computer that runs in dual-boot configuration with Windows 2000. You try to boot Windows XP, but fails with a boot time error. You try to access the System32 folder in Windows Explorer by booting into Windows 2000. This too fails with an error as below:
“directory missing or corrupt”...

Each operating system has its own credentials to be installed. Windows operating system of different versions delivers various general and graphical textures for you to operate. But, the entire process of re-install is complicated as it may take a considerable amount of time and can erase all the data from the hard disk. Thus, re-installation of the operating system should be done with immense care. However, in any case, if data loss occurs after re-installing the operating system, then you can use a valid backup file to restore your data. But, in case the backup does not exist or it fails to restore the data, then you can always opt for a Hard Drive Recovery software
to recover your data.
For instance – On a Windows XP-based system, you perform a re-install of Windows XP, then there is a definite possibility that you may lose all your data in the All Users folder and also the default program templates and settings stored in the Default User Folder. In addition, the Start menu shortcuts, items in the startup group, and all the data stored in the Shared documents folder may be missing...

Many of us think that the hard drive is the most reliable storage medium that never fails. But, the reality lies way beyond. Being a mechanical device, a hard drive is bound to fail. It can fail anytime and at any moment. You can never be certain or aware of hard drive failure or damage. When a hard drive fails, you may encounter unexpected behavior of the system, error messages and crash down of programs. A s a result you may lose your data. In other words, a hard drive failure means disaster. It is therefore always recommended to maintain a valid backup file to restore the data at the time of data loss. In the unfortunate event of unavailability of backup, Hard Disk Recovery
services have always proven handy in recovering the data.
Let us take an example – You attempt to run a program in a Windows based system, but the program crashes and the following error message appears:
“Program_name has encountered a problem and needs to close...
