It is like a regular custom for computer users to make different partitions to their hard disks and keep their data categorically into them. Apart from this, users also install different operating systems into different partitions. However, while booting an operating system from a particular partition, you may encounter some stop errors. These error messages pops up making the booting process cease and the partition in which the particular operating system is being installed, becomes inaccessible. In that situation, to access the saved data from the inaccessible partition, you need to follow certain steps of windows recovery and finally a clean installation of the operating system, if Windows recovery fails. With a clean installation of the operating system, all your data will be erased, hence, you need to restore them from the latest backup. Real problem arises when you don't have available backup or for any reason, the backup fails to restore your data. Then, every finger desperately point to any efficient Windows partition recovery

Like a hardware device, NTFS file system also uses a driver file that lets you access data from the partition. The default driver file of NTFS file system is Ntfs.sys. You can also obtain third-party hardware and file system drivers, as per your requirements. However, in some cases, third-party drivers may prevent you to access files from NTFS file system partition and cause grave partition loss situations. In such cases, you need to use advanced Windows partition recovery
solutions to get your valuable data back if backup is not available.
As a practical example of this problem, you may come across the below symptoms when you try to open files on NTFS partition on a computer that is running Windows XP SP2 on NTFS file system formatted hard drive and have third-party drivers installed:
Your Windows system reboots automatically.
You encounter the below error message after logging into the system:

NTFS (New Technology File System) is a journaled file system, developed by Microsoft Corporation for Windows operating system. It is the successor of FAT file system and provides enhanced reliability, functionality, and performance. Some advanced features of Windows NT-based operating system are supported only by the NTFS file system. The file system uses a new structure for easy storage, access, and manipulation of data. However, in some situations, the structure of NTFS file system may corrupt and the NTFS file system partitions may become inaccessible. It causes Windows partition loss and requires partition recovery
to be resolved.
The NTFS file system structure uses a number of system files, which are responsible for performing specific operations. Some of the major attributes of NTFS file system are as given below:
Multiple Data Streams- It supports various data streams, where stream name recognizes new data attributes on file. You can open a handle to every data stream...

In Windows systems, the hal.dll file is an abstraction layer file that acts as a interlink between the hardware components and operating system. This file is required to boot the Windows system. If this file gets corrupt or goes missing, then you would not be able to start the system. Such cases would occur because of various reasons such as virus infections, power outages, hardware malfunctions, abrupt system shutdown, etc. There are several in-place methods that you should use to fix this problem. However, if none of them work then you should use a third-party partition recovery
software to recover the inaccessible data.
Consider a scenario wherein you start your Windows XP system, but unable to do so. An error message is displayed, that is:
“Winnt_root\System32\Hal.dll missing or corrupt:
Please re-install a copy of the above file.”
In addition, you may observe the following strange behavior as well:...

Are you unable to read data from and write data to your Microsoft Windows hard drive? Well, the problem may occur due to errors or corruption with the internal structure of Windows hard drive. In such situations, all your business-critical Windows files become inaccessible and you come across severe file loss situations. This behavior may occur with both internal and external Windows hard drives. In such situations, you must have an absolute, valid, and updated backup of all your significant files. Otherwise, you have to opt for Windows file recovery
to get your lost files back.
As an practical example of this problem with Microsoft Windows operating system, you may come across the below error message when you try to perform a read or write operation on your Windows hard drive:
“Serious disk errors writing to drive X”...

In the Windows NT (Server 2003, XP, and 2000) systems, the HAL (Hardware Abstraction Layer) file is the collection of certain technology and drivers that communicate with the system hardware. It prevents the applications to directly access the system's resources, which prevents many device conflicts and system crashes. However, still sometimes the HAL file may get corrupt thereby making the system inaccessible. Such problems may occur due to various reasons such as virus infections, power outages, damaged file systems, etc. In such situations, you should take appropriate corrective measures to address the situation. However, if you are unable to do so then you should use a third-party Windows partition recovery
software to rectify the issue and recover your inaccessible data.
Consider a scenario wherein your Windows XP system is unable to start when you switch it on. An error message is displayed, that is:...

Is your Microsoft Windows hard drive partition inaccessible? Is Disk Administrator showing the partition as 'unknown'? Well, this problem may occur due to corrupt or damaged boot sector of hard drive partition. In such cases, your Windows hard drive partition become totally unusable and you can not extract stored data from it. It leads to significant partition loss situations and needs partition recovery
to be resolved, if there is no backup in place.
Microsoft Windows operating system enables you to replace the damaged boot sector with backup copy of the partition boot sector. Before you replace the damaged boot sector with the backup of boot sector, you should bear in mind that the following two conditions must meet:
You must have NTFS file system on your hard drive. FAT file system currently doesn't keep backup copy of Windows boot sector.
You must be capable of booting your computer to Windows NT...
