Partitioning a volume is a process of sub dividing the main physical volume in to two or more drives. A volume on Mac with FAT file system can be partitioned with the help of the inbuilt Disk Utility tool on a Mac computer. This process is risky and any errors during the process can completely wipe off any data which is stored on that FAT file format volume. Hence before partitioning / re-partitioning any Mac volume, the prime rule is to create a backup of all important contents on that volume. But in cases where you did not feel the need to create a backup or you were not able to do so at the time of partitioning due to any reasons, there stands a huge risk of losing all data from that volume.
In case the unfortunate has happened, that is, all data from the volume is wiped off, or you accidentally deleted a wrong partition, we’re here to help you out. You have to perform FAT partition recovery Mac to undelete all its contents using Remo Recover for Mac software. But this can only be done only if a new volume has not been created or formatted in the former volume’s place.
Performing FAT partition recovery Mac:
In case of deleted partition, FAT partition recovery Mac is possible because when the Disk Management utility deletes a partition from the main disk drive, the partition’s file system boot sector gets removed, i.e. sector 0 of the drive. Then the Disk Management tool erases the volume’s entry from its private region database, letting rest of the partition’s content untouched. As the FAT file format system stores backup boot sectors, you can easily recover partition data on Mac by restoring the boot sector.
To carry out this task, that is to retrieve Mac FAT partition data, a powerful volume recovery tool called Remo Recover for Mac is highly recommended. Below are a few features of using Remo Recover software which you’ll find benefiting in restoring FAT partition data Mac.
