Recovering FAT Partition on Mac


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.
