Partition turned RAW on your hard drive, external hard drive, USB flash drive or SD card? Here is how to convert RAW partition into NTFS or FAT without losing any data present on it. Securely restore RAW partition data using Remo Recover in a few easy steps.
A scenario leading to RAW partition recovery
“I tried to access D:\ drive and it shows ‘inaccessible’. I am not sure what is going on. I went into Disk Management to check the status. It shows ‘RAW’. Is there a way to resolve this problem? It is important that I get back data on the drive.”
Partitions have a particular file system such as FAT16, FAT 32, NTFS, NTFS 5 etc. which are responsible for maintaining data entries on partitions. So whenever you save or store any kind of data, the file system creates a pointer to that information and stores information of your data. But at times, because of some logical reasons, these partitions may get corrupt, become inaccessible and lead to data loss.
A file system that is not recognized by the OS is called a RAW file system. And, the partition with the RAW file system is a RAW partition. The reasons for RAW partition are corruption due to improper shutting down of the system, virus attack, and so on.
In such cases, your partition becomes RAW or inaccessible along with the data present on it. And, if you want to restore RAW partition data, data recovery tools are your best bet.
Remo Recover is one such powerful tool that completes data recovery from RAW and inaccessible partitions in a few simple steps.
