How NTFS recovery can be done using file recovery tool?

Windows 7 Operating System supports two different ways to format the hard disk i.e. one of the ways is by using FAT32 file system and also other is to apply NTFS file system. NTFS file system has several advantages over FAT32 file system like encryption, security, compression, disk quotas etc. Generally, NTFS is needed to share files and folders with network users. You can use FAT32 file system to share files and folders but, this doesn’t provide permissions that are required to secure the files and folders over the network. NTFS can only authorize user groups and accounts being connected to files and folder permissions that are required to implement required security. Hence, if you move files and folders to FAT32 formatted partitions, NTFS permissions are taken out of them.

Although, NTFS supports any partition size that you’ll want to work with, you can’t access each of the data from the device by moving NTFS formatted devices from computer to other. Because, the access permissions of NTFS are set by using accounts, which can be precise to some network, single system or both. You can even convert FAT32 partition to NTFS partition using CONVERT command-line utility. But, you are unable to convert NTFS partition back to FAT16 or FAT32 partition. If you wish to convert NTFS partition to FAT you’ll need to reformat the partition. Accidentally converting partition from NTFS to FAT may results in data loss. NTFS recovery can be carried out using relevant Windows 7 file recovery tool.

When you convert NTFS partition to FAT32 partition, all the data held in that specific partition get deleted then creates new FAT32 file system to store files. Windows 7 supports 3 a variety of disk storage i.e. basic, dynamic and GPT (GUID partition Table). The disk whose storage type is Basic is backward compatible with other versions of Systems and supports approximately 4 partitions. Windows 2000, Microsoft windows XP, Windows Server 2003, Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows Server 2008 and Windows Server 2008 R2 are the different versions of Operating-system supported by dynamic storage disks. Whereas, GPT storage type supports partitions whose storage capacity is larger than 2TB and will have approximately 128 primary partitions.

By default, all disks are basic disks and it can be converted to dynamic disk without loss of data. If you convert basic disk to dynamic, all the partitions in that disk are automatically changed to suitable volumes. However, converting dynamic disk back to basic disk is bit risky. You need to take backup of all data before converting dynamic to basic. Accidentally converting a disk from dynamic to basic may leads to loss of data.

Always, take backup to prevent data loss. When you have lost your data and then make usage of relevant recovery tool to recover lost data from hard disk drive.
