Partition Recovery from a Hard Drive with Encrypted File System

The file system encryption is a technique that allows you to transparently encrypt critical files on NTFS (New Technology File System) file system to protect your private and sensitive data from unauthorized access. This is generally used for critical financial documents, business related data and information as it is essential to keep them safe. But in some situations, file system encryption might cause serious problems and make hard drive partitions inaccessible.

Such case might result into partition loss and need Partition Recovery to be sorted out. Sometimes when you open an encrypted hard drive partition, you may find that a software tool is automatically creating folder in the drive and some of your existing files are missing. In some situations, the whole partition may become invisible.

The problem could be due to virus infection or some issues with NTFS file system like corruption. Sometimes while booting your system, which has encrypted file system drives, you might come across the following error message: “Corrupt Master File. Cannot continue.” After this error message, the boot process fails and Windows tries to run CHKDSK (Check Disk). In such situations, you should format the disk partitions that are having problems. If that partition contains critical data, formatting is not suggested.

It may cause partition and data loss. In some situations, formatting the hard drive partitions by simply using the “Format” function in Windows by right clicking the partition and reinstalling the operating system makes other hard drive partitions, which are not formatted, inaccessible. You can see the files but can not access them. This behavior cause serious problems with your partitions and you need to format entire hard drive and reinstall operating system.

This method is capable of resolving most of the disk related issues. Though, it works in a majority of such situations but it also has a disadvantage. Formatting deletes all of the hard drive partitions and data. In such cases, you need to carry out Partition Recovery to recover lost Windows partitions. This is best possible with the help of third party tools, known as Partition Recovery Software. These are advanced applications that use effective scanning mechanisms to thoroughly scan entire hard drive and recover all of the partitions and data from them. With interactive, simple and graphical user interface, these software are completely easy to use.
