Hard Drive Unallocated Space Data Recovery Software
What is unallocated space?
Unallocated space, or commonly known as “free space”, is the logical space on a hard drive that the operating system, e.g Windows, can write to. A storage device must have at least one partition before a file system can be set up and store data. The partition can contain all of the storage space on the drive or just some of it. On many storage devices, a single partition will often take up the entire drive. When partitions are lost, the drive returns to its original unallocated raw state. When a hard drive or a partition becomes unallocated space, it means its filesystem cannot be recognized by the computer. Since the computer can’t see any filesystem, you will be unable to see or access the files you previously stored on that part of the hard drive.
Is recovering data from unallocated space possible? For average users with a limited knowledge about computer storage technology, unallocated space data recovery seems too hard to pull off. However the data from the unallocated space are still on the hard drive, it does not just disappear, it just changes its status. This means until new files are written to the hard drive, the inaccessible data will remain deleted but still recoverable from the hard drive. Even if new files are written it must overwrite the same unallocated space before they are permanently destroyed.
