Can Recuva help recover lost partitions on HDD?

Recommended Posts

Hi I recently put in a second internal HDD (along with my current HDD)  in my computer and it  is saying that it needed to be formatted to open. I have files already on the drive that I am trying to access, so i do not want to reformat the drive.  I was wondering if Recuva can recover those files, Or is it just for drives that are in good working condition?

Recuva needs a drive letter and to be able to open  the partition. It recovers at the file level. The only software I have (limited) experience dealing with at the partition level, and seems foolproof, is Partition Magic. Google will get you there.

I'm by no means an expert with this stuff, but have used them with some success, so may be able to help if you get stuck.

 

Hope that helps.
