Accidentally deleted a volume


I have deleted this volume instead of another purely by accident and have some holiday moments on it. Without doing anything to it, I had tried to use some data recovery software and found the files but none can be opened correctly. Do you have any idea what should I do to recover the deleted volume?




Have you accidentally deleted a volume on your hard disk? What should you do after deleting a volume or partition? To restore the deleted volume successfully, you need to know the following three points to increase the possibility of lost volume recovery.

Stop using the hard drive or other storage devices

You’d better immediately stop using your computer or other portable storage devices. Because the data stored in the deleted volume will not be deleted permanently from the storage devices. The space occupied before will become unallocated and wait to be overwritten.

 Do not make any operation in Disk Management

After deleting a volume by accident, do not create a new volume on the storage device or format the hard disk. Otherwise, the lost volume data would be covered and there is little chance of recovery.

Find a professional partition recovery software

Some free partition recovery tips suggest you recover deleted volume via command prompt: assigning a drive letter to the lost partition. This method is only suitable for restoring missing partitions that are made by deleted or lost drive letters

If you don’t have any backup, the last thing you could do is to find professional partition recovery software to scan and recover the deleted volume. You could trust AOMEI Partition Wizard to perform deleted volume recovery.
