Can you recover files from a deleted partition?



I have a tough question I deleted a hard drive partition in recent days on my Windows 7 computer. I just use the Recycle Bin to retrieve deleted files, but this time it's different because I deleted the entire partition. I'm so frustrated because there are so many important files in that partition. Can I recover files from deleted partition in Windows 7 for free?

Have you ever experienced deleting a partition? Are you as confused as the people above? As a matter of fact, the partition you deleted still has a copy on the hard drive, so there is a good chance of a recovery partition. But you need to pay attention to not rebuilding a new partition in the unallocated space or adding new data to your PC.
