NTFS (New Technology File System) is a self-healing and high-performance file system of Microsoft Windows operating system. It is a recoverable Windows file system, which guarantees the integrity and consistency of the hard drive volume through transaction logging and then recovery techniques. In case of hard drive failure, NTFS file system restores the consistency using Windows Data Recovery process, which accesses the information stored in log file.
The NTFS file system recovery process is exact and ensures absolute restoration of the file system in a consistent state. The transaction logging method of NTFS file system needs a quite small quantity of overhead. This journaled file system assures the integrity of hard drive volumes by automatically executing windows data recovery operation at the time when program access NTFS file system volume after rebooting the system followed by a failure.
NTFS file system also employs a technique, known as cluster remapping, for minimizing the consequences of bad sectors on NTFS partition.
If either the boot sector or MBR (Master Boot Record) is damaged, you may not access your precious data stored on NTFS file system partition.
How to Recover Data with NTFS?
The NTFS handles every I/O operation, which alters the system files on NTFS file system partition as transaction, and it manages every transaction as integral unit. After starting, a transaction is either completes successfully or it is rolled back in the event of disk failure. NTFS returns the volume to its original state, as it was before initiating the transaction.
In order to ensure the completion or roll back of the transaction, NTFS file system records sub-operations of transaction in log file before they're written on hard drive. Once the transaction is successfully completed, NTFS file system ensures that whole transaction seems on volume, even if hard drive fails.
NTFS file system ensures integrity of volume structure through the transaction logging and the recovery methods. Due to the same, system files remain intact and accessible. But, you may lose your data in case of system failure.
In such situations, windows data recovery software help you to get your valuable data recovered. They use advanced scanning methods to thoroughly scan entire hard drive and extract all lost, missing, and inaccessible data from it. They Recover Windows Data in a quick, safe, and easy way.
