Microsoft Windows Vista is a popular version of Windows operating system, developed and marketed by Microsoft Corporation. Windows Vista is available in various versions, to be used on desktops, laptops, media center PCs, and tablet PCs. It provides various advantages over its predecessor Microsoft Windows XP. The operating system includes advanced security features and rich graphical user interface. However, in some situations, Vista may malfunction and start working unexpectedly. In such cases, you may need to reinstall Windows Vista to fix the problem. However, reinstalling Vista accidentally on wrong partition may cause partition loss and serious data loss situations. At this point, you need to have an effective and advanced Partition Recovery Software to recover lost or damaged partitions.
You may reinstall Microsoft Windows Vista, when:
You wish to replace the current operating system, which is either damaged or cannot fulfill your requirements.
You wish to install Microsoft Windows Vista on separate hard drive partition to configure your system as dual-boot.
You wish to restore default settings of Microsoft Windows.
You are using the Windows Vista boot disk to fix some startup or boot problems with Vista and accidentally selected to Reinstall.
Accidental reinstalling of Windows Vista may cause serious problems, if you do not have complete backup of your valuable data on the partition.
Windows Vista reinstallation may format the hard drive partition, which ultimately removes all the existing data from the partition and cause severe partition loss situations.
You should not panic in such cases as the partitions and stored data are not permanently deleted from your hard drive, even after formatting. The data and partitions remain intact on the drive, until they are being overwritten by other data.
When a partition is deleted, only the partition table entry of particular partition is removed. The partition remains physically intact and can be recovered in most of the cases. If you have a backup, then you can restore all the data to newly created partition of Windows Vista. If you do not have an updated backup, use Windows Partition Recovery tools to extract lost partitions and data they contain.
The Partition Recovery applications employ advanced scanning mechanisms to methodically scan entire hard drive and extract lost partitions from it. With non-destructive behavior and interactive graphical user interface, the Partition Recovery Software are safe and easy to use.
