Windows 7: Partition Find and Mount

Partition Find and Mount

Recently a friend asked me to look into why his PC was shorting out - turns out his power supply wasn't powerfull enough but that's another story

It turns out that one time when it cut out, his external 320GB hard disk crapped out too and was showing 2.5GB of available data and a 295GB unallocated partition.....Oh dear, there was sooo much data on that disk.

I started searching for partition recovery software and came accross a little (1.6MB) app call Partition Find and Mount so thought I'd give it a try. OMG!! It scans the affected drive then allows you to Mount the deleted partition to a new drive letter. This allows you to access the deleted partition so you can copy anything you may need over to a new drive. You can then unmount, close the software and delete the partitions and reformat the drive, good as new

Painless Partition Recovery

Partition Find & Mount implements a new concept of deleted or lost partition recovery. It works in the most convenient way possible by locating and mounting partitions into the system, thus making those lost partitions available to you like any generic disk volume. Partition Find & Mount will also work in case any Boot Record (including the Master Boot Record) is missing, damaged or overwritten.




Partition Find & Mount is:
  • Easy to use. You do not need special knowledge to use the software.
  • Safe to your data. There is no possible way you could get things worse.
  • Free for personal use. Use it as much as you like.
Lost important data? Give it a try. Partition Find & Mount is free for personal use!

And....It works on Windows 7 too

Good post OS...

Thanks!

(When I saw "Source Here", I thought it was the 'source-code' for the freebie!)


Wonder whatever happened to that " FUJITSU MPF3102AT hard drive" that he was going to demo ?

(In a good mood tonight...)

Was looking a tool to retrieve mysteriously disappeared system recovery partition from an old HP Pavilion laptop which I want to restore to factory settings. Found it using the tool of this tip. Thanks, mate. Now looking for some quality posts around here to be able to rep you, currently your rep button tells "You must spread some Reputation around before giving it to Orbital Shark again."

This won't work for me, it says that it uses a driver that is not digitally signed, is this because I'm using 7 x64? How can I solve this problem? I lost a 250GB data partition. All the data is still there but I can't get to it, and other software I've seen that can access it costs $100+

Hi Sir Glen welcome to the forums.

I don't use 64bit but if you boot up using the F8 key (just after the POST screen) 1 of the options is regarding Disabling Driver Signing. Try that option then install the software.

Hope it helps

Thank you very much OS, that worked. I wasn't aware of the F8 option previously, it's nice to know it's there.
