How to recover data from a formatted or damaged partition
Has this ever happened to you?
- You accidentally reformatted a partition containing important files.
- You reinstalled the Windows operating system on a wrong partition, and your important files have been overwritten.
- One of your partitions suddenly became inaccessible.
There is no need to panic, if you have Lazesoft Data Recovery.
The following are the simple steps you can use to recover data from your reformatted or damaged partitions.
1. Setup and run Lazesoft Data Recovery.
To recover data when Windows does not boot up normally, or if you want to reduce the risk of overwriting important data, especially data on Windows boot partition (C:), create a Lazesoft bootable recovery CD/USB disk; Boot from this disk to perform the data recovery process.
2. After Lazesoft Data Recovery is launched, click the <Partition Recovery> button on the Lazesoft Data Recovery 'Start Wizard Page'.
3. Select a source partition for recovering data, then click <Next>.
4. Select the "Automatic partition recovery" option.
5. Press the <Finish> button to start searching.
6. After the search is completed, you can preview and recover any listed files.
IMPORTANT: Never copy recovered files back to a location on the drive from which you are recovering them (the "bad" drive), or you will overwrite them and they will be gone forever!

"If you've ever stared at the login screen and cursed at being locked out of a system this program is a GODSEND. Easy to use and quiet brilliant. A friend's system had been brought to me with this exact problem (evidently their 9 year old had wanted to change the Password and had promptly forgotten what he had chosen)No matter how many attempts the Login screen wouldnt allow them past. This program allowed me to delete their old password (their 9 year old's name spelled backwards btw)and create a new one. System rebooted and entered Vista SP1 at the first try. Thank you. This is a great program." --Argonaught
