However, it can be extremely difficult to locate them and locate the data we need to recover. We will go over a few tips on how to recover lost data from D drive.
First, we will cover how to access the NTFS partition of your hard drive. The NTFS (Notting Hill File System) is a common file system used in most computers today. The NTFS stores the files on a FAT 32 file system and is best accessed through NTFS. To access the partition on the hard drive we will utilize the Explorer.

Once this is accomplished you can reconnect the drive. When you do reconnect the drive it will take a bit of time to recognize and attempt to recognize the drive.
Fourth, after disconnecting all other drives you should open the My PC Inspector software. Once you have opened the software you can determine which drive it is by clicking on the drive’s icon found at the bottom left corner of the window. You will see a series of numbers beginning with F: which represents the first drive on the left-hand side of the window.

Fifth, you will need to locate your file. You will be prompted to insert the name of the file that is no longer contained on the hard drive. In some cases, the drive may say “partitioned”. If you see this, you have two choices; you can continue and try to recover lost data from the drive, or you can perform a “cd” of the file and then re-attempt the recovery.
