Revolution in Partition Recovery software is coming! ;-) Today we have released a new version of Partition Find and Mount with many valuable improvements.

If you are not familiar with Partition Find and Mount yet – it’s all about finding partitions when the MBR and/or Boot Sector are destroyed.

In this release we were primarily focused on dealing with damaged volumes and the speed and quality of partition searching process.

Reading a hard drive sector by sector takes a lot of time nowadays, so we are trying to read as little data as possible while not missing anything important. We have developed a number of techniques that allow us to scan the drive in a few minutes in the worst case scenario. And in 95% cases all partitions can be found in less than 1 minute. In comparison to other partition recovery software it’s a fascinating result!


This release summary:

  1. NTFS and FAT partitions with damaged Boot Sector can now be found and mounted correctly.
  2. Intellectual Scan was improved. Now it can find partitions with boot sector damage and can deal with a number of situations in which only Thorough scan was able to produce result.
  3. Partitions which were created using 3rd party software are now also can be found correctly.

Hope you enjoy this release! Everyone who have previously purchased a license can upgrade to v. 2.2 at no cost!

As you can see I’m searching your site. I did this because I’ve somehow damaged a SATA drive such that it shows as unpartitioned. Howwever it’s not damaged physically and the data all appears intact. Of course I need to recover it. This little jem you have created shows the dirve and lets me open it in explorer.

I assum the recovery process is then to copy the data (300 gig!) to a new drive and once confirmed as good, reformat the old?

The software does not appear to actually fix whatever I did to the drive? (I’ve had lots of x7e BOD’s fo reason so far unknown and thnk it happend while I investigate those.)


ps – assuming I recover this data, where do I make a donation to you for this jem?

Hi, as you can probably see I’m surfing around your site, this was driven by my need for something to help me recover a single partition hard drive that something (hopefully minor) has gone wrong with. i.e. the drive no longer looks partitioned. Running yur little gem of a program shows that all my data appears to be there still and intact, all 300 gig of it. so far so good.

I assume that the recovery process is, mount the discovered dirve, open in explorer, and copy the data to a new location? Because i see nothing that actually updates the drive. Once copied the old drive and be reformatted I guess to recover it fully? Is this correct?


ps, assuming this all works, how do i make a small contribution for your efforts?

Third time lucky, twice I’ve tried to post a comment and it’s not shown up? Maybe toooooo long?

You are correct, Partition Find and Mount does not fix anything. It mounts partitions and recovers what is damaged on the fly, without writing anything to the damaged disk. This is to prevent any further damage to the disk that may occur.

Yes, you would need to copy all the data off the damaged drive. Then, when you check that all the important data is intact, you can re-partition it with Windows Disk Manager and then copy all the data back.

In the meantime, I will check if we can set up donations on our Find and Mount website.

PS. Sorry for the delays, but we have to manually approve all comments (due to SPAM).

Ok, final question. I have to recover my 300gig (FULL) hard drive. THe partitons is found etc; I’ve gone and purchased an external drive to move the data to. However the system crashes (the cause of the loss in the first place I feel) when I try to attacch it. So the new plan it to copy the data accross the network to another PC – but I can’t share the Drive? Any clues?

And I’ve answered my own question about making a contribution – buy the Pro version. Ready to do so if there is a way around this situation.

Unfortunately, currently it is impossible to share the mounted partition. I have checked with our developers, they say that this is not something that could be easily fixed (the problem is related to OS permissions on read-only NTFS volumes). I would not expect this to be implemented anytime soon.

But you can always share a folder on the remote system and copy the files into that folder from your local PC.

How dumb do I feel. Of couse I can share the target for the data on the old machine and copy from it to the new! Duh.
I’ve put in my purchase for the Pro copy in appreciation of your product and assistance. If I get bak all 123000 photos of this drive it’s well worth the $44.
Just waiting for the key now, the test copy worked so we are looking good.

Add me to your really satisfied customer list.

Hi, this software looks promising. I have a 1 TB external hard drive. Manufacturer is Dell. I installed Find and Mount V2.32 and started the intellectual scan. First I would Kudos to this software that it can detect the drive and display it :-). Now I would like to know how much time it takes to scan 1 TB external drive. I need it so badly.

Lost Partition info (finger trouble) on a 500Gb HDD loaded with archived material – which is the only drive I have which wasn’t backed-up ! Much to my surprise, nothing. but NOTHING – freeware or paid – could recover the partition structure.
Then I stumbled across Partition Find and Mount – which found the full partition structure in just a few minutes. Brilliant. Many thanks for making this excellent program freeware. So how do I pay you for a Pro licence ? The procedure isn’t obvious to me.
