Cannot access my HDD’s second partition

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -

Hello experts. All the problems started, when my laptop suddenly shut down. After shut down it started up. Everything seemed to be working fine, but when I tried to access my second partition on letter K:, it gave me an error.

Is it possible to fix it without formatting?


My Computer

K: is not accessible.

The file or directory is corrupted and unreadable.

Cannot access my HDD’s second partition


Usually, in incidents where your hard drive's partition collapses, there is no solution but to format it again. A hard drive’s partition is different from a file structure that often encounters file errors like cross-linked file. The drive’s partition is the very critical part of your hard drive because it sets the boundaries of the drive’s size. You can divide the capacity of a large hard disk into several drives by just adjusting its partition and/or creating additional partitions.

You can still try if the hard drive’s partition can be recovered using Partition Magic. It can diagnose if your partition has errors. But I doubt it if it can fix it. If it can’t, you can still try searching the web for a partition recovery tool.
