We test out the USB drive that we have divided into two partitions and reformatted, but we cannot see one of the partitions on our File Explorer. Firstly, after the smooth installation process, we launched iBoysoft Data Recovery for Windows. We didn’t see the lost partition on the home interface, but we noticed the reminder on the top right corner.
One simple click of “Find More Partition”, we found the lost partition based on Capacity and Recovery Status. We select the lost partition and clicked “Next”.
After scanning, we found our needed files were located and even some previous files which were deleted several years ago were dug out. Then ticked these files and clicked Recover Button.
After the above simple and efficient recovery process, we got all my lost files back.
