So what you have to do is rushing to find a kind of partition recovery tool to recover your damaged or corrupted partitions. Fortunately, EASEUS Partition Table Doctor, quickly and safely recovering your damaged or corrupted partitions, comes to your way.

What are partition, partition table and MBR?

Generally, it is necessary for us to know what partition, partition table and MBR are firstly before we go to partition recovery.

A partition is a defined storage space on a hard drive. Most operating systems allow users to divide a hard disk into multiple partitions, in effect making one physical hard disk into several smaller logical hard disks.

Partition table is located at the first sector (cylinder 0, head 0 and sector 1) of each hard disk. It memorizes information about sizes and locations of partitions on hard disk.

MBR is short for Master Boot Record, a small program that is executed when a computer boots up. The program begins the boot process by looking up the partition table to determine which partition to use for booting. It then transfers program control to the boot sector of that partition, which continues the boot process.

What EASEUS Partition Table Doctor can do?

EASEUS Partition Table Doctor is partition recovery software for hard disk partition recovery and repair. It is designed to recover the deleted, damaged, lost or corrupted partitions on hard drive, backup and restore, repair partition table, MBR, boot sectors, etc under MS-DOS, and Windows 95/98/Me, Windows NT 4.0, Windows 2000, Windows XP and Windows 2003.

To recover your damaged or corrupted partition, you should choose “Rebuild Partition Table”, EASEUS Partition Table Doctor will ask you to choose "Auto" or "Interactive" mode to recover partition.


The Auto mode will automatically save every partition found without process control within search processing. The Auto mode process is the same in most situations. The Interactive mode allows you to select each partition found in Partition Table Doctor manually. When rebuilding the partition table in Auto mode and errors occurring switch to the Interactive mode. Searched partitions will be displayed on screen in time sequence within search processing. During the Interactive mode, before choosing these detected partitions, Browse option will provide you a preview of the folders and files in the root directory on this partition for a more intuitional adjustment on it. If it appears the same as the previous one that means this function can fix it.

If you find the right partition, click "Yes" to rebuild partition table and "No" will back to the last step to search repeatedly until the partitions you need have been found.
