An active partition is a hard drive partition which is marked as one that system should boot, whenever it is switched on or we can say active partition is one which holds boot files to start the operating system on your computer. Only one partition on any hard drive can be marked as active partition. Sometimes you may accidentally mark any other drive apart from the drive where your operating system is installed then your system will be failed to boot. Hence you may lose complete data from your computer. So like this, majority of Mac users come across a huge loss of files from entire drive of the system if active partition get inaccessible. Few common data loss circumstances from active partition are described below:
- Data from active partition may vanish due to hardware failure
- Operating system crash may lead to data loss from active partition
- While deleting any unnecessary volume, if unknowingly you select active partition then you may lose entire data from that partition
- Data from active drive may also be lost due to partition corruption
One may get worried if valuable data maintained on active partition lost completely. But data which got erased from active partition will not be lost forever, it will be present on that memory space itself.
