Recover Data after Reinstalling Windows

Normally, Reinstallation refers to installing a computer operating system. This might be due to virus attack, Trojans or simply to optimize the operating system though it is working normally. Usually when you reinstall Windows, ‘Documents and Settings’ will be reinitialized and the files in that folder will be deleted. These deleted data can still be recovered using any data recovery software. If you would like to recover the lost data then stop using the hard disk drive and make sure you do not save any new data to the hard disk, as this would cause overwriting and permanent data loss.

Common Reasons for OS Reinstallations are:

  • Hardware failure during startup causes your system to crash
  • You are putting in a new hard drive in your computer
  • You are installing a new or different Operating System
  • Up gradation of OS i.e. from the existing version to a new version for advanced features which may cause error and makes the system unbootable
  • To increase system performance due to many system errors
  • Your Operating System files have been corrupted beyond repair either by improperly uninstalling software, a computer virus or a corrupt software installation.
  • Corrupt computer registry or drivers files

The Data can be recovered based on the installation method you performed. There are three different types of installation. The three types are as follows:

  • Clean installation: The biggest advantage of performing a clean installation is it leads to improved performance and stability. However, after clean installation all the data present in the previous OS is lost. Data can still be recovered unless overwritten
  • Upgrade installation: Upgrading the current OS to a newer one in order to use its advanced features. The biggest advantage of an upgrade is that you can retain application installations and user settings. However sometimes data loss situation occurs
  • Multiple boot installation: Installing more different OS to the existing one system is called multiple booting installations. A multiple boot lets you keep the previous operating system and installed applications.

Do not worry if you have lost your valuable data after OS reinstallation on your hard disk.
