The purpose of recovery partition is to save data of a computer that can be later recovered at the time of system failure or corrupt operating system. It is effective and faster than a fresh operating system installation.

What is recovery partition?

Recovery partition is an attempt to restore the lost partition while attempting to install the operating system on the existing partition. This problem normally arises as when the user tries to update the existing operating system or re-install the operating system upon the currently installed operating system. Partition loss occurs if you try to rewrite the current operating system without removing the existing files. Sometimes the hard disk drive within the Dell Inspiron 15 shows less than the actual storage space. The data stored in this situation gets lost. The idea of repairing the operating system files without formatting the data on existing partition is wrong as it will damage the system and data too.

How it works in Dell Inspiron 15

Dell Inspiron 15 without asking the user makes a separate storage space within the main drive where the old operating system files and data are kept. However, the recovery of partition is not guaranteed, as if the user while accepting to replace the existing operating system files overwrites the files.

How to recover corrupted partitions?

There is no technical way to restore the lost partition unless in the case the data on the lost partition can be retrieved. The data could only be retrieved in the case if the user has not formatted the operating system partition. If you have done this and there are no partitions shown you have to format the hard disk and there is no way than to save your data. Then you will have to make new partitions and install the operating system from the beginning. However, if you feel the disk space is showinging some data but you are unable to access it, then contact experts to help you.
