“Hi, I have an extended partition on my Mac system that made it possible for having many logical drives as per my requirement. So that I created four drives, one each for saving my personal files, operating system files, entertainment files like videos and audio files in one drive, official files in one drive respectively, which made me easy to recognize and access files. Everything was fine till yesterday evening, but today morning when I turned on my system, I was shocked as one of the drive was not showing up on my PC. I have stored lots of important files on that drive and also I don’t have backup. Can anyone suggest me how to recover data from extended partition? Thank you…!”
On any computer users can have maximum of four logical drives. But by having extended partition users can create more than four drives. Extended partition will enclose logical drives and the number of drives that can be created completely depends on free memory space available on the system. We can create logical drives of different size and resize the existing drives in extended partition. While taking the advantage of extended partition, users may face a situation as mentioned above.

- Partition may go unrecognizable by operating system due to file system corruption or corruption in the partition table containing information of file system type
- Files from extended partition gets deleted due to accidental formatting while installing or reinstalling operating system
