Change RAW partition to NTFS or recover files from RAW



As an IT administrator, you may come across a situation where a partition that is formatted in the RAW file system needs to either be converted to NTFS or the files on it need to be recovered. This can be a tricky task for even the most experienced IT professionals. However, with the right tools and knowledge, you can successfully complete this task.

The first step in converting a RAW partition to NTFS or recovering the files on it is to determine the file system that was used to format the partition. There are several ways to do this, including using a third-party tool such as TestDisk or DiskDigger. These tools can help you determine the file system type, and can also help you recover lost files.

Once the file system of the partition is determined, you can proceed with either converting it to NTFS or recovering the files on it. To convert the partition to NTFS, you will need to use a tool such as MiniTool Partition Wizard. This tool will allow you to quickly and easily convert the partition to NTFS.

To recover the files on the RAW partition, you can use a tool such as Recuva. This tool can help you recover files from a variety of file systems, including RAW. Simply run the tool and follow the instructions to recover the files.

Once you have successfully either converted the partition to NTFS or recovered the files from it, you can then use a tool such as PartitionGuru to verify the file system type. This will ensure that the partition is correctly formatted and that the files have been successfully recovered.

It is important to remember that these steps should only be used as a last resort. If you have the ability to back up your files, you should do so before attempting to either convert the partition to NTFS or recover the files on it. This will ensure that if the process fails, you will still have access to your important data.

In summary, as an IT administrator, you may come across a situation where a partition that is formatted in the RAW file system needs to either be converted to NTFS or the files on it need to be recovered. The first step is to determine the file system type. Once this is known, you can either use a tool such as MiniTool Partition Wizard to convert the partition to NTFS or a tool such as Recuva to recover the files on it. Finally, use a tool such as PartitionGuru to verify the file system type. It is important to remember to back up your files before attempting to convert the partition to NTFS or recover the files on it.
