Extending File Causes Errors in Microsoft Windows Due to Fragmentation by hkksew3563rd


									?In Microsoft Windows, you can use the applications to extend the files as per your
requirements. But in some situations, when an application tries to extend the file, like
adding new record to existing database, the operation does not complete successfully.
At the same time, you may face error messages, such as 'file system limitation', 'disk
is full', or 'insufficient resources'. In such cases, when you restart your system, you
can not access your hard drive partitions and come across partition loss situations. At
this point, you are required to use Partition Recovery solutions to retrieve hard drive
partitions and stored data.
The problem can occur due to extensive disk fragmentation. If the fragmentation is
high, NTFS (New Technology File System) would use more space for storing the
description of allocations associated with fragments. Allocation information is saved
in one or more than one file records. If more than one file records are used, the file
record information is stored in ATTRIBUTE_LIST.
The fragmentation occurs when the file is extended (either by application or the NTFS
itself), but new data could not be placed into the clusters that are adjacent to other
clusters employed by file. The most frequent reason whey it occurs is that the
applications extend the file thousands or million times by small amount every time,
and the other files are being written at same time.
NTFS file system compression may also cause disk fragmentation. It causes frequent
reallocation, and in such cases it could be hard to keep the file data adjacent on the
drive. Extensive fragmentation or fragmentation to the file system table cause file
system corruption. It result into partition loss scenarios and need Windows Partition
Recovery to handle the situation.
If problem is caused by NTFS compression, disable it. It would free up the disk space,
which NTFS file system uses for describing the compression for file. In case of file
system corruption, format the hard drive and reinstall operating system. But this
method also removes the disk partitions, which requirePartition Recovery Software to
be retrieved.
The Partition Recovery applications are powerful enough to methodically scan entire
hard drive and extract all lost, missing and inaccessible Windows partitions. They
come equipped with interactive and simple graphical user interface and thus do no
require sound technical skills. The tools preserve integrity of your data as they have
read-only conduct.

absolute recovery. It recovers data from FAT32, VFAT, NTFS, and NTFS5 file system
partitions. The software is compatible with Microsoft Windows 7, Vista, 2003, XP,
