As a very ordinary computer user, you may have heard a lot about disks and partitions, but you may be unfamiliar with partition table. All you can know directly is:
a). the disk is not working normally;
b). disk partition suddenly becomes inaccessible;
c). disk partitions are missing somehow.
To tell you the truth, those are closely related to a unit called partition table. So what is partition table exactly? It is actually a table maintained on disk by operating system to describe the partition layout on that disk. When partition table is deleted or damaged, corresponding disk partitions will be implicated. At this time, people will make every effort to find ways to recover partition table.
