The following scenario illustrates a similar type of problem that can occur when suggested type of partitioning is not followed. You observe some partition issues on a Windows based computer. As a result, you use a third-party disk partition manager but the tool fails to perform the specific task. Additionally, you receive an error such as mentioned below:
'Init failed: Error 100 Partition table is bad'
The tool cannot proceed further after you receive this error message.
The error occurs when the partition manager cannot recognize the hard disk partitions. This specifically occurs when the partition table doesn't obey the standard rule of disk partitioning (as specified above). The same issue can also occur if the hard disk contains more than one active partitions.
To solve the above error, you need to follow the below steps:
Delete all the existing hard disk partitions
Recreate the partitions
Restore the deleted data from the last backup
There can be situations when the backup might fail or contain incomplete information. To deal with such problems, you are suggested to use a Partition Recovery Software that might recover the lost data from the corrupted, deleted and formatted hard disk partitions. The Windows Data Recovery utilities use specific scanning algorithms to examine the logically crashed drives and recover the lost data safely and easily.
