Active Partition Recovery is a freeware toolkit that helps to recover deleted and damaged logical drives and partitions inside Windows, WinPE (recovery boot disk), and Linux (recovery LiveCD) environments. It can restore any deleted partition or logical drive (FAT, exFAT, NTFS, Apple HFS+, ApFS, FreeBSD UFS, Linux ExtFS, BtrFS ) additionally scan hard drives, and detect deleted partitions.

Simple QuickScan easily detects and recovers recently deleted partitions, as long as they were not formatted/overwritten after deletion.

Advanced low-level SuperScan might detect partitions that have been deleted a very long time ago, even if you have created new ones and even formatted them.

Last Chance recovery technique detects and recovers files by their signatures on volumes having severely damaged file systems, where physical volume recovery isn’t possible! Recovers NTFS/ReFS, FAT/exFAT.
