What is raw file system?

File system is the main component of any operating system like Microsoft Windows. It is responsible for managing files and directories on your hard drive. It is very prone to failure and it may render all of your hard drive partitions invisible and inaccessible. At the same time, your computer may become unbootable and all the stored data becomes inaccessible. When a it got damaged, the file and drive becomes RAW. In such cases, you need to go for Partition Recovery solutions to retrieve missing, lost or inaccessible hard drive partitions and stored data.

CHKDSK (short for "check disk") is a system tool in DOS, OS/2 and Windows. It verifies the file system integrity of a volume and fixes logical file system errors. It is similar to the fsck command in Unix. On Windows NT operating systems, CHKDSK can also check the disk surface for bad sectors and mark them. (In MS-DOS 6.x and Windows 9x, this is a task done by Microsoft ScanDisk.) Windows Server version of CHKDSK is RAID-aware and can fully recover data in bad sectors of a disk in a RAID-1 or RAID-5 array if other disks in the set are intact. CHKDSK can be run from DOS prompt, Windows Explorer, Windows Command Prompt or Recovery Console.

RAW recovery means to read files without reference to an operating system. So after using RAW recovery function to scan the hard drive, the list of lost files will be displayed in a tree according to the file type. The RAW scan mode can locate the files without the aid of file system.
