Tips to recover Windows Vista Files

Vista is a Windows operating system developed and marketed by Microsoft Inc in three variations like Home Premium, Professional and Ultimate. The code name before releasing Vista was “Longhorn” and released five years later than the release of its predecessor i.e. Windows XP. Windows Vista came with fully loaded new features along with many upgrades to existing ones like an updated graphical user interface and visual style dubbed Aero, detects hardware problems before they occur, redesigned search option, multimedia tools including Windows DVD maker, peer-to-peer technology to simplify file sharing, etc. Vista uses NTFS as default file system but do supports FAT to avoid the compatibility issues.

So in order to recover Windows Vista files you can use good data recovery software.

When it comes to hardware requirements, Vista needs minimum hardware resources and it is compatible with SATA, SCSI and IDE hard drives.

While creating new partitions in your hard drive using Disk management tool, operating system will ask to format the partition in order to install the files system, at this point of time if you say yes without taking the backup of files stored, then you will lose all the files.
