TestDisk is a powerful free data recovery software which was primarily designed to help recover lost partitions and/or make non-booting disks bootable again when these symptoms are caused by faulty software, certain types of viruses or human error (such as accidentally deleting your partition table). TestDisk is available for lots of operating systems, including Linux, Windows, and MacOS, and supports lots of filesystems.
This article is meant as a short introduction to TestDisk; if you want to learn more about TestDisk and what it can do for you, you should refer to the TestDisk documentation.
