"Hello, I have two WD SATA hard drives used on my Windows 7 computer. One is 1TB and the other is 3TB. Both of them have helped me hold many important computer files. However, about a month ago, my computer seemed to be damaged somehow and always froze frequently. Hence, I searched a lot overt the internet about the similar computer problems and finally decided to upgrade the computer Windows 7 to remove the PC problems. However, I did not know whether I did have done something wrong. After that computer OS upgrading, computer just could not boot up any longer. And then, to let the computer boot up effectively as before, I reinstalled the Windows 7 and got an empty drive partition at last. Do you know what’s going on with my WD SATA hard drives? What Can I do to recover data from drive partition right now? Thanks for any advice here!"

Overall, no matter whether you do have rewrite the same drive partition with your OS updates or not, merely download the related data recovery tool to scan and find your needed partition files back as many as possible.
