What is Windows file system NTFS? The Windows NT file system (NTFS) provides a combination of performance, reliability, and compatibility not found in the FAT file system. It is designed to quickly perform standard file operations such as read, write, and search - and even advanced operations such as file-system recovery - on very large hard disks.
The knowledge of computing about ntfs volume is that the first information on an NTFS volume is the Partition Boot Sector, which starts at sector 0 and can be up to 16 sectors long. The first file on an NTFS volume is the Master File Table (MFT). If you format NTFS, what is gone or rebuilt? That is the MFT is gone.
As we know, a drive must be formatted before data storage and most of the times, people would like to do quick format, or complete format sometimes when doing disk partitioning enitialization. Formatting a volume with the NTFS file system results in the creation of several system files and the Master File Table (MFT), which contains information about all the files and folders on the NTFS volume.
If your NTFS has already been used for data storage and then it has not formatted error, there is trouble with your ntfs drive. What could be the trouble? Most of the times, your MFT is attacked by virus, it may have been adjusted by virus.
It is the mbr that is wrong when your NTFS file system shows RAW. What can you do to make it right? Some professional might alter the 0001 (for instance, that they know the right data and they can open the disk and change it manually.) But how can we ordinary PC users do? We probaly have to rely some software like iCare Format Recovery to do the trick by helping use restore files.
