TestDisk – Photorec
Testdisk is an open-source utility that allows you to repair the tables on your disk partitions and recover the data stored on them. If your boot partition has been corrupted by a misuse or virus, you will be able to rebuild the damaged boot sector if it is a disk formatted in FAT12, FAT16 or FAT32. The boot sector restore function can also be used for an NTFS file system (not very useful on mac). The program queries the BIOS of your machine and it is the latter that will transmit the information about the connected disks and their partitioning status.
Testdisk can be used as a diagnostic tool to collect information about the damaged system and find a solution to the identified problem. The software is compatible with most file systems.
