How to recover lost Mac partition?

What is partition?

Partition means the division of a computer's processors, memory, and storage into multiple sets of resources so that each set of resources can be operated independently with its own operating system instance and applications. The number of logical partitions depends on the model and size of the Hard Disks. Through logical partitions hard disks can be divided into several parts.

Like any other Operating System, Macintosh system also consists of local partitions or logical drives such as:
  • HFS+ (Hierarchical File System)
  • HFS (Hierarchical File System)
But these Partitions may get lost, missed or corrupt due to some common reasons like hard drive crash, uncertain system shutdown, viral attacks, power surge, software corruption, file system corruption. Due to partition loss, important data stored on those partitions may become inaccessible which may create many hardships to the persons who are depending on those data.

When huge blocks of data are lost due to partition damage how do we then recover the information and restore full capability to our hard drive? Is a lost HFS+ partition recoverable?
