Have you accidentally formatted the hard disk and lost your vital information? Looking to recover files after formatting hard disk? Worried about losing your important pictures, video, audio and text files? Don’t worry!!! Here is the complete solution to all your data loss problems after hard drive format. Use formatted drive recovery software to unformat disk drive in order to recover all the files and folders stored on the drive.

Formatting actually means preparing any storage medium, usually hard drive for reading and writing. When you format the hard drive the operating system erases all the stored information from the disk, tests the disk to make sure all the sectors of the disk are reliable, marks the bad sectors to avoid further data storage on them and finally creates the internal address tables which are used by the OS to locate the information.

Situations in which you might have formatted hard drive:

  • Formatting the hard drive under format error: At some point of time you might have encountered the error message like “The Disk Drive is not formatted. Do you want to format it now?”. In this situation if you click on “NO” button then same error message pops up which does not allow you to access the data. If you click on “YES” your drive gets formatted resulting in data loss.
  • Intentional formatting: The files stored on the hard drive may get corrupted due to harmful viruses. The logical drives become inaccessible if the virus infection is severe. In such cases when the user fails to remove the virus even after using powerful anti virus program then the only way to remove the virus is by formatting the hard drive. Formatting not only removes all the viruses from the hard drive, but it also wipes out all the data stored on the drive resulting in severe data loss. In addition to this users may also format the hard drive to get rid of hard drive corruption due to presence of bad sectors, re-partitioning errors, improper data access operations etc.
  • Re-installing operating system: If you want to upgrade the operating system or if you want to use the latest version of the operating system then you should re-install the OS. During the reinstallation of the OS you will be asked to format the drive. If you format the drive without taking the back up copy of the hard drive data then you may lose all the data. In such situation, you can recover formatted hard disk using formatted data recovery software.
  • File system corruption: File system organizes the data on the hard drive. If the file system of the hard drive gets corrupted due to operating system crash, errors during file system conversion, virus infection then the hard drive becomes inaccessible. In order to reuse the hard drive you need to format it. Formatting results in entire data loss if the user has not taken the back up copy of the data stored on the drive.

When you format the hard disk original files are not permanently removed, only allocation information is destroyed which makes the data inaccessible. The data still exists on the drive until you save or copy any new data over that storage area, because original information is overwritten by new files leading to permanent data loss. Therefore do not use the hard drive once it is formatted. In such cases make use of formatted data recovery software to get back critical data in simple mouse clicks. This software scans the hard drive sector by sector such that no files are left behind during scanning and recovery process. It is widely recommended by recovery industry experts capable of performing unformatted drive data recovery on both Windows and Mac operating system.
