How to recover data from hard disk after format

While you think your data is gone forever, experienced data recovery experts know how to get your files back!

When the hard drive has been formatted accidentally or due to any other reasons and you lost your data, there is still hope to restore files. Understanding the dangers and following what actions to be taken help to ensure successful recovery of missing files after hard disk format.

So the very first thing you need to do is to shut down the computer, or device immediately after the disk format. The reason for doing so is constantly being written to the drive when the operating system is running.

The one thing that can harm your chances of successful recovery!

Well, there are many reports regarding the possibilities of recovering formatted files. All these things point to the fact that in order to retrieve deleted files from any part of operating system or any other device, they must not have been written over.

“Recovery of files from formatted hard disk is possible as long as you avoid data overwriting.”

When quick format is done, it doesn’t really erase the data, so the files are not permanently lost. Instead it removes it from the MFT (Master File Table) entry, and the sectors that holds the data referring to the deleted file and now your operating system will consider that space as available to write new data.

If at all the data is written to any sectors that will result in a corrupt file or at worst, you can never recover lost files from formatted drive.
