Recover Reformatted Hard Drive

Lost all precious data off your hard disk after a reformat and need to get it back?

The main reason behind reformatting the hard drive is to change the existing file system of the hard drive. When the hard drive is reformatted, the operating system removes all the existing files and folders in the hard drive and creates a new file system. For the timing consider a real life scenario where you are using a hard drive having Windows Vista installed in it. You wished to change the file system from FAT32 to NTFS for which you need to reformat it. However, after reformatting the hard disk successfully you realized that, there were some really important files in your hard disk which were lost due to formatting. You had not even take a backup of those files before reformatting the hard drive. The files really matter to you and are irreplaceable. Now even after successfully reformatting your hard disk, you are not satisfied. By this time you must have assumed that you completely lost those files. If you are thinking so, then you are completely wrong!!! Reformatting removes the files and folders from the hard disk and creates new file system but not permanently. Only access to the hard drive data is removed. You can use an effective tool like hard drive recovery tool to successfully execute reformatted hard drive recovery, for understand click here.

However, the only thing you need to take care of is that, the lost data on the hard disk should not be overwritten. This is because; no data recovery tool is capable to recover overwritten data.

Do not defrag the hard drive or do not install any data recovery tool in it.

Generally, the disk is formatted with FAT or NTFS file system in Windows operating system where as in Mac OS, the drive is formatted with HFS or HFS+ file system. Once a disk is formatted with a particular file system means it can be read only by the computer that is compatible with it. Therefore, if you want to use a Macintosh-formatted drive in Windows based computer or vice versa, then you will have to reformat the hard drive first. Mac computers can read most of the Windows formatted disks but to use a hard disk on Mac you need to reformat it with Mac compatible file system. The reformatting process just writes a new directory structure that enables the files to be overwritten by creating a blank disk. Though files on the hard drive remain intact to their original position, they cannot be traced by the operating system. Therefore the user thinks that the files are lost after reformatting from the hard drive forever.
