Hello , I have external hard disk 1TB i was divided to 4 partition and by mistake from bad program merged all partition and make like quick format what the best solution to get the information pack ??


For a start, you should remember (or learn) that files NEVER are deleted in a hard drive. When you format or repartition your hard disk, you only get deleted directories with the address to localise your files, similar to deleting the index of a book.
Try not to use your computer until you download and install a file recovery application. Use another computer if possible, because each time you use your computer, you are overwriting apparently free sectors wher you might have some lost files.
Download a USB resident recovery application. PORTABLE RECUVA might do it

Run you application from USB according to indication. to recover file types you are really interested: doc, mp3, txt, xls etc...
Good luck!

Yes and No... Apple file formats are not readable in a PC and vice versa except for file formats specifically made to work in both, such as Microsoft Office files (doc, xls, ppt, etc....) or a generic file type such as pdf, jpg, tif, gif, etc. So if its that type then YES.. otherwise No...
