We all know that all our files in computers are saved inhard drives. And a typical hard drive is partitioned into at least two differentsections. So you can run two operating systems (such as Windows XP and Windows7) in your hard drive, although most hard drives are divided to createdifferent file systems within the drive itself. Generally, hard drivepartitions will be formatted using either the FAT or NTFS file system.

However, when partitioning a hard drive or restoringsystem, one of partition is formatted by mistakes, which means all your fileswill be wiped out! Well, if you haven'tforgotten to make backup for all your data, you are luck! But wait, I have nobackup! What can I do? Is it possible to recover data from formatted partition?Don't worry! The answer is- Yes! You canrecover data from formatted partition by yourself! Here's how to retrievethe lost data.

What'llhappen to my partition after I format it?
Formattingyour partition does not make your data on it really erased. It only deletes theinformation about your files on the address table. And all your data are stillthere. They're just invisible or inaccessible. This means that the files areconsidered to have been erased permanently on the partition can still berecovered. However, just take note that once you save new files in theformatted partition, theses files will be written over the files you want torecover.

There are ways to recover data from formatted partition.
Recovering datafrom formatted partition is easy to do with partition recovery software. Thereare numbers of partition recovery tool available such as Tenorshare DataRecovery (for Windows), Recover Datafor Mac (for Mac). These partition recovery program can recover dataafter deeply scanning your hard drive to look for lost data from the formattedpartition and locate data found on it. Within a few clicks, you can recoverformatted partition.

And you also cantake your hard drive to a recovery office where supply datarecovery service. But let's hope not because it will cost you a lot of money (usuallycost you $1000) and whether they can recover data is not guarantee.

About a month ago I lost all my pictures, favorites and had to reload my Norton. Everything is still in the computer somewhere, only I don't know what happened or how to find and get them back. Please help...


You can often successfully recover deleted files from a PC, it all depends on what has happened since the files were deleted.
When you delete files the data itself isn't deleted, just the index entry that tells the system where the data for those files is located. The area containing the deleted data is also now marked as free space so it is available for any new files to be written there instead.

If and when that happens, then it is too late to recover your deleted files so it is very, very important to not save any new files or data to the device concerned.

One of the easiest ways to see if you can recover deleted files is to try some good file recovery software. One I used to use is this data recovery program which you can download from site below

First of, let me give thanks before hand to any one that can help me. I am somewhat of a geek so, i have tried a few things to fix my computer but nothing is working. It all began with boxes showing up...


Yes, your recovery discs will re-partition your hard drive. As long as they were created from your computer or bought from HP direct. This will however lose any software and files you have put on the system since you bought it. Beware!! :)

Verbatim external drive 500mb prevents bootup


Try changing the boot sequence in your CMOS setup, set your Main hard drive(I think it's IDE 0) and the rest is up to you whethere you will set the CD-ROM or the external HDD as the 2nd boot device. Once the computer starts just press DEL(most generic computers but for brand specific check the manual on how to access it) to enter the CMOS Setup.

Verbatim 250GB External Hard Disk not recognized by PC


Almost always, when a USB drive doesn't assign a drive letter in MY Computer the issue is a Mapped network drive using the drive letter the USB drive is attempting to use.

With the drive connected, open DISK MANAGEMENT find the USB Drive, right click it and assign it an available drive letter.
