I have accidentally formatted my partition drive f


Deleting or formatting won't make the data in computer hard drive erased permanently.

Those deleted data is still stored on the computer hard drive , it's just invisible or inaccessible. Only the FAT or NFTS table is erased (the information about where those data were saved), but the real data are still intact there in sectors of the hard drive.


So as long as those data are not overwritten by new data, it's highly possible to recover them. And the MOST Effective way is to rely on some format recovery programs.


Try asoftech data recovery program, which can recover data after deeply scanning your computer hard drive to look for lost data you accidentally deleted or formatted. download the software from link below

Lacie 1tb only showing n 30g room


Hey there,
A hard drive, especially a new one, might need to be formatted before use to show the proper amount of data available for use. Sometimes a hard drive might malfunction and not show the proper amount of free space. formatting should also solve this problem, Before you go and format your hard drive understand that by formatting it you will lose all data that is stored on it, so if you have anything important, take it off first.
here is a detailed guide to reformatting your hard drive based on your operating system

When i try to format my pc it asks me to select a drive and when i click on C:/ it tells me that the drive is damaged and cannot be formatted..whereas it shows me correctly about my othe drives...pls help...


You shouldn't ever format a drive unless you wish to destroy all data. If the drive is damaged, then it may NOT be able to be handled by normal software you may have to run data recovery software, there are many free types on the internet to download. to recover, any data that can be.
Usually C:\ is the Drive where the boot track and Windows, and data like in My Documents is kept, if this is formatted over, it will damage the data on this disc, rendering it useless.
If you wish to recover data you will as said have to find some other way. When all data is removed, or whatever, then the drive could be formatted for re-formatting, and re-installing of Windows.

Maxtor 80 gb portable hard drive copying problem


Unless the data on the maxtor is very important You should format the drive, assuming you are using windows, go to my computer, right click on the drive, it should show the option to format. If the info is very important, my advice take it to a info recovery business.

Pen drive display free space 0 byte and used space also 0 byte


Try formatting the drive. Assuming Windows XP, just open your "my computer" icon, right-click on the device and choose format. Be aware, formatting will remove any data you may have had on there previously.

If you're using another OS, or if it's an existing drive, please re-state your question giving further details (what OS, what you are trying to retrieve, etc).
