Question about Hard Computers & Internet
I am asked to format the hard disk before i can use it.
Have already formatted this RAW format external hard disk? Have rescued anything reserved back yet? If not, you do get promising chance to recover data from this raw drive with the help of external drive RAW format recovery software which often can help deeply scan the assigned external RAW drive and get all possible recoverable stuffs back.
Here, read more RAW file system drive data recovery clues for you:

Don't use the drive at all until you are in a position to start a recovery scan.
To do this you need:
A working computer that you can attach this drive to as an extra.
Another drive (external or the boot drive) large enough to save any data
Appropriate software for the data recovery.
The software is the most difficult to specify as some are better at some recoveries than others. I have had some success with Pandora Recovery, available here:
or PC Inspector File Recovery, available here:-
There are many Recovery programmes out there, you may find another you feel happier with, but both the above have worked for me.
Once you have downloaded and installed the software to your computer, read the help/instructions carefully before you start.
Basically there are three steps to recovery :
Firstly a full scan of the affected drive. Be patient this can and often does take hours, especially with larger drives.
Secondly the programme compiles a list of the files it can recover, often with an estimate of the probability of the file being intact and usable after recovery.
Thirdly identifying those files you want to recover and telling the programme where to save them once recovered - NOT the drive you are recovering from.
Hope this is helpful, if so would you please register that with Fixya

I'm guessing that you've formatted hard drive partitions containing Windows 7. If so, the drive will eventually become RAW as it contains the system files and the OS.
You need to run the professional partition recovery software (http://goo.gl/5eEjN), capable to recover RAW partitions from your hard drive. Follow the link mentioned above and try the software. It comes in demo version, so you can try it for free and once assured, you can go for premium version to recover all your data.

1). Do not format this hard drive before you've recovered all your stored data back. In your case, the formatting process may erase everything on your drive and make your data gone permanently.
2). Never save anything new on this drive in case that any new file would rewrite your original data.
3). Plunge this drive to your computer and download a RAW drive data recovery freeware to get back all your lost data back:
This hard drive has helped many people around me restore their inaccessible data back from a RAW drive or memory card. It can also work perfectly on your drive.

5). Format this drive to see whether it is fixable.
