It is possible that a file from the reformatted hard drive can be restored easily, especially if you haven't been storing files on that drive again since you formatted it, and if you chose a "quick" format option (and not a "secure" or thorough format, which in some cases overwrites every byte on the whole drive before setting up the new filesystem).

More than once, I've salvaged whole collections of deleted files from a newly reformatted drive just by letting TestDisk find an intact copy of the old directory structure and then copying the files to another drive. If you're not so lucky, PhotoRec might still find the file if it wasn't fragmented and hasn't been overwritten. Good luck!

Use getbackdata for windows
Advanced Data Recovery Software Programs to Get Back Deleted Data

reformat that drive again first and important is to set your partition active to the drive letter exact to what it was before it must be FAT or NTFS with the same active partyitionscheme as before use the getbackdata to recover an image of the output to a clean harddisk with some larger data storage external on your computer for the data output.
If not formatted you cannot get the images from it important how it was formatted is the most important thing reformatting will not destroy the data but will match the program how to handle the data to recover , beware never do not set the output to the same drive where you recover the data from .

IF you used linux photorec or dd rescue or other several tools are there to use,

How many times a harddisk can be formatted?


The ram, processor and the motherboard will not be affected, but the hard disk will be eventually. The hard drive will be affected but in a slight way. Try to make a recover image for your O.S.

I formatted my hard drive somehow and cant access windows, how can i get into my hard drive? compaq presario 2100 laptop


If you formatted your hardrive you don't have windows anymore. The format erased it. You'll need to get your Windows CD out and re-install.

Pc suddenly requires my western digital to be formatted


The drive is likely failing; Windows is unable to located a boot record for the drive and therefore it wants to format it in order to continue; trying it on a 2nd pc confirms this.
It may be possible to use a utility such as Data Doctor's Data Recovery to recover the data but it's going to cost some $$.
You can check out the utility at http://www.software.com/view/8432/0/data-doctor-windows-data-recovery-software
I've used this in the past to recover data from drives that were overwritten; and to undelete files that were lost when someone accidently deleted a user's windows profile.
Hope this helps! good luck!

I cannot find my XP disks and I am not sure my laptop came with installation disks. I want to reformat my laptop is there a way I can do that without the disks?


To reformat is to wipe everything off of your computer's harddrive. If you do not have the Recovery Disks, or an Installation Disk, you will be sitting there with a blank harddrive, and no operational computer.

I just wanted to explain that.

Most people want to restore their computer to what it was like from Day 1, when it came from the factory. For your Toshiba this is, "Recovering the original factory image"

Before you start, you may want to save any documents you have, in your My Documents folder. (My Pictures, My Music, My Video, Documents)
Burn your personal documents off to a CD, or DVD disk.
AFTER you restore back to the original factory image, they WON'T be there anymore.

Your Toshiba has a recovery partition on the harddrive.
Most computers do not have the Recovery Disks sent with them.
Saves the computer manufacturer money. They found that most users do not use the Recovery Disks, and would rather use a repair shop.

They also put the Recovery Partition on the harddrive. Plus the user is asked if they want to make a backup, (Recovery Disk), when they receive the laptop, and start it for the first time.
Problem is you are only asked once.

To recover back to the original factory image:
1.Laptop off. Press and hold down the 0 (Zero) key. Press the Power On button.

2.The Toshiba Recovery Wizard screen should appear.

3.Click on the empty circle to the left of -> Recovery of Factory Default Software.
(DO NOT click on Erase the Hard Disk!)
Click on Next

4.Click the circle for -> Recover to out-of-box-state
Click on Next

5.You'll see a warning message, "All data will be lost during the recovery process"

That's the data, (Information), you have in your My Documents folder, plus any programs you downloaded, or installed.
If they weren't there when the laptop came from the factory, they will be gone.
You know this, it's okay.

You are recovering, (Restoring), your laptop back to what it was like when it came from the factory.

Click on Next. This will start the recovery process. When it is finished a message will come up, and state that the HDD has been recovered. (HarDDrive)

Press on any key. You are finished.

Picture Error


Hi, It is possible that the memory of your camera got corrupted. You can try and format the memory and see if it will clear any errors and make the memory (card) available for use of the camera. Should you want to try and recover any images stored in the memory card, it has to be a removable one that you can plug in to a card reader attached to a PC. Run data recovery software to hopefully recover whatever you can from the memory. You can also format the memory with your PC and use a disk checking utility to check for any other errors. Thereafter, if things are ok, it will be ready for use of the camera. Hope this be of some use to you. Post back how things went or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards.
