Question about Computers & Internet
Unknowingly someone has formatted one of my drives which contains vital data is there any method for recovering the data
note: no new files have been added to this drive
OK! Don't panic! Nowadays, the formatting
process will not actually erase the contained data on a memory card or hard
drive. They are still there and only become invisible. That'd why one always
has chances to get back their deleted data back from a formatted hard drive as
long as they are not overwritten by anything new.
So, I hope you've not saved anything new on your hard drive to overwrite your vital data.

Formatting a drive only resets the FAT (File Allocation Table), where
it stores the information about the files on the drive. You need to get
a utility that can read the data directly from the drive, bypassing the
allocation tables. There are many available, most are not free.
Try going to TuCows.com, they are sure to have the utility you need. Be sure not to write any new files to the drive and you should have no problem in recovering your data. Search for: Formatted Drive Recovery

The theory to unformat a Mac hard disk is, when you format a Mac HFS+/HFSX Volume or format a external hard disk, the data are not really wiped. Format process just marked your Mac hard disk as available to reuse, no matter it is quick format or complete format. So if you put if you fill in a mount of new data to your hard drive, then the formatted data are overwritten, your will permanently lose your formatted data.
