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.
Plunge this hard drive to your computer and download a formatted drive data recovery freeware that can easily restore your wanted data back from this formatted hard drive for free.
In fact, I find it as my hard drive is also accidentally formatted. It eventually restores all my needed photos, videos and files back successfully. It can be a good chance for you.
Just read more detailed information of this freeware here:

PS: Do not forget to back up everything important all the time in the future.

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

How To Recover My Data.?


Dear Rabeesh,

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.

Terrible happened ... disappeared all the important information from your flash drive or memory card!
What could be worse than the loss of information for someone who is constantly with her work? Accidentally formatted a memory card in the camera with interesting pictures are doing on vacation? Formatted USB-flash cards with very exactly what you want, but backup is left? All is not lost! Lost information can try to recover.

I have a wd elements external hard drive....My Pc no longer recognizes it. I have much of my vital info and project data saved on it. How do I fix it with out reformatting it .....ps I already reinstalled...


I had that prob ages ago. I fixed by doing a quick format. By quick formatting your drive is not wiped.
Once quick formatted do not put anything on the drive and run software recovery software of some sort.

It is very likely you will have to purchase that software unfortunately.

There may be other courses of action, this one did work for me though. Do remember if you do this that if your drive contained 320g of data you will need 320g of space free elsewhere to recover to.

Solution to recover files after formatting


There is a solution to recover formatted, deleted data recovery through a software called "Ontrack Easy Recovery" from this you can recover in RAW format also. Make sure after deleting or formatting the drive don't install any softwares or write other data. This will overwrites the traces of your old data. So you can't get back data completly.

Hope this will be usefull...

Thanks & Regards

How can i recover the data from my flash drive after forced to format


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


Those deleted data is still stored on the USB 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 this flash drive recovery program named asoftech data recovery, which can recover data after deeply scanning your USB drive to look for lost data you accidentally deleted or formatted.

Undelete/unformat a Mac formatted external hard drive.


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.

Follow this guide to unformat your mac hard drive or formatted external hard drive on mac.
