Formating my laptop

Hi,
I'm trying to format my laptop (satelliteA100-sk8) I have all the data I don't want to delete on drive D so I just need to erase all data on drive C. Using the recovery DVD I am asked if I want to do erase the default partition. Is the default partition the C drive? and if so, does that mean my D drive will be untouched?

Thank You

Yes the default is C... and No it wont remove D as long as it is a true Partition, and not a "virtual" drive.......

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

Why can't you format the usb? What type of message are you getting when you try to format the usb?

Ok, try this, forget formatting, just delete everything off the usb.

You could open the usb and click Edit/Select All the click Edit/Delete. It will wipe everything off just like formatting.

Can photos be retrieved after the computer has been reformatted?


Yes you can recover photos even after formatting the drive with the help of recovery software. You can download a good photo recovery tool from http://www.photo-recovery.net/. I have used it twice with 100% result. the good thing is that the recovered pictures have the same properties as they were before deletion.

Don't be panic. you can try some data recovery software. You can see
http://www.asoftech.com/articles/recover-deleted-files-after-format.html
It tells the steps how to perform data recovery.

If above does not work, you may have to format the usb drive (use quick format), and then use above mentioned software to scan again the usb drive and recover your files.

Memory card formatted but data not deleted


Try not using Quick format. Format doesn't delete data it just removes the index from the filing system so you don't see it and the computer can write on top. Google "delete data free program" on WWW and download a proper programme that deletes the contents of the card and then try formatting - you'll get better results.
GOOD LUCK

Repair harddisc have data change from ntsf format to fat


If you in fact formatted your HDD you need to take the drive to a drive recovery center or get the tools to hook the drive up to a working laptop/desktop and use recovery software like Ontrack Recovery Manager.
