Asked by Shree Kumar Sin YAHOO. Answers


We all know that all our files in computers are saved inhard drives. And a typical hard drive is partitioned into at least two differentsections. So you can run two operating systems (such as Windows XP and Windows7) in your hard drive, although most hard drives are divided to createdifferent file systems within the drive itself. Generally, hard drivepartitions will be formatted using either the FAT or NTFS file system.

However, when partitioning a hard drive or restoringsystem, one of partition is formatted by mistakes, which means all your fileswill be wiped out! Well, if you haven'tforgotten to make backup for all your data, you are luck! But wait, I have nobackup! What can I do? Is it possible to recover data from formatted partition?Don't worry! The answer is- Yes! You canrecover data from formatted partition by yourself! Here's how to retrievethe lost data.

What'llhappen to my partition after I format it?
Formattingyour partition does not make your data on it really erased. It only deletes theinformation about your files on the address table. And all your data are stillthere. They're just invisible or inaccessible. This means that the files areconsidered to have been erased permanently on the partition can still berecovered. However, just take note that once you save new files in theformatted partition, theses files will be written over the files you want torecover.

There are ways to recover data from formatted partition.
Recovering datafrom formatted partition is easy to do with partition recovery software. Thereare numbers of partition recovery tool available such as Tenorshare DataRecovery (for Windows), Recover Datafor Mac (for Mac). These partition recovery program can recover dataafter deeply scanning your hard drive to look for lost data from the formattedpartition and locate data found on it. Within a few clicks, you can recoverformatted partition.

And you also cantake your hard drive to a recovery office where supply datarecovery service. But let's hope not because it will cost you a lot of money (usuallycost you $1000) and whether they can recover data is not guarantee.

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.

Hard Drive lost capacity


You cannot just 'loose' most of the capacity on a hard drive unless you have some serious issue and if that was the case, I would not even recommend you using it! What I suspect, because of its size, is that you are only seeing one of the formatted (recovery) partition. In order to use the rest of the hard disk, with the proviso that you want to keep the existing small partition, you need to create and format additional partitions. This is not a trivial task, but the following is the summary on where to find the facility: Control Panel -> Admistrative Tools -> Computer Management -> Disk Management -> Your Hard disk will be displayed with all existing partitions: after which you can use the context menu to delete/create partitions, Format partitions and assign a drive letter so that you can use the formatted partitions. Hope it helps: let me know how you go!

Have a travel mate 2423wxci preinstalled windows xp home edition. Have formated the hard drive but can't find the recovery disk. How do I get one?


Hi,

Did you format the whole drive?

If you didn't fully format the drive then the Recovery Partition could still be intact.

Start the laptop up and at the splash screen keep tapping F10 or ALT+F10 and if the Recovery Partition is intact the laptop will start the recovery process, if you get a message say BOOT EXECUTE/NO then the partition is not there.

You have 2 options now:
  1. Call Acer and get a set of recovery disc's, will cost approx between £20-60 for a set of discs.
  2. Buy a copy of XP home edition and then download all the drivers for your hardware.
Thanks

To reformat toshiba p300-1cn without recovery discs??


If you do not have a recovery partition, you will need to have some sort of bootable disc with an operating system on it. The reasoning behind this is that your computer cannot format a hard-drive it is currently running off of unless the hard-drive is partitioned and your OS is running on a partition that is not being formatted. I would recommend either getting windows recovery disks, or a copy of Ubuntu or such free Linux distributions for this action. After your Laptop is formatted it will have no Operating system and will not work until one is installed on it.
