You must have installed software that probably came with the portable hard drive to back up or sync files. The backup/sync option is doing just that on your back up drive. Open the software you installed and tell it not to delete files that you delete on your computer.

Hello , I have external hard disk 1TB i was divided to 4 partition and by mistake from bad program merged all partition and make like quick format what the best solution to get the information pack ??


For a start, you should remember (or learn) that files NEVER are deleted in a hard drive. When you format or repartition your hard disk, you only get deleted directories with the address to localise your files, similar to deleting the index of a book.
Try not to use your computer until you download and install a file recovery application. Use another computer if possible, because each time you use your computer, you are overwriting apparently free sectors wher you might have some lost files.
Download a USB resident recovery application. PORTABLE RECUVA might do it

Data Recovery Software Free Download


Download free data recovery software here to take lost or deleted computer, camera or mobile phone data back from hard drives, USB drives and SD memory cards after unexpected delete, shift delete, format, reformat, CHKDSK RAW drive errors, not formatted drive or card errors, virus damage, computer corruption or drive or card corruption and more known or unknown data loss troubles.
Data Recovery Software to Recover Hard Drive or USB Drive Files 
Generally, when your computer internal hard drive, external hard drive, USB portable hard drive or USB drive with many important PDF/DOC/PPT/EXCEL/TEXT documents, photos, audios, movies, apps, games and the like files are wiped or formatted or reformatted completely due to virus attack, drive RAW file system errors, drive unformatted errors or drive corruption problems, etc, or when your computer hard drive partitions data is lost due to accidental delete, shift delete or Recycle Bin emptying, do not spend treasure time in blaming yourself for preparing no hard drive data backup elsewhere in advance or depressingly suffering from giving up all very, very important information after data loss cases. In such situations, as long the original computer hard drive or USB flash drive is not overwritten by new files, the deleted or lost drive files are still able to be retrieved back with data recovery software. So, stop using your drive after delete or format and select a file recovery tool over the internet.
Data Recovery Software to Retrieve Android Phone SMS, Photos, Contacts and Data
If you unfortunately lose android cell phone SMS, photos, contacts and more data stored on a memory card that used inside this android mobile after a factory reset, security wipe, format or virus infection, or if you do have deleted very important android phone Micro SD or SD memory card games, apps and files since you do have accidentally erased mobile DCIM folder or the likes, do not rush to save new SMS, contact or file on this phone memory card and merely download data recovery software to scan this deleted, formatted, not formatted or RAW format phone memory card to see whether your phone information is still recoverable.
Please Note: Any data recovery software out there always helps scan and recover data that has been saved on the phone memory card, not phone internal memory. So, always save very, very important phone data on phone SD or Micro SD card, not phone internal memory. 
Data Recovery Software to Rescue iPhone Pictures, Videos and Files
When you are stuck in some iPhone photo, video and file loss troubles, there are often two clues for you: firstly go check your Google account to see whether all your lost or deleted information is synced there and is able to be copied back directly. And then, secondly, also download and apply data recovery software to scan the memory card of your iPhone or iPad to get lost data back.
But, if you never save data backups on other storage device and Google account, and also have not used a phone memory card, your data often will be permanently lost or deleted once you perform a deleting or formatting process there.
Data Recovery Software to Get Lost Camera Photos and Videos Back
If your camera photos and videos are lost because your camera memory card says: "the card is not formatted. Do you want to format it now?", because you mistakenly delete camera card folders or do a format there or because your camera memory card is blank or has unsupported file system, also do not panic and plunge this camera memory card to your Windows PC and see whether data recovery software is able to rescue your lost images, videos and files back with success.

Missing photos


Did you delete the photos from your computer after they went into Time Machine backup? Time Machine backs up the current version of your computer, so deleting from computer= deleting from backup. Open Time Machine application, skip back to when you might've deleted the photos, try recovering from there.

I deleted all the memory in the flash drive, its a 2 gb, but it tells me that theres only 41mgb in it.


Try emptying you trash on the computer that you deleted the information on. Or recycling bin depending on the type of computer. When you "delete" the information from the flash drive, it does not permanently delete it until the "Trash" is emptied.

How do I delete pictures that I have downloaded from my camera to my computer. I am a first time user.


Without knowing what kind of camera you have, this will be sort of a generic explanation, and I'm going to assume your computer runs on Windows.

You can delete pictures from the camera one at a time using the camera's controls - the exact procedure varies from one camera to the next, and you'll need to consult the manual. But it's easier and faster to delete them while the camera (or its memory card) is connected to the computer.

If you connect the camera to the computer with a USB cable, the camera will appear like a portable drive. Same goes if you take the camera's memory card out and plug it into a reader on the computer. Just open Windows Explorer or My Computer and look for the new drive. It will probably be drive E or higher. Then you can delete files the same way you delete any other files from a hard drive.
