If some important data are lost due to formatting local drive, what corresponding measure will you take? Some users may think of professional data recovery companies for the sake of data recovery from formatted drive, which will cost much. There is another better solution, through which we can recover lost data in many common situations.
Data recovery from formatted drive
Formatting a hard drive is a process of rebuilding partition information like FAT, root directory, and boot record, so the new information will overwrite the original. Thus, the operating system can not find and show the original data according to the new information, but they are still stored at the same place. Therefore, we can recover data from the formatted drive before they are overwritten. And MiniTool Power Data Recovery, professional Windows data recovery software, is capable of data recovery from formatted drive. However, before recovering formatted data, we must not store any data to the formatted partition. Or formatted data will be overwritten and become unrecoverable.
