OK! Don’t worry! Have you saved anything new on this formatted drive since then?
In fact, nowadays, the formatting process will not actually erase all the contained data on formatted drive as we think. These deleted files are still there and become invisible. So, act carefully to get these deleted files back:
Stop using this drive right now in case that any new file on it may overwrite your deleted files.
Plunge this drive to your computer.
Download a formatted drive data recovery program to retrieve all your lost files back. In these days, there are many data recovery programs designed to help the user restore his wanted data back easily. However, not all of them can work as efficiently as we hope. So, you are supposed to pay much more attention to it and select a most proper one for your drive.
But, if you still doubt, some data recovery freeware, which always works much more efficiently than some paid ones, can be your good choices, such as Recuva, TestDisk and iCare Data Recovery Free, etc.
- Do not save or back up all the restored data on the same drive in case of any data loss.
Note : In the future, you should learn a lesson to back up everything important at least on two different drives in case of similar data recovery problems.
