How do you recover data from a formatted drive?
After you format a drive, the operating system erases all information on the disk, tests the hard drive to make sure all sectors are reliable, marks bad sectors, and creates internal address tables that it later uses to locate information. You must format a disk before you can use it.
But reformatting a hard drive does not erase all the data on the drive, only the data on the partition tables. So, people cannot access the files; however, if you accidentally reformat a drive that has important data, such as videos, Office documents or photos, you may use Aidfile recovery for help.
This data recovery works on high-level formats, the type of formats that most users execute. In addition, hard disks have a low-level format, which sets certain properties of the disk, such as the interleave factor.
After you format your hard disk accidentally, you will be missing many important files, such as Word documents, PDF files, Excel sheets, photos, videos, letters, statements, etc. If a drive is formatted, you can select "Unformat" to scan. Also, you could select "Advance Scan" to find lost files by file type, or you can select "Recover partition" to scan if the partition size or partition position has changed by formatting the drive.
Aidfile has a free edition for you to recover 1G of files form formatted drive with no fee. Just download and try it.
