Data loss after format
“Is it possible to undelete files after format? I used the “quick format” option and now I cannot access that drive. Did I lose all my files stored on it? Is there any way that will undelete files from the formatted drive?” This may also happen to you if you are a computer user. And for this situation, the success of formatted files recovery depends on whether your formatted data is overwritten.
Generally, files lost after “quick format” are recoverable, because the area on the disk after “quick format” containing the data is merely marked as avail (in whatever file system structure the format uses), and retains the old data until it's overwritten.
So, for this situation, here comes how to undelete after format. Data recovery software, like EASEUS Data Recovery Wizard, will offer you a safe and simple way to undelete files after format and find your formatted files back. You can not only undelete files after formatting the hard drive, but also unformat files from external ZIP/USB drive, removable SmartMedia, Memory Stick, SD Cards, etc. under Windows.
What you cannot do!
Certainly, as mentioned above, to undelete after format to a large extent, you must obey the following rule: Do not make any change to the formatted disk (bad device). That is to say:
Do not try to delete folders or files from the Bad Device, even if you are able to see them and think that they are not damaged.
Do not try to save anything to the Bad Device.
Do not attempt to format or re-partition the Bad Device, not even with a program like fdisk or format. If the support people for these or any other applications tell you it's OK to format or re-partition the Bad Device, do not listen to them.
If not, you will risk a permanent data loss after format.
