When you format a disk, the operating system erases all bookkeeping information on the formatted disk, tests the formatted disk to make sure all sectors are reliable, marks bad sectors (that is, those are scratched), and creates internal address tables for later use to locate information. Every Hard Disk should be formatted before use.

Do not panic if you accidentally reformat a disk that has useful data. Note that reformatting a disk does not erase the data on the disk, only the address tables. A computer specialist should be able to recover the most vital information from reformatted disk. You can also try using Windows data recovery software, to recover data from reformatted disk.
