Summary

Tutorial to recover files after quick format from hard drive/disk with quick format recovery software, which helps recover files after quick format under Windows 2000/XP/2003/Vista/2008/7/8.

People always ask "I reinstalled OS (over the old copy) using quick format, which has removed all my documents and pictures. Is there any way I can take to recover files after quick format?" Take it easy if you are experiencing data loss due to quick format. EaseUS hard disk recovery software always satisfies your needs of recovering files after quick format and frees you from data loss.

How does quick format work?

Quick format just wipes out the FAT table and deletes the file and directory information at the root of the partition. All the information (other than the FAT and technically the first character of the root entries) is still there. Full format does the same thing and then will scan all of the sectors on the disk. It does not in fact wipe out everything "out in the field" on the disk.

Just as it is said above, data area is still intact after format unless new data has overwritten them.
