Before introducing how to unformat hard drive, you should first figure out that when format recovery is possible. Format is a Microsoft DOS command. It's a command line you can run to remove information from a hard disk, floppy disk, etc. There are two kinds of format as bellows:
Low-level format involves the creation of the actual structures on the surface of the media that are used to hold the data.
High-level format is the process of creating the disk's logical structures such as the file allocation table and root directory. There are also two ways: quick format and full format. Their difference is that full format will use the chkdsk command to scan the bad sector and remove the table while quick format just removes the table.
When you format a hard drive/disk, you will lose everything on the drive, no matter which format method you adopt. Therefore, it is very important to back up everything you might need later. However, if you do not have a backup file, you still have chances to unformat or recover formatted hard drive to retrieve your files in the form of high-level format.
