Possibility to recover data from formatted disk

Actually, to unformat a disk is a highly technical task. If you accidentally format your disk, data recovery is possible. The reason is that a format only reset files system, it does not erase data on the disk; but remember: don't partition it again, don't format again, don't write files onto it and don't install Windows on it again. In this way, you are possible to unformat your data. The result of unformat disk mostly depends on following factors:

1. For FAT type file systems: file fragmentation is a major factor. Fragmented files are likely to emerge corrupted, and un-fragmented files will be fine. The format process destroys a number of important bookkeeping structures on a FAT type partition, the FAT (File Allocation Table) and the root directory. The absence of these structures makes recovery complicated.

2. For NTFS type file systems: fragmentation is of little consequence. The format process only re-initializes a part of the MFT and most of the MFT remains intact. Using the information stored in the MFT, even fragmented files can be recovered intact under the help of a unformat software.
