2. Why we can unformat hard drive?

When you format hard drive, the Operating System resets the FAT or MFT on the disk. The reason that you can no longer see the files under Windows is that the MFT tells the Operating System that the drive letter does not contain any files, but the files are still where they were. That's why we could unformat a disk. The "unformat" means to transfer the files on the formatted hard drive or partition to a separate one.
