Accidentally erased very important data by using the Diskpart clean command!!

Last night I followed a stupid YouTube video tutorial on how to use DISKPART format and clean command to manage hard drive on my Windows 7 computer. I don't know where I made the mistake, anyhow, in the end, I lost quite a large amount of very important data on D drive soon after I execute DISKPART - Clean - Format. I can't figure out why but some photos and videos on E drive are also lost. Does data recovery software work? If yes, what should be the best choice if I want to completely recover data lost by DISKPART format and clean command? Thanks in advance.

DISKPART is an inbuilt command line hard drive partitioning utility that includes 38 different commands. By using DISKPART commands, people are able to manage both internal hard drive and external hard drive by adding, deleting, formatting, cleaning, creating and resizing partitions on Windows operating system.

Frequently Asked Qusetions

Windows · Mac
1. Why cannot I recover 2GB data for free?

It is recommended to check the version installed is Free or Trial because they are different versions.

Trial has data preview function but cannot save any files, while the Free version enables to recover 2 GB files. The default free space is 500 MB and you may share the product on social media to get another 1.5 GB.

2. Why cannot the recovered files be opened?

A file is saved as 2 parts on the storage device: directory info (which is comprised by file name, time stamp and size info, etc.) and data content.

If the files with original file names and folder structures cannot be opened, one possible reason is the corrupted directory info. There is still a chance to recover the data content with the RAW Recovery method in our software.

3. Why isn't it suggested to recover the files back to the original drive?

The storage structure of the lost files would be altered or damaged by any changes on the drive. If you save the recovered files back to the same drive, the original data structures and data content would be corrupted or overwritten, which causes permanent data loss. So you should prepare another disk to save the files.

The Free version helps you save 2GB files to better verify the recovery quality of our product before purchase.

5. How long does it take to scan the drive?
