[Photo Recovery] Forgot to Get Photos from Formatted Hard Drive

Hi there, I recently purchased a new computer, and when I was moving hard drives, I realized that I had some pictures on my desktop that weren't in my photos, and I had forgotten to retrieve them before formatting the hard drive. I know it might have discovered them all and that they were corrupted. Do you have any suggestions?

EaseUS software would like to provide you with two trustworthy pieces of advice before you begin the formatted hard drive recovery to stop further file loss:

  • Put the HDDs away. If you discover any deleted pictures or movies on the disks, stop using them immediately and unplug them.
  • To get assistance, download photo recovery software. Using expert photo recovery software, you may quickly restore photographs from inaccessible or formatted memory cards.

Here are the steps:

Step 1. Connect the formatted hard drive to your computer, and launch the EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard. After choosing the formatted disk, USB flash drive, or Pen drive to recover deleted files from, click Scan.

Step 2. After your formatted hard drive has been scanned, all scan results will be displayed on the screen. Use the Filter or File Type feature to find the formatted photos you want.

Step 3. Choose the deleted photos you want to recover from your formatted hard drive, then click Recover. A new box will appear where you can choose a different location to save the files. After that, click OK to confirm.

If you don't have a backup on your external hard drive, you should try looking for backups in Windows File History because Windows includes a built-in backup and restoration feature. You can recover deleted files from the sidebar by selecting File History from the System & Security menu.

Then you can determine if the backups contain the deleted photographs. If you locate your pictures, select 'Recover' from the green menu to get your priceless pictures back.

Use EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard to recover deleted or lost files easily and quickly.
