Recover Data After Full Format of Hard Disk

I unintentionally formatted all the drives on my laptop while trying to install Windows XP. Now, only the C drive with its 300GB of total capacity is displayed. I need the information on the hard drive. Is it feasible to recover it?

We know your computer does not have an operating system on it because your Windows XP installation is not finished. It would be necessary to temporarily install the drive on another machine that already has an OS and the recovery software.

Fortunately, even if you format your laptop or computer, you still can recover your data because it is still there on the hard drive, and you simply don't have access to it. This means that you can recover the files from your formatted hard drive as long as you have a strong hard disk recovery program.

EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard is a kind of product that focuses on data recovery and supports formatted PC recovery. After connecting your hard drive to another computer, you can recover data on the hard drive with this safe tool:

1. EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard should be downloaded and launched. Click "Scan" after selecting the hard drive that you unintentionally formatted.

2. You should now wait for the scanning to complete so that all of the lost files and folders can be listed. To locate your files quickly, utilize the filtering option.

3. View the deleted files. Click "Recover" after choosing the items you want to restore. Click "OK" after deciding where to put the files.

By the way, almost everyone has experienced data loss at some point. It's always preferable to prevent data loss than to try to recover the data after a tragedy. You should frequently back up your computer to reduce the likelihood of total data loss.

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