How to Recover Data from Formatted Partition on Windows 10

I had some problems with my Windows 10, so installing a fresh Windows 10 on my laptop would be a good idea. I had a partition selected just for that. But I chose the wrong partition with my only backup of everything and formatted it. How to recover my data?

Suppose your Windows 10 have any backup programs, they will automatically back up your data, or you can check Windows Backup and Restore options. Connect an external hard drive, and put your backups in. Type Control Panel in the search box. After opening the Control Panel, click 'Backup and Restore'. Choose a safe location to restore data, and decide which backup you want to recover.

If this doesn't work, to recover data from formatted partitions, especially for essential data, it is recommended to use a professional data recovery tool EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard.
