How to Recover Deleted Data from an Accidental Formatted Partition

I plugged in the wrong USB drive with 5TB of valued data. It was a single-partition drive, but then it was formatted in half with one partition and one unallocated space. Data recovery software can only scan the partition or unallocated space, but not both simultaneously. Would formatting the unallocated space into a cell and merging the two partitions improve the odds of recovering intact files since all possible recoverable data points will now be found in a single scan?

You can choose to make the unallocated partition space instead. It is hoped to minimize data loss by reestablishing the partition. Because the computer hard drive or external hard drive was formatted by mistake. The data on the formatted partition is inaccessible. The format error warning will appear when you use a hard drive or a USB device. The first rule is that no new data should be saved on the formatted hard drive, or the data will be overwritten.

Get sophisticated formatted partition recovery software to assist you in recovering files after formatting a partition or hard drive. And the copy you did is the partition's final sector. Normally, I would expect you to be able to restore the majority, if not all, of your files. However, some bad corruption may occur if parts of the file have been rewritten.

Partition formatting builds a file system on the drive, allowing the system to store and access files. You should format the partition or volume on hard drives or other storage devices for your operating system to use and recognize a specific file system.

Your deleted data and folders can be recovered from a formatted partition or disk. Formatted file recovery is still possible even if you unintentionally format the entire drive. However, you may wonder how this structured data can still be recovered.

Fitting a partition just deletes the file entries in the root directory and the file allocation tables. As a result, all file data on the device is not erased. Because the entries for those files have been erased, the operating system cannot access the accompanying data. It labels these sectors, taken up by formatted data, as free. New data is written over these newly indicated portions.

To accomplish the task, we recommend EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard, which is effective and dependable in formatted file recovery, particularly when scanning and recovering files from formatted hard drives, partitions, USB flash drives, SD cards, memory cards, and other Windows-compatible storage devices.
