When you are planning to convert the file system of your hard drives and don't know this operation will erase and format your hard drive, format the NTFS hard drive on your computer and find some important files lost on this hard drive, or attracted by a computer virus or malware, you will lose data accidentally. No matter what situations you face, you should stop using this hard drive and recover the lost files before overwriting them.

Normally users will back up files and folders to ensure they don't lose data after formatting. You can easily insert the hard drive, which stores the backup data and restore all the files and folders. Maybe you have enabled automatic backup on your computer with Windows Backup and Restore tools. Check if this built-in program has backed up the NTFS drive before. If you don't have a backup, there are two available methods for you:

  • Recover with Windows command-line recovery tool - Window File Recovery. This tool will help you use command lines to recover lost files and folders on your computer.
