How to Recover Photos from a Twice Formatted Drive

I accidentally formatted my hard drive twice on my computer and thought there was a backup on my external hard drive. But I figured out there are no photo backups on it, so how can I recover these photos from a twice-formatted hard drive?

Data can still be restored even after formatting your storage hard disk twice. What matters is that no new data should be kept because doing so can lessen the likelihood of a successful recovery, even with the aid of specialized software. You can recover files and folders even after formatting the drive many times if your drive has not been overwritten with any fresh data.

EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard Pro is effective at recovering data from formatted drives since formatting simply deletes the file pointer of deleted data during the formatting process.

Formatted PC recovery is possible with this software. Download and install the EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard on your computer or laptop to recover data from a drive after repeated formats. Click "Scan" after selecting the drive from which you want to recover data after multiple formatting. It supports a quick scan, so you don't have to wait for a long time. Double-click any file to view recovered files, including documents, PPTs, Excel sheets, graphics, videos, and so on.

Windows has a built-in backup and restore option, and if you don't have a backup on your external hard drive, you should try to find backups in Windows File History. You can go to the System & Security menu and choose File History, and you can restore personal files from the sidebar. Then you can check whether your deleted photos are in the backups. If you find your photos, click the green "Recover" button to get back your precious photos.

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