Why We Need Format Recovery?

Computer users may need to format your hard disk sometimes when you want to convert the FAT File System to NTFS File System. Through formatting the drive, you can change the File System. You may just right-click the drive and choose "Format", and then selected "Quick Format", but after clicking "OK", you may be aware that another drive was formatted. The only solution to access your important files on the mis-formatted drive is to do format recovery.

Drive formatting is the process in which a new drive is fully prepared to store files. Formatting can be of two types:

  • Low-level formatting: it marks the surface of the disk with sector markers indicating the start of a recording block, which will set the disk to the factory condition, erasing all the previous data.
  • High-level formatting: it is also referred to as quick formatting that is file system format, which usually occurs during operating system installation, or when adding a new disk.

Users may forget to back up the important data and you may remind of it just after format. If so, do not hesitate to get reliable data recovery software to recover your files after format. Once your formatted partition is overwritten by new content, you will lose the chance to restore your important files and will never get them back. EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard, specializing in data recovery from various data loss conditions, can recover lost files after format safely and efficiently.
