Worry about being unable to recover data from reformatted hard drive for 2-3 times? Please don't. You can apply EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard to recover everything on a hard drive that was formatted in Windows for several times.

Could Data Be Restored from a 2-3 Times Reformatted Hard Drive?

"I wonder if a hard drive was formatted and then reformatted again, will the erased data be recoverable? I did format about 2-3 times for my Windows 10 computer hard drive due to some unknown spyware, viruses and security issues. About hundreds of family photos were completely wiped out, without a backup."

Once a hard drive, memory card, USB flash drive and other storage drives are infected by virus or malware, most of the time, we choose to do a quick format to get rid of the bad infection. Of cause, there are still many reasons for people to format a hard drive, perhaps, formatting more than once. For example, hard drive becomes RAW and inaccessible; start a clean install of Windows operating system; you give the drive to someone else or discard it.

Formatting or reformatting a hard drive seemed to remove all data from it. In fact, even you format a hard drive for multiple times, it only erased data on the address tables. Unless new data fully overwrites the deleted data, you can still have a chance to recover hard drive data reformatted multiple times.
