Have you ever tried to recover data after reformat? Why not try reformat recovery software to ease the process?


Do you remember that you have to reformat your disk or partition when programs keep crashing or other strange problems keep occurring in your system? Usually, "reboot, reinstall, reformat" in computing, RRR in short, imply that there are three simple steps to make (almost) any problem go away, and suggest that the work of technical support can be done by anyone who has basic knowledge of the systems. However, something unhappy resulted from reformat will frustrate you to recover those lost data after reformat, especially for people who know little about computer. Well, no more worry, Data Recovery Software, designed to recover data from formatted or reformatted disks, will help a lot.

Partition and reformat

Partition involves organizing a single hard disk into logical chucks; sometimes refer to as drive "volumes", as well as setting an overall file structure to be used on each partition, such as FAT32 or NTFS. We recognize partitions in our daily use from the drive letter that Windows gives to them, i.e. C:\, D:\, E:\ etc. As far as reformat, it basically wipes any existing data from each partition and prepares the partition to accept new files. Certainly, you also can convert your former file system such as FAT to NTFS at your demand.

Data truly gone after reformat?

Most people believe that they cannot recover data any more after reformat and feel despairing. Don't panic. A format only resets files system; data on a disk is not really lost. Instead, the area on the disk containing the data is merely marked as avail (in whatever file system structure the format uses), and retains the old data until it's overwritten, so it is possible for you to recover data after format.

Note: In order to guarantee the possibility of high-quality data recovery, please do not do anything on the disk you want to recover in case of overwriting the data you want to restore.
