Why Can We Recover Formatted Hard Drive?

When a hard drive is formatted, the Operating System will reset the FAT or MFT on the disk. The reason why you can no longer see the files under Windows is that the MFT tells the Operating System the drive letter does not contain any files. But the files are still there. That's why we could recover data after formatting a disk.
