How can i Recover My Formatted Hard disk Data?

Asked By 20 points N/A Posted on -


I have a Samsung with 500 GB sata hard disk drive. Last month, I formatted my D drive because of some crashed problems. On this drive, I have a very important data but I lost it after formatting the D drive. Now, I need to recover this data from my formatted drive.

Please tell me how I can recover my important data without using money.

MiniTool Power Data Recovery is a free software for recovering lost data. You can download it from the site below:

Do not install this on the same drive where the data that you want to recover is.

Data recovery also depends on how often you used the drive where the data is lost, which is why you should have thought of recovering the data immediately after reformatting the drive, and you take note that this should be done 1 month later. 

If the part of the drive where your data used to be has had data written on it for so many times already, then it will be extremely difficult for any data recovery program to recover your lost data. Another scenario where it will be difficult to retrieve the data, is if you used a disk wipe program or performed a zero-fill on that hard drive.

Good luck on recovering your data. Post back your results.

When done with the installation, click the Complete Recovery button on the Data Recovery Wizard. If your hard disk deleted volumes and drives, use the Partition Recovery.

You can search for all lost files automatically to recover all lost files types or just search lost files by types and select from the list of files which file you want to search. Tick the Ignore bad sectors check box.
