Retrieve files from formatted files


Hello Jhobugz,

To recover your formatted data or files, you can use data recovery programs.

One such application is the Aidfile data recovery software that will help you recover all files from formatted hard drive, for instance:

  • word files from formatted hard drive.
  • excel files from formatted external hard driver
  • photo files from formatted memory card
  • video files from formatted SD card
  • pst files from formatted USB drive
  • pdf files from formatted pc and so on.

So what you will need to do is go to the internet is download a copy of this application, install it on your computer and the after that execute and use it to recover the files that you lost as you formatted your computer or which ever gadget.

Hope this helps.

Retrieve files from formatted files


Hi Jhobugz,

There are a number of file recovery software that are available for free on the internet e.g

  • File scavenger 
  • Getdataback.

For instance if you decide to download and install get data back, then most important thing would be to locate the drive in which your formatted files were located. Recovering  files from  the entire computer might take a long time.

Follow the following steps to recover your formatted  files.

  1.  Scan for drives.

      2.    Select the source you want to perform data recovery on.

3.    Select range to scan and the file system you want to recover then click on  next button.

   4.   The application will start recovering formatted files and photos.

       5. Go to file menu and click on save recovery. The recovered files will be saved in a folder from where you choose an appropriate application to open with.

I hope that  this information will help you recover your formatted  files.
