I accidentally lost data from my hard drive while formatting the system. I want to know a suitable way through which I could recover lost data even from a physically damaged hard disk. If you people have nay idea please let me know, its urgent.

I accidentally lost data from my hard drive while formatting the system.

Are you saying that you formatted the HDD without backing up your data first or are you recommending the services of the data recovery experts that you used :unsure:

I want to know a suitable way through which I could recover lost data even from a physically damaged hard disk.

Is this a hypothetical question or do you have a damaged HDD, if it is the latter can you please tell us what type of damage the HDD has suffered.

In answer to the above, re: Damaged HDDS. If the platters are damaged then there is very little if any chance of recovering the data, if however the HDDs PCB has been damaged these can often be replaced and the HDD can then be used again.

Data recovery experts are expensive + they cannot guarantee any data recovery let alone 100% success, hence the reason why backing up any/all important data asap is always recommended.
