Hi :welcome:

 

Yes it's possible to recover data from a formatted hard drive specially if you didn't put new files/folders on the drive after the format.

 

I don't know if Recuva is able to recover files on a situation like that, the program is free so you can try the most important part is not to write anything to the HDD, you need to recover the files to a different drive.

 

I'm not familiar with hdata recovery, it seems the program can scan for the files and show a preview to evaluate if it can recover your files after purchase. Most commercial recovery programs will work that way, only do recovery after buying the program. In some of them is possible to save the search for data done by the program, this will speedup the recovery process because the next time you only need to load the search already saved.

Hi,
 
I agree with SleepyDude, data recovery is possible from the formatted drive but data recovery from the overwritten drive is not possible. So it is advisable not to use the drive if you don't want to take data loss risk. From the above-mentioned tools, I like Recuva as it is free for recovering lost files. There is one more tool which I like the most is Stellar Free data recovery software. You can give it a shot.

Did you happen to notice the date of this thread and the fact that the OP never bothered to reply to SleepyDude.

 

Your willingness to help others is appreciated but please check the date of the OP before replying and avoid repeatedly suggesting the use of the same recovery software, it comes across as being spammy.

Hi, you can download the free version of the Sysinfo Tools Data recovery software. I tried this software a month back. It successfully recovered my lost files in my system.

You have to turn to a professional data recovery program to restore deleted photos. And before that, you'd better stop importing new data until you successfully regain lost ones, which aims to prevent your deleted files from being overwritten by new data. And I'd like to recommend you the most effective tool to help recover lost data from Android device.By running this program, all lost data on the SD card can be scanned and arranged on the menu with details.

I've had to recover data from drives that were actually damaged internally (One of the actuator arms was broken to the extent it was lying on the disk platter) and I managed to recover the data in that case, so don't worry there is a simple solution to your problem.  Not long ago my HDD stopped being recognised by windows...I could see it using windows Disk Management utility but no partitions, not active, no file system etc...DM advised me I should initialize it etc.  I thought not,,,instead trying some software EaseUS, Paragon, Acronis etc none did the job.  I know what had happened...the partition table had been corrupted. I hadn't copied any data onto the drive since this happened so I know the data still there. Using DM I converted the drive to a dynamic disk (do not mix a MBR disk so the drive could be seen then I used  MiniTool Partition Wizard to recover the partition...worked immediately lost some space at  the end of the partition (not even 100MB) from 4TB..windows stores a backup of the PT at the end of the partition which was also damaged. Primary partitions and an extended partition data are contained in the Partition Table, a 64-byte data structure located in the same sector as the Master Boot Record (cylinder 0, head 0, sector 1).  For further information see https://www.ntfs.com...ition-table.htm. The more detailed your understanding is of anything you can solve almost any problem.  You don't have to buy expensive software for something that is not to difficult to solve.  Mind you one of the best pieces of software for disks, partition etc is "TestDisk". Not much it cant do and its free...I went to use it but it can take some time (hours) to do certain tasks...I figured my way should work and it took less than 20 minutes. :spoton:
