Recover Formatted Data

Formatting a hard drive erases all the data stored and reset the file system. There are times whereby users lose digital data stored in hard drives due to formatting. Losing vital files proves to be a critical problem for any user. Let us see how major reasons that lead to data loss after formatting the hard drive-

  • The first and foremost reason for the deletion of HDD data is accidental formatting. While accessing data from the hard drives, you might mistakenly hit the format and erase the important files
  • Corruption of the disk file system makes the drive data inaccessible. In such cases, you will be forced to format the drive to use it further. Suppose the data stored in such drives are not backed up, then data loss from disk partition is guaranteed
  • There are also chances of Root Directory or Master Boot Record corruption due to hard drive crash. Since they are like a file index to access the stored information from the hard drives, corruption leads to inaccessibility to files/folders on the drive. At this point, the drive format seems to be the best fix to resolve the issue
  • Virus/malware threats, usage of unreliable third-party tools, improper ejection, incorrect file conversion techniques, etc. also give rise to format errors
