I have a WD PASSPORT external drive that was formatted and need to recover the data from it. No new data has been written to it since the format. The formatting only took like one min so I think the data is still there. Any suggestions?

I used EASEUS Data Recovery Wizard Professional to retrieve several thousand files I had on a WD Passport that was corrupted, then fixed, then formatted. Amazing piece of kit. Passport wasn't even showing up under 'My Computer'. Drop me a line for more info:

PS Now that it's been formatted I seem to have lost the files that come with it that enable it to be hooked up to Playstations, Xboxs, etc. Anybody know where I can get those? Or what they're called? I forget.

Apart from that, works perfect! :-)
