Recover data from formatted external hard drive

Last response: in Storage

I need to recover my work files from my formatted external drive. It is a Buffalo 160GB drive. For some reason, this formatted drive has been partitioned into 2.
Is there still a way to recover my files back?
Any idea is appreciated.

You should try a free recovery program (I had tried it to successfully retrieve the data from my formatted drive, just like you.) to regain the formatted data.
Note for you:
1. Stop using this drive right now to avoid overwriting the original data, which can make your data gone permanently.
2. Save your recovered files on a different storage device in case of recovery failure.
3. Always back up you data in the future.

Thanks a lot!
I have tried your your step by step. This free recovery program is actually free and efficient. Now, I have recovered my needed works files from the formatted drive.
Thank you very much!!!!!!
