Data recovery from an un formated drive Tags: Hard Drives Laptops Data Recovery Hewlett Packard Storage Last response: December 9, 2012 2:41 AM in Storage Share Nasir639 December 8, 2012 6:39:18 PM Hello, I bought a HP Pavillion laptop with windows vista on it about 11 months ago. Recently the fan stopped working and then i could not get access into windows. I took to the retailer I bought it from, although it was under the warranty but the said they can not recover the data because the disk is showing as unformatted (corrupt). Can anyone please tell me how do I recover the data from the laptop. As I mentioned I can not get into Windows. The laptop just turns on and take me to HP recovery mode. Thanks for your help.

Then use data recovery software on the clone. Can't find your answer ? Ask ! Publish Related resources: ForumIs it possible to un-format a hard drive and retrieve lost data ?
