I have a WD 2TB external hard drive with two partitions: one for Windows and one for data. However, my brother formatted the data partition with the full format a few minutes ago. A great amount of data had not been backed up yet. Is it still possible to recover them back?
All right! Go try a free recovery tool to recover your data: http://www.squidoo.com/format-recovery
This free application has helped many people to retrieve their formatted files, including me. It is really free and worth trying.
Note for you:
1. Do not store any new file to overwrite the original files, which can make them gone forever.
2. Do not save the recovered files on the original drive, which can cause recovery failure.
3. Do not forget to back up your important files as possible as you can in the future.
Hello! Thank you for your free advice. It helped me restoring all my wanted data from the formatted partition. I also have learned a lot.
