Hard Drive Format Tags: Hard Drives Format Storage Last response: January 31, 2002 5:12 PM in Storage Share mbs081200 January 31, 2002 11:37:08 AM Hello everyone. Well I made a rookie mistake. I accidentally formatted a hard Disk I didn't want to. I know the info can be recovered some how but I'm not sure how to do it. Any help will be appreciated. Thanks (signed "rookie") More about : hard drive format camieabz January 31, 2002 5:12:50 PM There are ways. <A HREF="http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;Q69767" target="_new">Here</A> is a link to some info. Unfortunatly its applicable to DOS version 5 & 6. Don't know if this works in today's versions. You could get old DOS versions fromyour Windows CD-ROM under "old dos", but again I'm not sure if this will work. Failing all that, you could pay a company which specialises in these problems to do it for you, at a cost though. :cool: <b><font color=blue>The Cisco Kid</font color=blue></b> :cool: Can't find your answer ?
