Data recovery



Hi, by mistake I have reformatted (quick reformat) a full hard drive instead of a partition on it, and there is a lot of data on there that I would like to recover.

Can anyone suggest a decent, reliable and preferably free program to recover this data.

Thanks
Graham

i doubt it if there is a freeware data recovery which can do a satisfactory job, your best option is to go to partitioning software site and they tend to have software which can recover data from their partitioned hard drive (i my view highly unlikely to find a freeware). you can try google just type freeware data recovery, anything you will see is limited and that will not do what you want. do not do anything on that hardrive just leave it till you are sure you have got the right software to do the job. if even you buy one try to practice on another drive before you try it on the formatted drive (not an easy job)

link below is for a software which allows you to try their software but whether you will succeed in recovering your data that is another matter, your best option as i said is try the software company which you used their partitioning software
