Recover data after formatting the Maxtor external HDD

My external HDD which bought from Maxtor was formatted by mistake the other day. Consequently, all files and folders saved on it have been lost now. Those files contain pictures, word documents, clients information, and so on. What I want to express is that those contents are very important for me ands I can not afford to lose them at all. Anyone could kindly help me get them back?  -Susan

What’s more, it is not sophisticated. Here is an example of my students who format his external hard disk by mistake.

Convert raw external drive to NTFS FAT32 without losing data

It is not a piece of good news that the memory card or other storage devices turns to raw abruptly. Raw is a system error, so we need to convert raw to normal files system NTFS or FAT32. Then how to convert it? Some people say that we can format the raw external drive or card and convert to file system which we wanted. But all files and folders saved on it would be lost on that case. We can not format the problematic external drive or memory card if there are important files need to be accessed. We can restore them at first.

The first thing we should do is to recover data from the raw external disk or memory card. And the second thing we can do is to format the questionable portable drive and then convert it to NTFS or FAT32 or other normal file system.

How to restore lost files from the raw external drive/card

Step1. connect the raw external drive/card to the computer. If it is a memory card, we need a card reader to insert it to computer.

Step2. download and mount the data recovery software on the same computer.

Step3. run the data restoration program on the computer, then choose the recovery model and aim disk to scan.

Step4. we can preview the restorable files in the list after the scan, so preview them and select the needed to recover.

Step5. choose the location to store files to be retrieved.

Why data recovery tool could retrieve files from the raw external drive

You may receive message like CHKDSK is not available for RAW drive. Though the external hard disk or memory card can not be opened when they are in the raw file system, files and folders which saved on them previously are still stored on them. We just can not view them when the drive is raw. So there is a chance for data recovery tool to find them by scanning and recover them. we can also perform data recovery to  USB  stick memory card raw file system.
Memory card turns to RAW format and want to restore pictures off the card? You can also use the data recovery software.
