Unformat Seagate external hard disk

The first reaction of most of us when format the external hard disk accidentally may be unformat it. But I have not heard the unformat tool yet. It does not mean we will lose those files forever. Though there is no unformat too, we can access those lost contents by restoring them. Yes, it is true that we can recover the data form the formatted external hard disk. What’s more, it is not sophisticated. Here is an example of my students who format his external hard disk by mistake.
Dear teacher, could you kindly help me? I formatted the external hard disk by error last night, but the tasks remind to be done was saved on it and I have no backup. Is there any way for me to get those lost files back? Other students told me that you can help me unformat the Seagate external hard disk drive to restore those losses. I will be very appreciated for your help.  –Ben

I have helped him to retrieve what he need from his Seagate external hard disk. Here are the steps I told him to do as follows:

Step1. Download and launch the data recovery software on the computer.

Step2. Insert the formatted external hard disk to the same computer.

Step3. Double click the data restoration program to start it, and then choose the recovery model and target disk to scan.

Step4. After the scan, preview the contents in the list, which are the recoverable files. Then pick up the needed to recover.

Step5. Select one of the computer hard disks as the location to store files to be retrieved.

The reason to save them on one of the computer hard disks but not the formatted external hard disk is to avoid the overwriting event.

Except from the Seagate external hard disk, we also can restore files from the external hard disk come from other brands after being formatted with the help of data recovery tool. For example, the WD external hard disk, ADATA external hard disk, HGST external hard disk, and so on.
If you accidentally reformat your memory card and want to get back lost files, you can also use the data recovery software to restore memory card photos videos music and more.This software supports to recover images from SD card, XD card, CF card and memory stick when you format card by mistake or when SD card is not formatted.
