External hard disk drive data recovery after format

In the past, people have to hold piles of files when go out. But now we just need to carry an external hard disk drive with us. But it would be a huge loss if the external hdd was formatted accidentally or intentionally. As we all know, all files saved on the external hard disk drive would be erased if it was formatted. Is it possible to get them back? The answer is certainly yes now. We have the ability to start external drive format recovery to get what we need back form the formatted external hard disk drive.

How to recover lost files form the formatted external hard disk drive

The following steps will help us retrieve what we need form the external hard disk drive after being formatted:

Step1. Download the data recovery software and install it on the computer.

Step2. Connect the formatted external hard disk drive to the exact computer on which the data restoration program installed.

Step3. Run the data recovery tool. Then choose the recovery model and target disk to scan.

Step4. We can preview the recoverable files after the scan, and they will be displayed in the list. Preview them and select the needed to recover.

Step5. Pick up one of the computer hard disks as the location to save contents to be retrieve.

Tips to restore losses totally

At first, we should not format the external hard disk drive which has been formatted once again. The reformatting action may damage the external hard disk drive at the second time and reduce the chance to get the needed files back.

Secondly, do not save any new content on the formatted external hard disk drive. The new data may overwrite the original files and cause us never can not perform the format external hard disk recovery successfully.
If you run into data loss after formatting memory card by error, you can also use the data recovery software to restore memory card photos, videos, music, etc. This software also helps recover files when memory card like SD card is not formatted and has RAW file system. Usually, when SD card is unformatted, it is strongly recommended you not to format the SD card before data recovery.
