Recover data lost after formatting the drive

Losing data after accidental formation of the hard drive can be a real pain. If you won’t react immediately to retrieve your lost data then you might lose your important data permanently. Luckily, there are technologies today that can recover data from formatted drive.

One of the easiest ways to recover your files from a recently formatted hard drive is to use reliable data recovery software. There are lots of applications today that can rescue your files quickly.

To test the software’s capabilities, it is always recommended to try the demo version first. Most demo versions will show you what files can be recovered from a formatted drive. Unfortunately, demo versions will not allow you to actually rescue or retrieve the files. You need to purchase the commercial full version to proceed with data recovery.

Before you start recovering your files, it is important to install the software on another partition of your drive. You can also use a separate computer to run the software and use the formatted drive as a separate storage device of the secondary computer. Installing the file recovering software on the reformatted drive could overwrite your files which could make the rescue effort more complicated and difficult.

Crashed hard drive recovery

A hard drive is the most widely used media for storage of data. A hard drive is preferred over other storage media, because of its high access speeds, and accuracy in fetching data. A hard drive is composed of many physical components such as disk platters, read/write head, spindle, motor etc. There are many occasions in which, a hard drive suffers from loss of data due to physical errors such as head crash, or physical damage to the platters. In such cases, chances of recovering data from the damaged hard drive are very remote.

Crashed hard drive recovery is relatively easy, if the loss of data is logical, and not physical. This is because, no matter how bad the data loss, all the lost/deleted data can be recovered from a hard drive, provided we take some necessary precautions. Data loss can occur in a hard drive, due to virus attacks, malware, power surge, sabotage etc. This may result in loss of data from the hard drive or, in some cases lead to a hard drive crash, which might render the whole hard drive inaccessible by the user.

REMO Recover (Windows) Pro Edition software makes crashed hard drive recovery a simple task. The software is specially designed for systems running on Windows operating system, and lets the user recover data from lost/deleted partitions of a hard drive. REMO Recover (Windows) Pro Edition software provides some of the best features, that the user can make use of, to the fullest.

The need for a Disk imaging software

A disk image is a file which consists of files in different formats. It is usually stored with an .iso extension. The disk image consists of all the contents of the storage device, copied sector by sector onto the file, along with the structure of the storage device, whose image is being created. Disk images can be compressed to save space. A compressed disk image saves room by using an algorithm that amounts to digital shorthand.

Taking a disk image has many advantages over the regular backup. In a regular backup, the data has to be saved onto the appropriate partition manually. If you use the regular backup, the drives have to be manually partitioned and formatted, and the operating system installed and configured. Then, the programs have to be reinstalled and reconfigured, followed by restoration of data files from backups. A disk image can take care of all of these time-consuming steps with a single, easy command. Disk images can also be used in recovering lost data from hard drives.

You can obtain a disk image using a good. REMO Recover (Windows) Pro Edition software lets you take the disk image of a given drive, and later helps you in recovering lost data from the created disk image. The software also lets you recover data from lost/deleted partitions with ease.

A recovery tool with deep scanning technology is invaluable

In contrast if you have accidentally reloaded Windows on a faulty PC before recovery of your files you will need the most powerful, deepest scanning data recovery tool you can find. You will not be so concerned with preview as you may very likely have a quarter of a million files to recover and you will not want to look at them one by one.

Reloading Windows means that you have reformatted your hard drive and thus marked all the spaces those files occupy as empty. Luckily the actual file data is still present. A deep search of a reformatted drive will return well over 90% of the file information on that drive. This data can then be re-saved and reloaded onto the reformatted drive.
