    Hello! Please, help me!
    A couple of days ago, I had fully formatted an external hard drive (not quick format) and all the contained files seemed gone. But, my bother said he needed some of these files, especially a business document. But, I had formatted it fully. Do you have any idea for this? How could I get back these files? Thanks a lot!

    As long as you didn't have used HDD Low Level Format you still should be able to get the data back. Look at the thread EFA11 suggested above.:D

    Lost data due to formatting?? Do you want to recover all the lost data then you are on the way because you can easily restore lost data with Remo Recover Windows Free Edition. Even it can also restore data lost due to other reasons such as virus attack, file system corruption, etc.. It has some powerful algorithms which scans the complete hard drive.
