    Recently, one of my drive partitions becomes really strange. Every time I click this partition, the windows would give a message error and asks me to format it. That’s why I formatted it immediately. But, all the stored data is still gone at the same time. But, some of the deleted files are really precious for me. So, can any one help me get them back? Any idea or solution can be very welcome!

    Next time, you’d better not format your drive or partition without a data backup.

    But, now, have you overwritten this partition with any new file since then?

    Even thorough you’ve formatted this partition, the lost data is till stored on this partition drive physically. As long as it is not overwritten, a data recovery program can be a good way for you to go on.

    Have you heard about the similar data recovery program?

    As I know, there are many such programs that can help you out, especially some useful free data recovery programs like 4 Card Recovery Freeware, Recuva, TestDisk and more.

    No matter which one you select to apply, you’d better not save the program folders and files on the same formatted partition.
