    Hey guys ;)
    Today I my Win 8.1 died and i decided to reinstall it. During installation I chose wrong disk to install (it was disk with very important data), than I formated it with Windows tools and install Windows. When Windows started I realized that I deleted all data on the disk.
    Is it possible to recover anything. I know that 22 Gb, where is now located Windows, can't be recovered, but there was about 120 Gb of information and I want get it back.

    Any solutions what programs am I should use to do it?

    Thanks in advance ;)

    I have three hard drives and one SSD in my desktop. Although it's a PITA, if I'm installing an OS, I rip my computer open and disconnect all but the intended target drive. Saves a lot of "palm of hand colliding with forehead" movement.

    Finally I got back my data with this awesome program EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard 7.0. It recovered all files with Folder structure :) Other programms, which I used, couldn't get data back

    Its far easier to actual give drives names rather than relying on drive letters that's when problems can happen.

    You are right. I'll give a name to my main hard drive. But considering on that stress, which I had, I'll never forget to check before installing OS

    Fantastic! Glad you got your treasures back. Making a note of EaseUS DR, for sure.

    I do that as well. Label every drive with make, size and OS. (HIT1TB-W7ULT, WD3TB-W81PRO). Three HD's, all different mfg. Years ago I bought three of the same drives from NewEgg when on sale. Didn't bother to label them. Went to do some kind of cloning or partition operation, then realized I had no idea who the "source" and "destination" were. At least I was smart enough to quit the app., label the drives and start over. Wasn't in the mood for "data roulette".

    Hi, in fact, you can use recovery tool to restore your data. 4Card Recovery is such a kind of recovery software, you can download it freely on the internet. Before using it, you should know that if your original data changed, you will not be able to get it back. So if you want to recover your files, do not overwrite your old data.

    Years ago I plugged in an old drive I wanted to re-format & use. Turned out it had the same volume label as an existing drive. Windows had changed the drive order on bootup & I'd formatted the last drive which was my good one!
