Recover Data from a Formatted Partition/Drive(9 posts)
A free program to recover all files from a formatted drive... does not exist, AFAIK.
Data recovery businesses... and of course law enforcement and other such government agencies... possess such programs, but they're not typically available to you and I, and they're certainly not free.
My experience is that once you have 'Accidentally' formatted a drive and have written again you really have lost the data for good.
If you did this but did not have a back up then all is lost.
A lesson learned. Never let accidents happen, that is the first 'risk assessment'
