How to recover the formatted data of external hard drive?

Editor Review :

Using the complex pattern recognition technology, we can retrieve the file fragments distributed in different places on the fromatted hard drive, and reorganize these file fragments according to the statistical information. Then build a virtual file system in memory and list all the files and directories, which are all the file directories we can see after scanning with software.           

So the premise of retrieving data is that there are still file information and data blocks in the hard drive. Even if the entire partition is not visible, or there are only a few partition maintenance information on the formatted hard drive, the hard drive data can still be recovered with high quality.

    In modern society, with the rapid development of science and technology, electronic products are gradually popularized. Hard drive, external hard drive, U drive, memory card and other storage media play an important role in saving and transferring data. However, users who often use these storage media should have a deep understanding that these storage media will not work well occasionally, which will bring inconvenience to our life.

Therefore, the wisest way is to recover the data of the external hard drive first, and recover the important data in the external hard drive            Format of external hard drive failed      
          Often people who use the external hard drive will encounter various problems. Sometimes they will prompt that they can use the external hard drive only after it is formatted. It is very distressing to have a prompt that they can't complete the format after clicking. Generally, this situation is caused by a bad path inside the hard drive, or the external power supply of the hard drive fails to operate. If the hard drive has a bad track, although it can be used temporarily, the performance of the hard drive will be significantly reduced. If the corresponding processing of bad track is not carried out in time, it is likely to become more, leading to data loss and no use of the hard drive. If there is a problem with the power supply, it is necessary to check whether there is a problem with the USB power supply or the data line, or the interface of the external hard drive. In any case, if you are not clear about it, you can consult a professional data recovery company at the first time to help you operate reasonably and avoid data loss or damage caused by wrong behaviors.

I'm too sleepy, so I'm really confused and format the external hard drive. The next day, when I found that there was nothing in the plate, I really regretted it.            When I was at a loss, my colleagues sent me a piece of data recovery software. Can the task of data recovery of external hard drive really be handed over to it?

After inserting the external hard drive, I followed the course of how to recover the data of the external hard drive that I learned in the daytime. According to the tips of the software, I really recovered the data of the hard drive step by step. I save these data to another drive, and quickly open the files one by one to make sure that there is nothing missing. As a result, every file is intact!

    Step 1: insert the formatted external hard drive, run the software, and select "hard disk drive" in the pop-up "select media type" window. Why not choose "multimedia / external device" or "storage device"? That's because the capacity of the external hard drive is often large, so it's a good choice for the software to arrange the corresponding recovery program.      
          
    Step 2: select the volume label to scan, that is, the drive letter of the formatted external hard drive. It's very simple, don't you need to explain more?
