Formatted Dell Inspiron Laptop Hard Drive Data Recovery

Formatted your Dell Inspiron Laptop's hard drive and want to restore lost data from it?

Hard Drive Recovery Software is the best option to recover lost data from formatted drive or reformatted drives. This software can perform signature search to find and recover each and every lost file from formatted hard drives. Data Recovery from formatted hard drive is possible because, the files are not permanently gone when the drive is formatted. Instead, only pointers pointing to the allocation table are removed making the data inaccessible.

Situations in which you might have formatted your hard drive

Operating System crash: If your Operating System crashes due to some reasons then you need to re-install the Operating System to get an access to the hard drive data. During re-installation of Operating System, you will be asked to format the drive. If you format the drive without taking a backup then you will lose your entire data resulting in data loss

Formatted the drive to get rid of viruses: If your system is severely affected by viruses and you are unable to remove those harmful viruses using an antivirus program then the only way remains is to format the drive. Formatting the drive removes all the viruses as well as increases the system performance. But, it deletes data stored on the drive thus you should take a backup of data. If you forgot to take a backup then you may end up in loosing data.

Format Error: When the partition of your hard drive becomes RAW then it may display an error message, which indicates that the partition is not formatted properly and ask you to format the drive. If you click on “No” button then you will get the same error, which does not allow you to access the data. If you click on “Yes” button then your drive gets formatted resulting in data loss.

Accidental format of wrong partition: You might have accidentally formatted the wrong partition of your hard drive using Windows Disk Management utility or Command Prompt. For instance, assume that you want to format the Drive D. If you accidentally format the Drive E instead of Drive D by using Windows Disk Management utility then all the data stored on Drive E gets deleted instead of  Drive D resulting in data loss

Precautions to be taken to avoid permanent data loss

You should not perform any write operations like saving or copying any new data to the formatted hard drive. This is because, copying or saving operations overwrite the lost data that still exists on the hard drive resulting in permanent data loss. Therefore, stop using the drive to avoid all these problems
