How to do data recovery after formatting Solid State Drives?

SSD drives (Solid State Drive) are the new data storage devices that are getting more popular in today’s generation. They are compact successors to traditional magnetic hard disks. These devices do not contain any moving heads and spinning platters like hard disks instead use flash memory to store the data which makes them superior over the hard disk. They are cheaper, smaller in size and offer a larger storage capacity. SSD’s offer superior performance, consumes less power, functions silently, shortens data access time and is more resistant to shock than traditional hard disks. So advanced computer users recommend switching to SSD’s and lot of manufacturers have already stopped installing conventional hard drives on their latest models. They now offer thinner, lighter and faster laptops with SSD storage.

However, these devices are not immune to data loss and losing important files from SSD have become quite common nowadays. But the most unfortunate situation arises when you lose entire data on SSD due to formatting. Have you ever formatted SSD and suffered any data loss? Are you eager to discover a solution?

For instance, while formatting Drive: E with unimportant files you might accidentally format Drive: D with precious files landing yourself in a complete data loss. Sometimes while using the external hard drives, there are many probabilities that the user may format their computer’s logical drive treating it as an external drive.
  • File System Error: The file system of the SSD gets corrupted due to a virus attack, improper startup and shut down procedures of the system. Corrupted file system renders to inaccessibility of files stored on the drive and throws unexpected error messages when you try to access the files saying that the “The disk is not formatted. Do you want to format it now?” In such situations, if you click “Yes” entire SSD will be formatted resulting in a severe data loss.
  • Re-installation of OS: You need to format the drive before preparing the system for re-installation of a new operating system. During this time the entire data stored on the drive will be deleted. This may land you in data loss if you do not possess the updated back up copy of the important files.

The operating system just removes the bookkeeping information on the drive, deletes file entries from the partition table, marks the bad sectors, creates internal address table and makes sure that all the SSD sectors are reliable to be reused.
