How to Recover Files from Formatted, Damaged Hard Disk/Partition/Hard Drive

Accidentally reformatting and/or installing a new operating system on the wrong hard drive? The first absolute rule you need to know is – do not write to the hard drive if you are planning on recovering data off it. When you write to a hard drive the system drivers randomly write data to the disk. So, when you write to a drive there is a good chance you are overwriting any data on it that you could have possibly restored. This means do not try to boot from the drive, or if it is an external USB drive do not store any new files on it. Next, you can use data recovery software to recover files from formatted hard drives.
