Software to reover data on a formatted hard drive?
Posted on 2008-06-18
I formatted a laptop yesterday, and even thought the person I was helping told me everything was backed up, it apparently was not all backed up. I have software tools I have purchased in the past that recover deleted files (assuming they have not been over written), but I am pretty sure they don't work if the hard disk has been wiped clean...i.e. reformatted. The laptop had Windows XP pro on it before, and I simply formatted and reloaded Windows XP pro again, but I need to see if there are any tools I can use to try and recover data.
