Any way to undo a format and make the OS bootable?
Posted on 2011-03-19
Had a user initiate an OS install on a machine they don't want to upgrade anymore. The partitions were deleted via the windows installer and just quick formatted. No OS installation was done.
So obviously the data is recoverable but that's not the issue, data is backed up. But can the partition deleting and quick format be reliably undone to boot the old OS installation to save time or is that asking too much of recovery software?
