I have accidentally deleted data on partition with HPFS file system . My recovery program GetDatBack for NTFS works just with NTFS partitions. Can I perform a quick re-formatting of the partition with HPFS file system, so that its become NTFS and then try to undelete lost data with the program? Can I also do that trick with HFS+ file system?

Hi,
 If i understand correctly you are using HPFS High Performance File System related to OS/2. As per my understanding if you try to do some file operations on your file system there are chances that your deleted file blocks may be reallocated to newly stored files and you might loose data. I am not sure how the data can be recovered,  but I think doing any changes to your Filesystem like reformatting, etc you might loose the data.

All the best with data recovery.

Thanks,
Leela

Please dont try changing file format you might loose your data.

Try other software which supports the same file system

No. If you try to reformat the disk with NTFS, then you may lose all your data completely. Instead, you should try to find another program that supports to recover data from HPFS directly.
