Recover Accidentally Formatted Partition

Data Recovery, by

Accidents are inevitable and there would not be any surprises, if you accidentally format your hard disk. Many come across the situation when there is formatting or re-formatting of the hard disk or any other storage device, either accidentally or intentionally. As a result, we land up in a catastrophic situation when we lose access to the hard disk partitions and hence the data within. But nothing to worry about, Kernel for Windows data recovery software is here to help you out. Basically, there are two cases of formatting.

Case 1: when you have formatted the drive to same file system i.e. from FAT to FAT or from NTFS to NTFS.
Case 2: when you have formatted the drive to other file system i.e. from FAT to NTFS or vice-versa.

The first case mentioned above is termed as formatting as the drive is formatted to the same file system as earlier. The other one is called re-formatting, where drive is formatted with different file system. In re-formatting, chances of overwriting of data are high and hence, negligible chances of successful data recovery. The software raises the chances of accurate and successful recovery, both in formatted and re-formatted case.

For time effective and result oriented recovery of formatted and re-formatted partition, Kernel Windows data recovery software provides you with two productive recovery modes: Standard Scan and Advance Scan.
