Retrieve formatted data from hard disk. :

How can I recover the data from the hard disk after it was formatted for accident?Which are the best programs to recover all the data the safe way? 

The hard disk is an absolutely value storage dispositive used to save confidential and private information; however it can suffer many unfixable damages, it can even be formatted accidentally, which will cause the loss of highly important information.

For that reason, thorough the time it has been developing some sort of program which allows us to recover the data from the hard disk erased casually. Almost always, the most of the information cannot be recovered, because this depends on formatting level given to the hard disk drive.

On the internet, there are many programs which allow you to get back some data stored in certain points of the hard disk. For example the program Ontrack which happens to be the most efficient program used to recover the accidentally erased data from the hard disk but it works with the Mac operational system .

For the hard disks used mostly with the Windows operating system, you can find many programs like RecovermyFiles, which has the specific tools to recover the data from the previously formatted hard disks, recovering of files after they suffered a great physical, electrical or mechanical damage. This program is compatible on Windows with the versions 98, NT, 2000, XP, vista and 7. It works with the file bases of the kind FAT 12, FAT 16, FAT 32, NFTS and NFTS5.

There is also the program EasyRecovery Professional, which helps to recover the erased data by rebuilding the information from the root of the disk. It is compatible with Windows in all of its versions (Windows 95, 98, 98SE, Millennium, 2000, NT, XP, Vista and 7).

Another program is Boomerang which allows you to recover any information erased from the external and internal units, because it works with the base of the programs FAT 16, FAT 32 and NTFS, which are the most used until now. The only thing you have to do is clicking the option “recover it”, after that the Boomerang will start to analyze all of the storage unites in the computer.

After choosing the program you are going to use, you must have on your hands a hard disk with similar characteristics like the previously erased one, after that, you must install the hard disk so later you can configure the Bios which will be analysed by the hard disk. After doing that, you have to format the hard disk again with the same format it had at the beginning, may be NTFS or FAT 32, so finally you can install the new hard disk with similar characteristics.

Once you finished the previous process, you must restart the system so the system will start working with the installation of the operational system. Once you have installed the hard disk, you should proceed to defragment the hard disk, and then you must check on the Bios to make sure it recognized the load of the operational system. After all of that process, you should make a total inspection to the system so you can be sure the system recognized the both of the installed hard disks.

Finally, you must execute the chosen program to recover all of possible data erased previously.
