How to recover data from FULL format?

  1. Hi

    Please, anyone, help or a advice for my problem...

    I tried to format my 2nd HD (partition f: ) into FAT32,
    but software formated instead
    my D: Win2K partition by mistake (instead of G: )!!!
    It was FULL format (not quick), and it happened under
    that same Win2K (wich restarted and died). After that nothing have been writtenon that partition. Is there a way to reclaim that data (sector by sector or something) or

    they are gone for good? And can I do it myself, cos
    I don't have means here in eastern Europe to send HD to DataRecovery firms in US or Canada.

    thanks a lot!
    luke

    You can use any file recovery program to get some of the data back.. PC Inspector FIle Recovery is free for example.

    I suggest you use data recovery software such as EASEUS Data Recovery Wizard to recover files.

    Download demo version: http://www.easeus.com/download.htm

    You can use "AdvancedRecovery" to scan your corrupted partition. After the scan is complete, the lost file will be displayed in Data Recovery Wizard, you can select them and recover them.
