I can live with 80 to 90 percent data recover
Although I had always thought that a reformat completely wiped all data off. Then I noticed all this programs that promised data recovery from a reformat. So, I thought I would check with some of the more advanced users at this forum. Thanks to everyone who responded, and to those who respond after this post. I will probably reformat my hard drive in about 10 hours or so. But I will still be checking this post, the more advice the better.
I am going to use R-Studio software, it sounds good.
- Deleted without Recycle Bin, or when Recycle Bin has been emptied;
- Removed by virus attack or power failure;
- After the partition with the files was reformatted, even for different file system;
- When the partition structure on a hard disk was changed or damaged. In this case, R-Studio utilities can scan the hard disk trying to find previously existed partitions and recover files from found partitions.
-From hard disk with bad sectors. R-Studio Data Recovery Software can first copy the entire disk or its part into an image file and then process such image file. This is especially useful when new bad sectors are constantly appearing on the hard disk, and remaining information must be immediately saved.
