"I don’t want to format this partition, but it seems that I just did that by mistake."

"I just remembered, I need the files, but I have just formatted this partition."

Some of us may have been there too. Whether it was a mistake or not, We really do need to recover files from formatted partition.

Formatting is one of the easiest and most efficient ways to wipe data from a partition or even a disk. It is also a process of getting the partition ready for the next job.

Is it possible to recover files from formatted partitions?

For most of the situations, Yes. Then, why? Because there is no such thing as making your files disappear. Every partition has an address table. When you want to save the files, your computer will “write” the data in this address table, and mark it as your files name. Formatting this partition will not erase the data, but it will “erase” the marks. The next you want to save other files, the original files will be “overwritten”. This “overwritten” will make data very hard to be recovered, but as long as the data in fine, with the help of TogetherShare Data Recovery, you could recover files from formatted partition easily.
