One of the more difficult Windows data recovery projects is attempting to recover damaged or deleted files after the computer’s internal hard disk drive or any digital media connected to the computer had been reformatted. Reformatting marks all archived files as deleted and the space of those files available for writing of new information.
Quality software for Windows recovery allows you to scan for and recognize any damaged or deleted files on a hard drive both internal and external or other solid state media connected by means of USB port to your computer. In cases where one is dealing with a crashed hard disk drive it may be necessary to reload Windows thus reformatting that drive so as to make the computer operational. Once your PC loads Windows you will need to then use the data recovery program to undelete the archived files using the underlying data of those files which is still in place on your hard disk drive.
