Hi, I need help, can anyone please advise of any data recovery programs, preferably free to recover data from an external hard drive i reformatted by accident.

Hi and thanks for your reply, I have tried "RunTime" Software and it is only picking up the program I installed after I reformatted the drive.

So you reformatted the drive and then wrote to it?

What type of reformat: quick or long ?

See this thread.

Hi, it was a quick format, ie right mouse click and format. Recuva doesn't see my backup files. I have read the thread you mentioned, are you referring to "Diskdigger".

Quick format? Then the data is probably still there. You could try GetDataBack.

But if the data is super important i’d use a professional service.

But more importantly why don’t you have a backup?
