How to Recover Formatted Hard Drives
Formatting is the procedure of preparing the storage medium for writing information and this mainly involves establishing a blank file system for new data that would be written later. Formatting a hard drive can be easily done nowadays. In Windows, you can perform a quick format with the built-in tool by right-clicking on the drive letter and select format…We can also use format command lines to perform the quick format or clean a hard drive. There are many things we can achieve with drive formatting rather that merely removing all files.
Since formatting involves removing all the existing files and installed applications that are present on the hard drive, it is important to have a good reason before thinking about this option.
1. Your Computer Won’t Start We sometimes receive warnings like “Non-System disk or disk error，replace disk and press a key to reboot”; “Error Loading Operating System”. Errors like this are likely caused by viruses – viruses that attack and corrupt boot sectors and partition tables and paralyze your system, making it unable to boot. You can do little about this but to repair the partition table by formatting the disk and pay more attention to viruses in the future.
2. Hard Drives Riddled with Errors Errors like “Location is not available – Access Denied” or “Hard drive/disk is not formatted” can be caused by various reasons.If there are a lot of errors and virus problems in the system, we might consider a disk formatting to cleanse the drive, which should work in these circumstances as it wipes out all the data on the computer which includes the viruses and the corrupted files.
