Hi,

 

I have a BIG problem, for an unwanted formatted and reinstalled drive I have lost all of my data.

It is possible to give my files Back, but with most of softwares I dont can recive Back the folder structure, or some of files such *.iwp that is from Incomedia x5 to modify my website.

 

I have tried with the Hirens boot cd,,, nothing.

Anyone knows an other Multirescue disk, or a software that starts from cd/usb that can help me to solve this problem?

 

Regards TheIndio

How was it formatted? A volume formatted under Windows from Vista onward is overwritten with zeros unless a quick format is specified. Once a zero-fill has been done, no content will be able to be recovered.

hamlius, do you think OP probably did the quick-format rather than the Zero-Each-Byte? If quick-format, if these are work files, would OP have to seek a recovery-specialist?
