Recover Data from Erased hard drive
Want to recover data from accidently erased hard drive?
Sorry, Erasing data with ByebyeData Eraser will make data vanish forever. No software is able to recover overwritten data. Even though you can find some pages or guides title with ‘recover data from erased hard drive’ they actually can’t, just like the way you find this page.
Like some pages had mentioned that giving the right software, data can be recovered from erased hard drive, and they recommended Recuva, which program we happened to test in how to permanently wipe files and folders. The result shows Recuva is failed to recover erased files and folders, neither will other recovery programs.
Recover Data from Deleted hard drive
When the title goes like this, recovering data become possible, we have details steps on how get deleted files back using Recuva, it’s easy to get them back when nothing new added to the space you just deleted:
Run the software, then specify a location to recover, scan and you’ll get what you’ve deleted.
There’s no secret of the recovering technology when it’s a well-known fact that Windows only removes the references to the file but leaves content intact when you press the delete button or even empty the recycle bin. Recovery programs are able to scan each sector and display the content again without any references that have been deleted.
But when files are overwritten, contents in each sector are filled with meaningless binary characters, all the scanning will eventually turn out to be 1s and 0s, which had no signs of original data.
Tips: when you found you added the wrong drive to erase after you confirmed the erase operation in ByebyeData Eraser, you can cancel the operation as quick as you can, because unlike deleting, erasing takes more time to overwrite data, and if you have chosen the multiple overwrite methods, that time may take even longer. Although you cannot get back what you have erased, you can save the rest data.
After cancelled the erasing progress, you can download some recovery programs and deep scan the drive you had erased, some files can be recovered if you clicked the Cancel button timely, they may be corrupted, but you can still get some useful info from them.
