Q: Can I recover data from a formatted disk?
A: Our EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard Free Edition can recover data from formatted disk if the data is not overwritten, just depends on how you format the disk.
A disk can be formatted in three different ways: Quick, Full and Low-Level (physical) format.
For hard disks, a quick or full format is generally carried out as a high-level format, where file system information such as directory entries or FAT is initialized while data areas are not overwritten, therefore EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard Free Edition can still recover the data after a quick or full format.
On the other hand, for disk media that cannot be partitioned with FDISK, such as a floppy disk, a full format is comparable to a low-level (physical) format process, rendering the original data on the floppy disk as unrecoverable.
