EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard Download Instruction:
"Disk/drive is not formatted. Do you want to format it now?", few computer users have never bumped into this error I bet, only sometimes it will be "* drive is not accessible. The device is not ready" message or the disk simply cannot be recognized by Windows. Of course you should firstly check the drive which is reported to be not formatted to make sure the physical connection is right. What if the drive is RAW instead of invalid physical connection? Data recovery software like EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard Free Edition will help you unformat drive in such kind of condition.
"Disk/Drive is not formatted..." error may be caused by many reasons, say virus attacks or power failure etc. When you check it in disk management, it might be healthy, but it might have no file system and drive letter. When this happens, we call it a RAW drive. That means the disk is not prepared to be used within the operating system or the data can no longer be read due to data corruption, while every floppy disk or hard disk/drive needs to be formatted with a particular file system before being used, thus we get the "disk is not formatted" message when try to access a RAW disk.
To access the RAW drive again, you need to format the disk, but once you format the RAW drive, the data will be formatted and lost. So we recommend you to use format recovery software to recover and get your data back from the RAW drive before going any further. Once you've got your data back, you may feel free to format the disk showing "Disk/Drive is not formatted..." in order to access the disk and copy or re-install the recovered data for a fresh start.
