What can I do to rescue my deleted drive files? Answered

Hey, guys! I need your help to rescue my deleted drive files. From last week, to prepare a job presentation, I had searched and made many related files and photos on my USB external hard drive. However, yesterday, this external hard drive was formatted and all my files seemed to be deleted completely. But, there was no time for me to make these files and stuffs again one by one. Do you have any idea for me to take them all back directly from this hard drive? In fact, from the internet, I know there is data recovery software that can help me out. But, I don’t know whether they can work on my drive and copy my stuffs back successfully. I don’t want to lose anyone of them. Can you help me?

OK! According to my experiences, you are

original drive in case of farther data loss.

Secondly, plunge it to computer and take
chances with data recovery software.

Thirdly, back up all restored data on a
different drive well.

Yeah, in your case, without new data
written on the same external hard drive, some drive format recovery software
really works in rescuing your preferred files back.

Therefore, in your case, save nothing new
on this drive and also stop doing anything to it.

And then, plunge it to your PC and download
data recovery software to scan it and see how many of your original drive files
could be found and rescued successfully.

program quickly over the internet.
