How to recover files from accidentally fromatted USB hard drive?

 

Different types of external, removable storage devices such as external hard drives, memory cards and USB flash drives can be connected to computer using USB (universal Serial Bus) ports or USB cables. USB has become the latest standard for computer components. The main advantage of USB is that the data transfer rate provided by USB is extensively much faster compared to SCSI interface. A single USB port on the computer can connect up to 127 different devices like external hard drives, printers, modems, scanners, pen drives etc.

 

External USB hard drives are available in larger storage capacities i.e. up to 4TB. Seagate, Western Digital, Samsung, Hitachi are the popular brands of external USB hard drives. These external USB hard drives works like an internal hard drive. But, the main difference between internal and external USB hard drive is that they are enclosed outside the computer i.e. they are not fixed inside the computer. Commonly, external hard drives use USB 2.0 interface that provides 60MB/s bandwidth. Data loss is a common issue in USB 2.0 external hard drives.

 

Common data loss scenarios are described as follows:

 

Power failures: Sudden power failures while transferring data from USB hard drive to computer may results in data loss. Because, power failures during data transfer may corrupt the file system of USB hard drive making files inaccessible

 

Accidental formatting the external USB hard drives: Generally, USB hard drives need to be formatted in order to organize files in appropriate manner. Formatting the external USB drive creates new file system to organize files. But, formatting the USB drive that already contains data will delete all the data then creates new file system to store new data. Hence, accidentally formatting the USB hard drive may results in loss of files. In order to get back lost files, you ned to use reliable USB drive file retrieval software.

 

Improper removal of USB hard drive: Data loss generally occurs, if the external USB hard drive is disconnected before data is completely written to it during data transfer process. When you again connect that USB hard drive, you may encounter error messages indicating that file system has been corrupted resulting in loss of data
