“Hi, it was on the last week that I have upgraded my laptop’s operating system to Windows 10. I don’t have any negative opinions about the features of this operating system. But still, my complaint is related to Windows 10. Do you know why? Yesterday, I formatted E drive of my computer instead of the intended thumb drive. There were about 20 GB of files stored in that formatted drive. I know it is my own mistake. But, I know that there are powerful tools which are capable of recovering formatted data from Widows 10 hard drive. I don’t want to try any kinds of spam tools. So can anybody tell me how to recover data from formatted hard drive Windows 10?”
Although, Windows 10 possess various advanced features which its predecessors don’t have, there isn’t any considerable differences in the data storage mechanisms. Like any other computer, Windows 10 also uses an internal hard disk drive as the main storage device. (In some Windows 10 devices, it can be SSDs). An advanced version of NTFS is the default file system in Windows 10. This OS allows you to perform a quick as well as deep level formatting on different drives like any other Windows computer (Note that, you cannot format the partition that contains your OS files).
Suppose, you want to free up the entire data from a partition/drive to store new files. Then you can format that partition either by quick formatting or by deep formatting. It will removes all entries from partition table associated with the drive which you have formatted. As a result, all data from that partition will get disappeared. Even though, such data will still remain in hard drive as long as the space occupied by them get overwritten by new files. If it is associated with a Windows 10 hard drive, with the help of a powerful recovery utility, you can recover data from formatted hard drive on Windows 10.
