A lot of people prefer to store all their valuable video files on their system hard drive. Despite the situations, where the vital videos files are susceptible to various data loss disasters. One might mistakenly format the drive containing a huge collection of video files. Nonetheless, the format operation will completely wipe the videos and all other media files residing on the disk partitions.
Important cautions to be noted:
Do not add new files to the formatted hard drive- Saving/writing new files to the formatted hard drive will overwrite the files that were deleted upon format. This, in turn, could bring down the chances of data recovery.
Third-party apps- Do not use any untrustworthy or unreliable third-party programs to restore unformat drive data.
