As is my username I was a bit of a big n00b this morning, installing a fresh Win8 and accidentally deleted my downloads HDD instead of my SSD, don't ask, I was hungover is all I can think.

It hasn't been formatted or touched since I pressed delete so am hopeful I can recover most of the files, any suggestions for software to do so?

I am having to do it on the recovered drive, thankfully it's a 2TB and a fairly new drive with no bad sectors/issues etc

It's recovered over 100GB of good data so far :toast: There's 550GB in total :wtf:

deleted file recovery

Hi, you can retrieve all your deleted files from hard drives, memory card or any other storage device by using deleted file recovery software. One of my friends had the same problem and I mentioned this product. With the help of this tool he was glad that he got back all his deleted files. You can download and try the demo version of the software. Any doubts reply me..

As long as you have not put any data on it, it should be recoverable if only quick formatted. All this does is clear the file table and show empty. once you start writing to the drive, it will over write your data.

Regularly backing up your stuff can prevent this from happening, or just watching what you're doing but it's an honest mistake if you're not taking your time. Good luck with recovering your stuff, hopefully its a lesson well learned and you get all of the important stuff back. :eek:

I used Partition Wizard Home Edition on the Hiren's Boot CD when I accidentally quick formated one of my 1tb back up drives. Saved all the data which was about 800gb worth.
