PC users may need to quick format hard disk sometimes when you want to convert the FAT File System to NTFS File System. Through formatting the drive, you can change the File System. You may just right click the drive and choose “Format”, and then selected “Quick Format”, but after clicking “OK”, you may be aware that another drive was formatted. The only solution to access your important files on the mis-formatted drive is to do format recovery.
As a general rule, formatting a disk leaves most if not all existing data on the disk medium; some or most of which might be recoverable with special tools. Special tools can remove user data by a single overwrite of all files and free space.If the disk is formatted with a different file system than the one which previously existed on the partition, some data may be overwritten that wouldn’t be if the same file system had been used. However, under some file systems (e.g., NTFS, but not FAT), the file indexes (such as $MFTs under NTFS, inodes under ext2/3, etc.) may not be written to the same exact locations. And if the partition size is increased, even FAT file systems will overwrite more data at the beginning of that new partition.
Note that reformatting a disk does not erase the data on the disk, only the data on the address tables. At this time, you may use data recovery software to recover formatted files. However, if you wrote some data on the formatted drive, you may not get the formatted files back. Because the newly added data may take the place of formatted data. if the newly installed Windows system overwritten on the sectors where your important files once locates, you can recover them all. If it does; or even just overwritten a little part of the sectors where your important files once locates, you may not get these files any more.
